Race is not even the correct term for the last few weeks of school… dead sprint may be a more accurate metaphor. Papers, finals, presentations, interviews, and work have this little engine all tuckered out. You would think that after 3 plus years of college I would have learned that I should really start on papers, projects, etc… earlier than the night before, yet here I sit with a ton of stuff to do when I had more than enough free time over Easter break to be productive. Instead, I played golf. Yes ladies and gentlemen it turns out golf is my kryptonite. Despite having all that free time, I still crave more and the thought of having to do all the work that I need to is enough to make me contemplate dropping out, moving to Australia and becoming a total beach bum for the rest of my days. The only thing that keeps me going is the prospect that summer is literally right around the corner. Thus, I have decided to list for all the fine people in blogland my favorite things about summer. The lake, the pool, no school, the smell of freshly cut grass, shorts, boating, skiing, tubing, flip flops, longer days, grill outs, fire works, fishing, golfing, and baseball. These are just to name a few. I won’t bore you with the entire list. It is quite extensive. But, alas, all these must wait until the end of finals…. and that sweet taste of freedom.
Today’s song is brought to you by my roommates late night paper topic of musicals. He argued that O Brother Where Art Thou is not only a folk musical, but one of the greatest folk musicals of our time. I am in complete and utter agreement with his assessment.
