It is possible that today will be my last first day as a student. It is a strange feeling for me, since I have been having first days of school for my entire remembered life. To mark the occasion there will need to be red lipstick, a book too heavy to be comfortably carried in my bag, a lack of sleep, and whole lot of earl grey.
So, business as usual. Whether this is your last first day too or just another Monday in January, I hope you have a list of things to look forward to from the new semester, month, year, week etc. Here is what I am pumped for this year:
1.The weather has to get somehow warmer and the days absolutely will be getting longer no matter what. Which means eventually my fitband-inspired walks will not be so shivery. Eventually. Boston will one day look like this again:
3.The new season of House of Cards will be here at the end of February. FEBRUARY I SAY. That is so much sooner than I could have ever expected or hoped for in my wildest Frank Underwood loving dreams.
4. The least realistic erotica novel ever written is coming to the big screen on Valentine’s Day. My friends and I have already claimed each other for steak and martinis at Applebee’s followed by that quality cinematic experience. So menfolk- I know you want us but sorry we are busy watching strangers getting busy.
5. Financial independence. I want it. I am striving for it. That, and an understanding of how Lipton can get away with putting “America’s Favorite Tea” on all their packaging. That’s supposed to be an insult, right?
