I just love summertime.
It's made for me. I think my body's natural habitat is some desert with a nice clear lake nearby. I love the hot, dry air, and so does my skin. Basically, Lake Powell is where I belong (or similar places).
Last summer I took classes at the U, trying to accelerate my acceptance into the major (which did help). However, after going to school constantly for over a year and a half, I decided that this summer I would not take summer classes and try to enjoy it as much as I can. I've been looking forward to being out of school now for a year, so I can enjoy summer.
Two problems: 1. It's not really summer-typical weather right now. It feels more like March in May! However, that's not the main problem. 2. I don't have any structure to my life! I have all these awesome plans of things to do, but then I end up not doing them. I was worried that I might fall into this pattern. It's hard because I'm working at nights, so I don't get to hang out with people (who mostly work during the day), and during the day, there's only so much that sounds fun to do by yourself! I also have an expensive car repair coming up, so I don't want to be spending tons of money on anything.
So, I need to figure out some way to be more productive that will keep me going on a good, healthy schedule. I think I'll start going up to the research lab almost every day for a few hours. I don't like feeling lazy.
