Started: Room Clean Out

… and three small surprises. :)

One of the things in my summer to-do list is to clean out my side of the room that I share with my Nana. Even though I have been off from school for almost two months now, I haven’t quite gotten around to doing it because I’m always more interested in doing something other than cleaning my room.

Today, I decided I would finally start cleaning our room (Read: This is probably it unless I feel otherwise.). I mean, cmon, what’s a better way to celebrate freedom (Happy 4th!) than to be free from eyesores? I took some (very embarrassing) pictures of the problem areas in the room just so you can have a solid idea of what we’re dealing with here.



Started: Apartment Hunting in Athens

I felt that since today was the first day of July, it would be the best day to officially start looking for an apartment in Athens. I am thankful that the internet has caught on for real estate because now 50% of the work is sitting in front of a computer screen and clicking away half-mindlessly (as per usual). This post is going to be about the other 50% with which the internet (for all its infinite magic) will not be able to help me.


Done: Coney Island

Monday is my least favorite day of the week because it follows my long-work hours at DD. I am usually too exhausted to do anything, but today I forced myself out of the house to cross one thing off my summer to-do list.

The weather today was perfect for visiting Coney Island.


My Summer To-Do List

Even though I’ve been out of school for more than a month now, my summer hasn’t officially begun. You’re going to laugh, but because Doctor Flash was only in NJ for a month, I had to put most of my life on hold. A month goes by fast, if you are not careful, and because I expect he will not be back until the middle of December, I was going to make each day he was here count.

He left today *cries* which means that my summer is officially open. This summer is particularly important for me because it is my last as a mostly-in-NJ resident and my first as a graduate student. I don’t know how much of a life I am going to have once the fall quarter begins, so here are a few things I hope to do before the summer is over.
