Dearest friends, it’s been awhile.
Today is rainy, chilly, and full of mother nature’s angst. I absolutely adore it. It’s the first day of Spring Break, and I have to tell you that I woke up feeling like Captain Planet. I was full of happiness and joy.
I just went to the gym and did some intermediate rowing. If you’ve never rowed, I’m wondering how you manage to live! It’s probably the most enjoyable experience a human being can ever do legally. We all know what boats are, right? They’re those floaty things. So you get in a floaty thing, and you bring a paddle. Then you paddle in the water. It’s simple. It’s hard. It’s winning.
To comment on today’s rain, I will mention that I recently went to Seattle for a Phi Theta Kappa conference. I wrote a bunch of blogs about Seattle, but they’re mostly just me gushing over the rain. It’s so beautiful there! Much like today, it rains and rains and rains. Everyone there is so calm and relaxed. Even the homeless people speak articulately and with respect! I’d recommend visiting there at the very least. It’s probably the calmest, dreariest place on earth. I love me some dreary.
Hmm, let’s see. What else can I say? Oh yea. Am I the only one who was disappointed with the ungodly lateness of Spring Break this year? Spring Break ought to occur in the middle of the semester. I know. I know. We always pair it with Easter because we love to be efficient, but I respectfully protest that pairing if Easter happens to coincide with the End of Time! I would kindly like to call this, as my generation points it, a huge fail.
Anyway, now that Spring Break is here, guess what I’m doing? I’M SLEEPING! I’ve forgotten how good it is to just lay in bed and not get out. When I woke up this morning, my sheets were so tightly wrapped around me that I felt like a burrito. I was a burrito of warmth and comfort.
To bid thee farewell, I’d like to give a shoutout to all my wonderful friends in Pine Ridge for the Alternative Spring Break! I’m sure you’re all having a lovely time! I’ll be enjoying gratuitous amounts of rest and relaxation in your honor! Yea, I just did three sentences in a row that ended in exclamation points. I’m that excited!
