Spring Break is next week—technically, for me it starts at 3:01 this afternoon—and I’m trying not to be jealous that everyone else gets to take trips to exotic places and the farthest I’m likely to get is New Auburn.

So, here’s 5 Things I’m Looking Forward to for my Spring Break:

1. Taking a nap. Seriously, this one will probably happen at 3:02 today. (Ellie was up half the night because of the thunderstorms—which means I was up half the night…).

2. Finally getting caught up on all my grading. Who assigned all this stuff? Oh wait, it was me…

3. The Living Room’s Chai Hot Chocolate that I will use to bribe myself to grade papers.

4. Working on my dissertation. Yes, really. It’s not just the sleep deprivation talking—I had a great idea for it last week and haven’t had a chance to expand on it yet. (Also I will probably deserve another bribe for this…Sushi, anyone?)

5. Watching the last season of In Plain Sight, which starts tonight (10/9 central on USA!).

Happy Spring Break, everyone.
