The break officially begins. While I feel the slightest iota of guilt that the graphic narrative class didn't make, it goes away surprisingly quickly. I'm too burned out (charred more like) and bitter to do another mini this summer. And I refuse to max out my credit card.
The only thing standing in the way of a true break: must write a journal length essay before the 24th. I'm shooting for 15 pages. I shall do most of it from Monday to Wednesday of this coming week.
Other to-do's over the break:
Get hair redded again.
Finish reading The Human Stain, The Amber Spyglass, and The Book of Illusions.
Have at least one girls' day with Elise.
Work out like a bastard (am wearing a size smaller jean lately).
Watch movies like a bastard (Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Secretary, The Cooler, and others).
Catch up on blog reading and write something other than complete crap.
Listen to good music ("Ride" by Cary Brothers as we speak).
Catch up with Rachel (started yesterday with a long visit).
Get Gabe a tape so he can record Hugh Laurie's Inside the Actors Studio for me.
Talk to Jeff because he makes me smile.
Listening: "Soul Meets Body"....Death Cab for Cutie
Watching: Travel Channel
