Schoooooooool's Out for Summer!

Yes! The last class of the quarter ended at 5:30 this evening, several hours afterward were spent in the local bar drinking copious quantities of fluids (I had lemonaide, but beer was the usual beverage of choice).

Now I'm back home, looking forward to Summer Break for the first time since 1980 (I was going to say 1981, since that's the last time I was in college, but I graduated that year, so it wasn't summer break).

Plans for the summer:
- Continue to haphazardly look for a full time job, but don't stress about it because I still have another year of grad school to go, and few firms are looking to take on someone who will need two days off every three weeks.
- Draw! Being immersed in reading webcomics has dramatically demonstrated what a difference drawing something new every day will make. I'm gonna do that too! And once I acquire a scanner I'll put them up somewhere for general scoffing.
- Launch a local guidebook project that I've been fooling around with for the last couple of years. I was unwilling to dedicate the time it will require since, while I'm pretty sure I have rigged it to pay its own way, it is not likely to be a big money maker. But the grad school program wants us to do a major personal business project next year, and I figured I'd rather do the heavy lifting for that while I'm not frantically struggling to keep up with classes as well.
- Sand and paint the scraped part of my lovely little Miata. I've never done anything like that, and am more than a little nervous about trying, but it must be fixed, and I can't afford to have the pros do it.
- Sleep past 6:00 am!
- Clean the House! Much has been neglected in the jam-packed months of school. Time to fix that.
- Post to LJ, check in on FaceBook, maybe even Twitter! Because I Can.

  • Wow, has it really been two years since I posted here?!?

    I know I haven't done as much with social media as I used to - and what time I do spend on it is mostly cruising FaceBook and Tumblr, but I had NO…

  • A weird night and an unsettled morning

    Generally, my sleep pattern is delightfully boring: I get tired around 10 PM, will sometimes read or cruise the 'net until no later than 11, and fall…
