June Too Soon, AKA Not Soon Enough

April and May have been a healthy mix of the robust and the magnificent. I've spent a lot of money on clothes and chocolate muffins (I live for pleasure alone). School has continued to challenge me, and my final quarter of work at Brooks went swimmingly. On the down side, I've been a bit unmotivated about school and am worried about juggling summer classes. Oh, and I also had a nasty infection, but don't worry, it has been cleared up now thanks to an injection of liquid fire into my right buttock.

The above was taken on the second floor of Wendell Hill Hall on campus here at Central. More specifically, it was taken on the landing in the stairwell of the second floor of Wendell. After becoming acquainted with the concept of an "area of refuge" (thanks, Wikipedia), I still find this utterly amusing. Perhaps it has something to do with The Newsies ("Wait til I get you back to the r'fUUUUUUUGE!"), or perhaps it has to do with the idea of a wheelchair-bound individual being safe in a stairwell. I know there's no place I'd rather be.

Here's another gem, sent in by my brother. G is currently living in Hangzhou, and decided it would be a fun idea to run a marathon. Up the Great Wall of China. Without breakfast. Presumably this was taken during the first leg - before everyone started crawling. G will be running another marathon in November, this time in Queensland, Australia (I've never been so jealous in my entire life). It's the Solar Eclipse Marathon, so check back in here in the fall to see pictures of him running in welding goggles!

For now, Michael and I are going to hop to the shop for a chocolate muffin. On a semi unrelated note, I've decided it might be a good idea to start selling soft pretzels out of my apartment. There's no place to get them around here, and everyone likes them. It costs under $5 to make dough, which produces about 12 large soft pretzels, which I can sell for $2.50 each. I'm thinking this is a good idea. :)

I'll write again when finals are over and I have a better idea of how and when I'll be getting to Seattle. I can't wait to see our new place!
