Things to come

Fancy shoes.
Garden Parties.
Pastel frocks.
Wide-brimmed hats.
Teapots and teacups.

...Sounds like an unbirthday to me.

Wishing of Summer

I know it's still awhile away,
but I can't keep myself from thinking about when classes and finals are finished.
I'm so excited to be able to wear dresses and sandals
And to not need a jacket everytime I leave the house.
I'm excited to take Art History in May
And to get back to working my job full time.
But what I'm absolutely most excited for
Is to be able to read.
I keep myself from my books all semester long,
Knowing I could get lost in them.
But once summer comes I am free to read whatever book I choose.

The books that are up first:
- A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens
- Are you a Jackie or a Marilyn? - Pamela Keogh
- The Age of Innocence - Edith Wharton
- Metamorphoses - Ovid
- Inferno - Dante
- What Would Audrey Do? - Pamela Keogh
- Shopaholic & Baby - Sohpie Kinsella

Ash Wednesday

Ashened palms crossed on our foreheads.
Marking our repentance and the beginning of a time of reflection, penance, and fasting.

As for me?
I'll be abstaining from purchasing any clothing or shoes
I will be avoiding juice, pop, and coffee
And I will be attending weekday mass on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the University.

What will you do to make this special time different from the rest of the year?
