Excited about: the fact that my first semester of graduate school is over. I have just a few weeks to get in as much reading for pleasure as I can before my second semester starts. I don't have grades for the first semester yet but I'm pretty sure they were good. One semester down, 5 to go!
Eating: salad. I used to eat salad almost everyday for lunch and then, for some unknown reason, I stopped. I've been getting back into making salads again and I feel so much healthier.
Watching: I just finished watching the final season of Weeds last week. I started with season 1 about a month ago. I really enjoyed watching it. The episodes are just 30 minutes long so you can watch a lot of them in a row. And they are pretty hilarious. Now that I'm all done with it, I need to find a new show to watch! Any suggestions???
Listening to: Matt made a Russian Circles Pandora station, which I have been listening to lately. For those of you that don't know, Russian Circles is a three piece instrumental heavy metal band from Chicago. I love loud, angry rock music (especially when I am driving) but I don't listen to it a lot because I generally can't put up with the screaming that generally goes along with it. I was super excited when we came across Russian Circles (they opened for Coheed and Cambria when we saw them in February) because I get all the heavy rock but don't have to put up with any lyrics!
Looking forward to: my birthday party. My birthday is on the first of June. Every year since we have been at our current apartment Matt and I have thrown a birthday party. A bunch of friends come over, hang out in our yard, barbecue and enjoy drinks. It's pretty awesome. Because it's at the beginning of June it's the perfect way to kick off the summer!
Making me happy: It's bike season! Last night after work Matt and I went for a nice leisurely bike ride. We rode down to confluence park and lounged in the grass. And I took some fun photos using the new A Beautiful Mess photo app. After hanging out in the park for a little while we rode into downtown and tried a new taqueria. We will definitely be going back! After some tacos we rode home. It was wonderful evening and hopefully we will be spending a lot of the summer doing exactly the same thing!
So, what about you? What have you been up to lately?
