After much contemplation, tonight, I finally did it.

I just spent 90% of my tax return on a volunteer vacation to Jamaica.

I'll be gone June 14 to the 28th, two weeks. I'll be living and working in Mt. Vernon, doing "light" construction (read: paint) and helping with a kid's day camp.

This is a huge thing for me. Yes, that money could've paid down debt. Yes, I could've made upgrades to my condo.

But, I wanted to live brave. I wanted to take risks.

So here I go.

I am so, so, so excited.
