Aaaah, today was awesome.  First I had marine ecology, which was out on the boat and we collected sandy sediment core samples, so we can compare infauna between sandy and muddy substrates.  And then we jumped in the water for a swim.  The only bad thing is I got stung my a Man-of-War on my arm and neck, and it left some pretty impressive welts, but it's all good, because it stopped hurting after an hour, and the welts have gone down.  After lab, some girls from class and I headed to Maui Tacos for lunch and we hit up Makapu'u.  Normally that beach terrifies me because of the big waves, but I went in with Marcene and it was really helpful to be with someone else.  I just need the reassurance when I see this huge wave face, that it'll be ok, and you just need to go under the wave.  It was a big adrenaline rush before we needed to skip off to class.  Hoh, three hours of lecture...I don't know how I handled 7:30-3:00 days in high school.  It is so hard to focus, and plus the sun really drained me.  But days like these really cement my love for the "island" life and hopefully I'll be able to get as much beach as possible before the semester really starts getting busy.  I'm so excited! Two more semesters! JEAH!

I am SO jealous of you right now! Your college experience is so much awesomer than mine was. :D

But I'm not jealous of yor man of war stings! I'm glad you're okay and that it didn't eat you for dinner.
