carefree, at last

all in a year's workAhh, it’s a goooood feeling to be done with one of the most challenging experiences of a lifetime, even if a certain degree of slacking made it less difficult than it could have been. In my celebratory joy at being home and casually kicking a soccer ball again, I swallowed a mosquito whole and undoubtedly received a gut full of the very pathogens that I blindly guessed at on my final exam this morning.

Summer is all about big plans, and I have them: there is a package of cookies and another of donuts, and each bears my name. The couch beckons, but one component is missing: my Xbox 360 has died again, and now it’s out of warranty. I’ll have to bite the bullet and pay to get it repaired if I hope to make my time useful. Still, the important thing is that my brain will not have to function for over two months. The sooner I can forget everything I’ve learned, the better.

I just spent several minutes searching the web for an MP3 of a song I already own, simply because it’s all the way upstairs and I’m down here comfortably watching baseball with my laptop. Honestly, I’m overwhelmed by relaxation.

It’s summertime
And the living is easy
Fish are jumping
And the cotton is high
Your daddy is rich
And your mommy’s good looking
So hush pretty baby, don’t you cry
