It's been awhile.

I cannot believe that tomorrow is April. It seems like it was just Christmas. This year has flown so far.

There is nothing quite like the first afternoon of Spring Break. Unlike many other parts of the country, Maryland was sunny and 70 degrees when I got out of work. I have spent an entire night doing nothing at all, which is an accomplishment in and of itself. Between classes, grading, and planning, it's been hard to just relax. I have lecture tomorrow night and then I'm flying home to soggy Massachusetts for a week. It'll be nice to see my family and friends. I miss them!

For now, I am going to have a glass of wine, take a hot shower, and contemplate watching a movie.

five senses friday

This week:

Hearing: Mix CDs in the car
Seeing: An earlier sunrise, which makes the ride to work even more enjoyable 
Tasting: Tapas and sangria on Monday in Bethesda
Feeling: Strength in my arms after days of push-ups
Smelling: Cinnamon exercise on synesthesia today in class

This week was pretty bad, honestly. Just a fact. Work, school, everything. I'm glad that I'll be moving on. The stress is still here but I'm trying to manage it. 

Anatomical drawings by Da Vinci...I'm memorizing the skeletal system this week.
