Hawaii, will you just love me already?

I've only been planning to go on this trip to Hawaii for 3 weeks now. But they've been the longest weeks EVER. I'm in 5 courses that don't care if you're not going to be there as long as you turn in the work and it's not late. Which meant in those 3 weeks I was doing 6 weeks worth of work to get ahead before we leave. I also work 2-3 days a week. They could care less that this photography gig is a job too and had to get those covered. Well everything was insanely stressful but even when I was almost in tears, thinking about going to Hawaii and getting my mind off of everything in the now helped. I would just get on Pinterest and look at amazing photo ideas (that we will do better, obviously) and it made me so excited. Right now there is about 36 hours until we are on the plane leaving and the excitement is kinda exhausting, hah. There's been so much build up but I'm positive it will not be a let down. Tomorrow I get my braces off, my camera is coming and we got our mermaid tails in the mail today. MERMAID TAILS. Yeah. Too excited. Life is good.
