â€śSummertime and the livin' is easy.â€?
These lyrics from the musical Porgy and Bess seem surprisingly fitting with how my summer is going so far. While I still have not managed to get any sign of a tan, I have enjoyed playing Frisbee outside almost daily. In the fall I might even tryout my skills and join one of the many pickup games of Ultimate Frisbee that happen so frequently in the Mall Area between Northrop Auditorium and Coffman Union.
On days when the sun is too hot to toss a Frisbee around, I find myself inclined to curl up and read. Iâ€™ve been rereading old favorites and discovering new ones. I have also been getting a head start on reading the novels required for the Womenâ€™s Contemporary Fiction course Iâ€™ll be taking in July. I am really looking forward to this course and to discussing the contents of the novels with the other 22 people in the class. Plus the class meets at a time that works perfectly with my job so I can still earn money to pay rent on my new apartment! Ahhh, life is good.
