Well, hey there. It seems to have been approximately forever in the blogging sphere since I’ve written…but I’m back! Even with midterms looming this week, I took my orders and am doing a blog post. You know it’s serious when Mary actually asks you to do a post. I would put up all the paltry school excuses which actually are valid, but I simply don’t have the time to list them all. And it’s not important. What is important is this: in one week I will be back in Wisconsin!
Spring break starts next Saturday, and while most college students will be heading to the beach for booze and debauchery, I will be heading home with four of my friends to (hopefully) temperatures in the upper 30s. And we’re all pumped. I do feel a bit of pity for my friends, a group of Southerners from Texas, Missouri, and South Carolina. In response to their questions about proper attire for the cold, I simply stated, “Do you KNOW how many hats, coats, gloves, scarves, and mittens we have in our house??”
I feel that I managed to offer sufficient attractions, though: beer, cheese, bonfires, wood stoves, bluffs, my family. What more could one ask for? Okay, yes a beach with pearly white sands and sun. And luckily, all my friends are optimists about the 18 hour car trip up. Me, on the other hand, would gladly like to be unconscious for all driving. Yup, please just knock me out. Oh, the sacrifices I will go through to get home!
the beautiful St. Peter’s,
and there is bound to be some ping pong.
Get ready, my friends! It’s going to be a long ride, but in the end it will all be worth it. Spring Break 2012: Wisconsin! Home.
