OBX, North Carolina

It’s Wednesday. But an atypical Wednesday. I am halfway through my vacation in the Outerbanks (OBX), North Carolina. It’s about 6:26 pm. Today, I woke up a little after 8am to make breakfast for about 12 people and then spent most of the day at the beach. I once thought that I couldn’t do the beach for more than 2-3 days in a row but turns out, that isn’t the case. We (B and I and his group of friends) have been here since Saturday and each day the beach offers something different. Different views, different water temperature, different crowds, different vibes. I also have never experienced “beach house” living– wide verandas, outdoor lounge areas, outside showers and a backyard pool complete with a hot tub. It’s been new experiences all around for me. If I were at home, I would be finishing up work and heading home to figure out what’s for dinner and watch TV. I prefer this kind of week much better.

I feel like this was a much needed get-away, as I’ll be going back to work in less than a month. I’m not sure what next school year holds for me, and I’m trying not to think too much about it. My mother comes to visit next week and I’m looking forward to it. Ready to soak up what left of the summer. Here are some pictures of the week so far:

I’m excited to be putting my coloring book to some use again. Since purchasing it in January it’s been sitting in my apartment with half-completed wishes collecting dust. I’ve also started reading Issa Rae’s new(ish) bio, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. Now I’m reading two books simultaneously which is always hit or miss for me. Well, hope you’re enjoying your last week of July (the best month of all.) Gotta go enjoy the sunlight while it’s still here.

Summer baby,

-She

  1. So, I was in NC as well, and I was at this conference thing on yesterday, and I saw a girl that looked just like you! I wanted to snap a pic from afar..but I was like nooo she cut her hair so that can’t be her. It was your twin! #Life

    1. Haha! You should’ve made a new friend, (un) fortunately I was no where near a conference this past week. I do get that a lot, especially from complete strangers.

      1. Then, I got on wordpress just to tell you this. Then, I saw that you were in NC I was like oh snap it was her. Lol. Same everything. Funny, funny. I read your Name is Tracy in my head you’re she globe…lol

  2. Lol! Great detective work! Also, I’ve definitely seen Awkward black girl, that’s how I learned about Issa Rae. Actually want to revisit the series since I haven’t watched in awhile.
