sound of settling

ahhhh. feel that? it's the sound of summer, slowly settling, surrounding us.

I think my inner psyche needs to realize that it IS summer. I still have this pressure inside of me-go to work, work on a project prepare a presentation. I'm still in my semester mode. I even feel guilty beginning this potentially lengthy blog entry. My instinct is to keep going-work, class, SUA, study. I need to rev down.

It's not just an unusual hot spring day. It's not just a weekend with no pressing projects to work on or no tests to study for. It's just summer.

Hopefully, this weekend-with only graduation celebrations to attend and friends to enjoy time with-I will realize I CAN relax. I can start watching the episodes of "Lost" I have so kindly been supplied with. I'm sure a healthy obsession will ensue...

(Programming note-I'm watching the CBS Evening News and they just did a story about this elephant "farm" (I guess?) in central Florida. It's adorable. I've decided I LOVE elephants. :)

I think the summer must have been lurking in western Kansas the past week. It let the majority of KU students finish finals and prepare for graduation. Today is the first, unofficial, day of summer. The sun is shining, the trees are green, the temps are HOT. I drove home late this afternoon with the air on and the cotton from trees floating past my car in the humid air.

I am going to relax now. Or at least TRY to. I might also have to do laundry and clean my room...
