Okay, so it’s been forever since I’ve been in the blogosphere.  

Life is good, and I am well into spring semester here at Denison.  Things have been so much more relaxed, academically speaking, than last semester.  I’m taking advantage of the lighter course load and trying to work ahead this week because I am going HOME this weekend!  I am so excited to see my family, and I want to enjoy my time with them and not feel guilty about unfinished school work.  It’s Sunday night, and all of my Monday work is done, so I’m heading into Tuesday’s stuff.  Helllloooo productivity!

"There’s no place like home for the holidays,
Cause no matter how far away you roam—
If you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze—
For the holidays, you can’t beat home sweet home."

—Going home for Christmas tomorrow—I cannot wait!

"The doors were cedar
and the panels strips of gold
and the girls were golden girls
and the panels read and the girls chanted:
We are the greatest city,
the greatest nation:
nothing like us ever was.

The doors are twisted on broken hinges.
Sheets of rain swish through on the wind
where the golden girls ran and the panels read:
We are the greatest city,
the greatest nation
nothing like us ever was."

—From “Four Preludes on Playthings of the Wind” by Carl Sandburg

"Not yesterday I learned to know
The love of bare November days
Before the coming of the snow.
But it were vain to tell her so,
And they are better for her praise."

—From “My November Guest” by Robert Frost

It is amazing how a twenty minute nap can change your outlook on a whole day (for the better)

I am convinced that the song “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” should have been written about Denison in the fall.  I basically live on the most beautiful campus ever.
