My program went on a cruise together on Friday. I know most people brought dates, but I was still like "who are half of these people?!" It was really nice to see some people who I haven't seen in weeks, and the view of the Chicago skyline from the middle of Lake Michigan was amazing. I took some photos, but I'm so flaky about updating online things lately that they may have to wait. I need fewer things to do, not more.
Sometimes I'm really, really glad I don't own property. Just cleaning my apartment is enough for now, thankyouverymuch. I'm not ready yet.
I sure was pleased in September when everyone else had gone back to school and I was still enjoying my summer, but now that I won't finish this quarter for a few weeks and still have summer quarter to deal with I have lost my thrill at the U's shifted schedule. The weather is cooperating today and representing "early spring when everyone is still in school."
Um, who wants to come take notes from this pile of library books for me. Wake me up when you're done?
Oh yeah, a couple more things. j and I went to the Chicago 'green' festival yesterday. It was food free-sample insanity, but overall a bit underwhelming. Cleaning supplies, pet stuff, and bath+body products were underrepresented. We walked almost a mile indoors at a very sloooowww pace (we know this thanks to a free pedometer we got near the door).
But I found 20 bucks on the street yesterday and nobody was around to have dropped it so that was pretty awesome. I want to take that as a sign my luck is turning. I hardly feel guilty finding someone's twenty while walking around Chicago's "Mag Mile' either. They were probably using it to blow their nose. ;)
