Baby, It's Cold Outside

But at least there's no ice. The snowy winter seems at long last to be approaching an end. All day today it rained, and my mood was pretty close to the weather, for much of the morning. At work, there was nothing to do. All my classes today were lectures and remarkably boring ones. I have enough homework that I could very reasonably be up until ten o' clock.

But the hope of spring, and freedom from another year of school, is just around the corner. Finals are less than three weeks away and then it's a long summer of work and counting down the days until I visit Los Angeles again (hopefully in July.) Every spring I make a list of things that I hope to accomplish over the summertime. They're usually trivial, silly things - but they're always attainable. I want to be golden tan, the natural way (meaning, via the sun). I want to do Pilates, go on a bike ride, and go on a long walk at least once a week. I want to eat a full serving of fruit and drink the required amount of water every day. I would like to teach myself how to do a perfect French manicure. I want to sew my first quilt and do some embroidery.

They're silly enough goals, but they're summer goals. And that's what I love about them most. What do you all hope to do for summer, this year?
