An Update on Summer Life

It’s been way too long since I last posted here. So here it goes. A simple update.

Summer’s been good: relaxing, easy, and, for the most part, rather unproductive. I’m trying to embrace the lack of productivity though, because I know that when I go back to school in September, I will be swarmed with more work than I have time for, and will inevitably have to choose between school, a social life, and sleep. Clearly the latter will be sacrificed first. Just kidding. Sort of.

I’m currently taking a class at the university which, although has yet to become challenging, gets me thinking about math and hopefully, it will prevent my brain from turning into unresuscitable mush. I’m trying to restart my daily word quota writing regimen after a two-and-a-half-week-long hiatus, and if all goes well, I’ll have a draft of a short story done by the end of August. I’m picking up the violin again after a rather long break (which was necessary due to an unfortunate bout of back pain) and will be learning the Sibelius Violin Concerto. As for progress on my extensive summer reading list, I am still slowly working my way through David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest and am about to embark on a journey through Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night with a couple good friends. It should be fun, and I’m excited to get some more Shakespeare in my system.

It’s nice being back home, where I spend time with family and old friends. And of course, I love being next to the mountains again.

i love these mountains
