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 here I sit, debating fantasies.

I want a cold, crisp winter night's walk filled with snow falling silently and a cuddle with a lovely person under a big cosy blanket, a roaring fireplace, and a steaming mug of sweet hot chocolate.

But I also want a chair on a warm, sandy, isolated beach on the South Pacific, well equipped with chick lit and a pitcher or some fruity, but deceptively strong, drink on a cute little table next to me. And I want to be there alone.

One is doable; the other, not so much. Sigh. I wish it could just be Christmas break already. Or at least not this week.

I've been on this big Christmas kick lately. I can't wait to sit around sipping eggnog, visiting with family and friends, baking all sorts of Christmas goodies, watching movies, my sled date with Rebecca, shopping for gifts, snacking on clementines and chocolate, snuggling up in big chunky sweaters, playing video games with the Tomster, updating and improving my food blog, sending christmas cards, frenchys shopping, snarking at lame TV shows, going to Christmas concerts, decorating the tree, my birthday partying (which I hope will involve Rebecca, Erin, Jenn, Dana, Stacey, Ames, dancing, and a big-ass pitcher of sangria), getting used to my new Mac (I hope), planning my vacation, family dinner parties, practising photography, walks in the countryside and forests around my grandparent's houses, dancing to Christmas music randomly with my mom in the kitchen, and, of course, snow. DANG. C'mon, December! Hurry up!
