Same time next month, vacation?

February break has ended much too quickly.  I managed to accomplish a lot of my goals, but perhaps spent an unpractical amount of time playing Super Nintendo and watching Supernatural.  Well, it’s back to school tomorrow, so today I’d like to share some photos from my week of leisure:

1) Detailing on my new ASOS bag.  2) Little Bear Watermelons at Rosemont Yarmouth.  3) These giant piece of pizza became our lunch.  4) Superheroes at Coast City Comics.  5) There are at least two copies of Top Gun for Nintendo in this case and I need to procure one ASAP.  6)  Skee Ball action shot at Bayside Bowl.  7) Maine’s February skies.  8) A friend in my Russian Literature course has lent me this handy book that I was able to utilize a bunch over break.

I hope that I can kick my recently renewed NES/SNES habit and not let Super Mario get in the way of studying as I return to classes.  Not to mention, when I was in the comic shop buying games, I ran into a friend who works there and he informed me that they host a pinball tournament every Sunday!  I must investigate!

good morning, Monday: It’s vacation, y’alls!

“Winter break” has begun!  For some reason, instead of offering the traditional two-week long spring break that many colleges do, USM allows students a single week off in February and another in March.  This momentary reprieve from academic deadlines will provide me a chance to get ahead on assignments, visit with friends, and above all allow me an opportunity for relaxation.  I’m pretty thrilled about the week-long fun that’s about to be embarked on.

Therefore, on this Monday morning, I bring you my  “vacation edition” excerpts of mood-enhancing media.

1) Similarly to last Monday’s post, this week I’m happy to report that several more dogs were adopted through Friends of Retrievers Rescue.  How better to start the week than will stories of animal adoption?!

2) Pawnee & Leslie Knope are great.

3) Josh has an amazing Thai funk album, The Sound of Siam.  Here’s my favorite track, Mae Kha Som Tam.  I challenge you to listen to this song next time you’re walking somewhere and try to keep your stride from turning into a strut (it’s impossible!).
