It's life...comparatively

So I haven't died or anything. Just took a break. Now, though, I'd like to share some of my break, and my first day back--comparatively.

Typical 10 of a day on break.
10. Wake up. Around ten or so.
9. Eat something high in calorie count, and generally chocolate-related.
8. Read something. Finish For Whom the Bell Tolls between girl power novels.
7. Clean something, you slob. That mountain of unwashed linen will fall eventually.
6. Watch something--practically anything with a plot. Wildfire, Judging Amy, Amelie or any film noir will work.
5. Okay, I've run out of things I did....maybe I should go back to school now.

Back to SHU. The unpredictable is norm.
10. Jabber endlessly about plans, because you really don't have anything going on yet.
9. Listen with a blank, stern expression. Impending doom. The sting of syllabi. Take it like a woman!
8. Stealthily slink to the bookstore. Steal book ISBN numbers for online pillaging. (No stealing actually occurred. I'm just a bargain hunter.)
7. Hike up a stair mountain. You've taken more steps today than you have the entirety of break.
6. Fight with an umbrella. It's pretty, but it doesn't seem to want to close. "Don't put me away; I'm blue, and I like showing it."
5. Conceal laughter by placing hand over mouth. Is it unprofessional to howl in class?
4. Smile to have a place to be and things to do.
3. Run four yellow lights on my way to school--okay, and maybe one red.
2. What am I doing blogging? I have homework to do. Okay, I have time to finish this.
1. Laugh for no reason, but with so many reasons. I have class with so many friends from freshman year. It's great we are finally reuniting in the upper-level courses. I can't wait to see what happens.

When do you ever do work? I always see you roaming some random hall or out on the porch.

Not roaming, just jetting to some quiet corner of the world to work--like home. And as for the porch, that's a nice little solitude.

It is great to finally have another class with you... After such a long time of trying to meet up for lunch or outside of school, it is wonderful to see you in "real-life."

And howling in class? Erm, stick to giggles till the prof can expect it? That's my advice... I've been known for my unruly laughter at times. Can't help it when everyone else is laughing, too.

Howl away. Laughter is contagious.
