I'm stealing a list-type format from <ljuser=haikujaguar>: it's so lovely and seems to be an almost serene approach.

Comic: I've been playing around with this idea in my head for a few days now and I kinda like it, but I have my doubts and I have to do a bunch of research before I can even attempt writing this thing. It'll have to just sort of float around in my brain while I work on school stuff for the next few weeks.

Cooking: Here are a few recipes I've been wanting to make... these might have to wait, too. Sigh.
Pioneer Woman's  "Most Favorite Burger... for Now" (I am on a huge burger kick since I went to a Johnny Rocket's in Providence this summer and had the best burger of my life. Now I go around trying to find something, anything, that even comes close...)
Pithy and Cleaver's Black Forest Cookies (Chocolate, more chocolate, additional chocolate, and cherries. I might need to make these as stress relief...)

Fitness: Spring is taking forever to get here and I'm starting to feel really out of shape. Until it's consistently sunny (which, really, will be in like May, since early spring here  = rain) I've got either depressing gym or my apartment. Perhaps an aggressive cleaning, maybe some pilates? Any advice, guys?

Friends: Now is pretty much the worst time of year to be hanging out with friends, but one of my friends has dropped out for the rest of the term and she's going back home to stay with her parents for the summer. I feel a need to

School: I went to a dinner with my fellow students last night and absolutely everybody is stressed over schoolwork. The girl sitting across from me was working on finalizing the rough draft of her thesis, and everybody had papers and presentations and exams to study for... it just frayed my nerves a bit. Thankfully, though, I realised I can write one less paper if I go to a concert this Wednesday night, which is a huge plus. $15 concert vs. 2000 word paper? Works for me!

Work: Holy COW it's full in here today! You can tell it's the end-of-term crunch afoot. Usually I'll work my 4-hour Monday shift and get maybe 5 or 6 people... there were 5 people in here earlier at the same time! No more nose-picking for me...


And that's probably more than you needed to know about the brain of Meg... Anyway, time to make a happy playlist.

So, this summer I have learned to fully embrace my "list person" tendencies as a result of a summer job requiring many such lists, and so I present what little is happening in my life in the form of, of course, a list:

- I bought a new Mac, which has resulted in me becoming very, very broke. I've never had to live paycheque-to-paycheque before, and I can safely say that I do not like it at all. However, my Mac is serving me very well at work, and I managed to get my boss' copy of Office for Mac for free without even asking, which was a masterpiece of manipulation on my part. ;) I have named my Mac Squishy and she is about a million times awesomer than the old craptop ever was. Too bad she and Mr. Pod (my free {!} iPod) aren't getting along well. :P

- My little brother bought a copy of Guitar Hero 2, and he and I have become obsessed with spending our spare time in the basement fighting for the controller. Tom is, as always, about 100 times better than me, but I've improved pretty significantly over the past few days, so I'm quite happy. It's even turned me into the fan of (gasp!) an Iron Maiden song.

- I had a fantastic time with a random assortment of friends last night. I decided to invite not a specific group of people but cool individuals from high school that I figured would get along. I was amazed at the connectons that I hadn't foreseen - the first two to arrive already knew each other, and two others had even been teammates for a local curling team. Even though it was mostly girls, estrogen didn't run high like it can when you get a bunch of girls. I take this as evidence that I have good taste in friends.

- The Tour de France ended today, and even though the guy I wanted to win ended up in second place, I can't begrudge Alberto Contador his win. It was his first Tour, after all, and he whupped his asshole teammate Levi Leipheimer's butt, which made me smile.
