So today was my last official day of summer break. Yes, I still have this weekend, but it's just not the same. Monday morning starts a whole two months of 8:00 classes and labs. I am NOT looking forward to it. But, it's probably a good thing that I will be getting some structure in my life because I have been extremely lazy the past month. But I did get to read a few books and catch up on sleep. I did not get to live at the pool like I thought I would though. Oh well, there's always weekend right? :)
Tonight we have plans to go out for my friend Catherine's birthday. It should be a fun night of catching up with all of our college friends. Tomorrow, Gabe and I are going to Little Rock for lunch and to do a little shopping for him. I like shopping for Gabe almost as much as I like shopping for myself. Then Sunday, weather permitting, I can hopefully get some pool time in before the dreaded Monday morning.
Totally switching topics, I was so upset to hear that the oil is starting to wash up on the beaches in Gulf Shores, AL. For most of my life my family has vacationed there every summer. I feel like those beaches are a second home to me. We've been through hurricanes and tropical storms together and always come out alright. But this oil disaster is something totally different. It may be years before things are back to normal. I can't help but get depressed when I think about all of the birds, fish, dolphins, and other sea life that are affected by this. I feel so helpless in this situation. And I am absolutely furious at BP for not doing more.
Anyway, sorry to end on such a depressing note. I hope all of ya'll have a great weekend!
