Back to the grind
March 17, 2008
Spring break is over and classes resume today. Of course, in classic Andrea-style, I sat on the couch last night wondering if it would be a bad idea to drop out of graduate school when I have only 1 course and a thesis to complete after this semester is over. Well, we all know that’s a bad idea…which is why, today, I begrudgingly return to class. It’s that time in the semester when you just want it to be over because the lack of sleep, overly stressed eyes and brain, and complete jadedness has set in. There’s only 1 month left till summer break.
During my week off, I managed to knit a whole bunch as well as take some well missed city bicycle rides. That’s right, I believe spring has arrived in Philadelphia to stay. We replaced the pink bullhorns on my fixed gear bicycle with riser bars with pink grips.
So far I’m really digging this change. It’s allowing me to be a little more aggressive in traffic. I’m hoping that these will aid me in successfully track standing and skidding. I need to start practicing that at night with Kasy instead of wanting to settle into, in the evenings, the winter-hermitness I’m still wrapped in. After months of movie watching and couch snuggling it’s hard to escape out into the real world after work and dinner.
