Monday’s Musings.

7 May

Another Monday has rolled around, but I don’t get the regular dread that comes with the beginning a new week or school because it’s summer vacation for me. Woohoo! Therefore, since I don’t have class to go to, here’s how I’m spending my Monday.

  • Reading The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver. I started it on Friday, and even though I haven’t gotten much reading done since I’ve been spending time with my friend, Malia, in Asheville, it’s a really great read so far. I’ve heard from numerous people how great of a writer Barbara Kingsolver is, so I figured since it’s summer and I’ve got time to pleasure read, I’d give her a shot. So far, I’m hooked!
  • Passing time with Pandora. For those of you who don’t know, Pandora Radio is free online radio station where you can create your own stations by searching for an artist or a song and then Pandora will play other artists/songs that are similar to what you searched. It’s a really great concept, and there are only short commercials every so often, so it’s mostly music. It’s a great thing to have playing when you’re doing other things, but if you love music like me, you can just sit and listen.
  • Dreaming of Ireland. This is pretty much a constant these days. According to the countdown I have on my computer, I leave for Ireland in 43 days. It truly feels unreal. I am so, so excited, and I can’t wait to have the experience of a lifetime. Granted, I’m pretty nervous since I’ll be studying at NUI Galway with API (Academic Programs International), and I don’t know anyone else who is going. However, I make friends pretty easily, so I’m sure I’ll be fine once I’m there and all settled in.
  • Going out to dinner for Malia’s birthday. It’s my best friend, Malia’s, birthday today. Sadly, Malia is babysitting for most of the day so I’m not spending time with her now. However, later tonight Malia, Becca, Rabia, Ivy, and I are going out to dinner for Malia’s birthday. I’m not sure where we are going out to dinner, but the great thing about Asheville is there are so many restaurants to choose from, and they’re all really yummy, so it’ll be a great night either way!

How are you spending your Monday?

    I had a long walk this morning to keep the palsy at bay and try to lose some weight. Now I must decide what the subject of my next art piece will be. Have fun tonight!

    Trust you had a great dinner! Love The Bean Trees. And Pandora’s just the best, isn’t it? 😉

      The birthday dinner was a lot of fun. And I’m really enjoying The Bean Trees. I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately so I haven’t been able to read it as much, but I’m hoping to finish it this week. And yes, Pandora is the best, and it’s such a great way to discover new artists! 🙂

    Exciting! Happy holidays and enjoy Ireland in a few months. You will meet tons of people – travelling just does that to us 🙂
