I Suck at Vacation

I’m not sure I’ve very good at vacation. Whenever I do something, I want to really get into it and try and be the best I possibly can be at it. I know I can never do that with something like, say, snorkeling. As such, I have very little interest in it.

I also like to be mentally engaged. I like to relax in short bursts, but I can’t just “relax” for a week. My brain won’t let me.

I also don’t like to be hot. So sitting on the beach really doesn’t do it for me. I get hot and I get bored. I like to go on vacation where we all sit in the shade and do figure out logic puzzles.
