Winters should be for hibernation.

That’s how I feel right now. I happened to get the night off from work, and instead of being productive, I have been sitting in bed with my PJs on and with a cup of tea and my laptop close at hand. I feel so peaceful—sleepy, but peaceful.
The inner debate between taking 3 classes or 4 classes next semester still rages on, but at the moment I am once again settling on 3. There are so many fun ambitions I have lined up for myself, like doing one last recital (I haven’t forgotten about that yet), running NYC again and hopefully qualifying for Boston (if I can shave 40 minutes off my time with a respectable amount of training), and maybe San Francisco while I’m here and enjoying it… as well as ploughing through this awesome vegetarian cookbook that I ordered off of Amazon. Deborah Madison, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. Someday I will be a full-fledged vegetarian and I won’t miss meat at all. That’s the goal.
My current excuse for not diving into all of these things right away is this minor cold that I’ve caught for the holiday weekend, as well as the crunch of semester-end assignments that need dealing with. Then I’ll probably let myself be as lazy as I dare for a whole three days before I make myself start being responsible again. Yes, I think that is a good plan.
My boyfriend will be traveling in West Africa until the very end of January, starting tomorrow. It’s reason for a slight little bit of pouty-ness on my part because two months is a long time, but I’ll use it as an opportunity for good-quality personal time. Time to unwind quietly from the pressures of Fall semester, just as I’ll be resurrecting my running routine from NYC earlier this month.
