A little mini glee for the morning:

Three Things That Are Good About Today (So Far)

1. The "Quantum of Solace" picture that Andrew's dad sent me is hanging up on my wall near the computer. Nothing like the sight of Daniel Craig holding automatic weaponry to make my morning. Andrew says I am allowed to cheat on him with Daniel Craig, should the luscious Mr. Craig ever become available to me. A girl can dream, right?

2. Instead of getting up to 90, the forecast now says it'll only be 87. Maybe air conditioner season is nearly over?

3. I have a buttload of new books to read. YAY!

earthbelow: (get fuzzy)
I'm back from my birthday/vacation trip and I have to say, I don't even miss one tiny thing about my internship. I'd miss the money if I'd made any, but they barely paid me enough to cover the cost of subway fare and lunch, so screw that. All I remember about my last day was going down the stairs and tingling with joy and barely being able to breathe because I was finally free. I ran down the street until I got to the subway, because I was afraid someone would call me back and tell me to work on something else.

I'll never have to do that again. It's over.

I've already set out plenty of goals for myself while I have free time. Writing and exercising and cleaning and other such things.

I'm going to make the most of not having to be a wage slave for a little while.
