Half way there! – Spring break

Half way through the semester and still feeling good about things! I had only a couple of small plans to do over spring break. After the plans I would be back at USF early to get back to work and start getting ahead on all of my class readings. 

The first few days of Spring break I took a car ride to Santa Cruz and stayed with my great aunt who has a house in the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains. I always forget how nice it is around her house and her backyard backs up to the forest, which is very private and relaxing. Yet she is only a 10-15 minute car ride down to the boardwalk! I haven’t seen her in a long time and it was great to see how she was doing and share with her what I have been up to at school. She was kind enough to give to me some vintage mopeds, which look like they will be my summer fix-up project! I am excited to start working on them and can’t wait till I can start riding them. The vintage look of the paint and the overall body of the mopeds just look great! They are both Puch Maxi Sports from 1977, they are considered the “Volkswagen” of scooters because they were made in large quantities and they are very easy to find parts for and fix. So, I look forward to my summer project it should be a lot of fun.

The other part of my break I spent a few days back in Rocklin at home and spent some quality down time. I came back to the city in the middle of the week to get back to work and start my reading for the next week. I’m looking forward to finishing up this very busy year, but I know there is still much work to be done!
