I made it! 20 hours later and we finally arrived in Tampa on Saturday afternoon. It was a great drive, but I am SO glad it's over, traffic was insane and I can definitely wait until late July to do it again.
I've officially been here 30 hours and have already broken my first wine glass of the summer. Oops. Anyway, I don't intend to waste a minute, so I've already indulged in delicious mojitos, laying out by the pool and watching tons of American Horror Story with my aunt and uncle, obviously. Not to mention, my uncle is the best chef/bartender in the world so there is no lack of great food around here; I can already tell it's going to be a rad two months (even though summer classes start on Tuesday).
Tomorrow, I'm exploring Tampa on my own before summer school and my internship start.
