Well for starters the name of the Cruise ship that we went on was called the "Celebrity Equinox" and it was a huge ship. They grew grass, had hot glass blowing show, they had a health spa, etc, it was a very nice ship. Our room was nice and cozy. The shows were awesome (especially the ones that Candice was in) one of the guest shows had a British ventriloquist named Gareth Oliver who was on "Britain's got talent" with Susan Boyle (he was so funny and I got a picture with him) and of course who ever mom was talking to she told them that Candice was her daughter (oh ma). We got to hang out with Candice and even met her friends/crew/cast and they were really nice. Coincidentally one of Candice's good friends Lauren (whose a dancer on the ship) mom and grandma was on the same cruise so we got to meet them to (they were from the UK). It was funny because my mom and Lauren's mom were both hair stylus and both have their own salon (what were the odds?) so we hung out with the mum and grandma to. I didn't over eat on the ship (my clothes still fit me) so that's a plus (wish I could say the same for my mom). I actually watched what I ate, went to the gym and only took the stairs. The first 2 days and last 2 days we were at sea. But between them we visited 5 Virgin island.
I got something in our room saying I would get complementary tanzanite earrings (because it's my birth stone and I recently had a birthday) at St Thomas port. So we went to the jewelry store showed the woman the paper and I theses very tiny, tiny earrings (*stares*.... No seriously were are my complementary earrings.). What a rip off. But they were free and apparently tanzanite was becoming very rare and were even surpassing demands in value or something like that so I didn't complain. We (me, mom, Candice, Lauren, her folks and Katie [another dancer]) went to a little beach called "Emerald Beach" which was nice. Found some sea glass and a few shells on the beach.
We weren't at this island long (nothing much to do there really) But me mom and Lauren's mom and grandma went into St Kitts were I did something unspeakable. Something that I have never in my life would never ever do. Something that might shock those of you who know me very well (so maybe like 2-3 people). I........ Bought a tanzanite pendent a chain for $149 O_O. My mom for some reasons was so proud of me for buying (why I don't know).
We went to a beach called "The Boat Yard" and it was awesome. You get a free drink and they had a rope you could swing off of. There were people who worked on other ships who were there to.
This was a lot like the rain forest. We went to natural springs and waterfalls but it was a bit long and wasn't really moms cup of tea (me I didn't care).
In the morning it was raining but then it cleared and it was really hot (I actually got sun burn on my back legs but it wasn't that bad and it was my fault anyway plus it was near the end of the cruise anyway) it was like the board walk at seaside (except there was no broad walk just the stores and the beach I forgot the name of the beach).
Unfortunately I had little time to draw/sketch anything or I just couldn't draw anything. I was able to draw 2 pictures but I'm not happy with them (but I will color them with water color pencils any way) I wasn't happy with anything I did and it was getting annoying it was like I wasn't able to draw something was wrong with me and I couldn't figure out what or why but then I realized something. During the cruise mom was telling everyone how proud she was of her and some of Candice's friends have done other cruises and even during the glass blowing show the glass blowers would say how long they were in school doing this ect.
I realized that I'm now 26 still in school but I still don't know what I want to do with my life and that I've done nothing really impressive with my live and I have no confidence in my abilities. I don't know why I feel this way, it's not like my family puts me down and say things like I'm wasting my time or anything (it's quite the opposite actually) even my teachers say I lack confidences and I don't know why. But in my classes I've noticed that a lot (and by a lot I mean all) of my class mates are younger then me and even my sign language is a year younger then me, A YEAR (when it gets to the point were your teachers start being younger then you. Then you know something is wrong here) I feel like I'm running out of time and I just feel like crap about myself.
And that's it. Sorry to end on a sad note
