so this is the new year

I'm back at Calvin and very happy to be here. I had a great break, but it feels good to come home to my own bed and see all my stuff and sit on my own futon watching my own movies.

So far, I love my class. It's called Art: A Reflection of Culture, and I love it. Basically, we read ten pages a day, watch movies every other day, and discuss what we read and watch. My professor is pretty awesome, too. I'm really looking forward to the rest of January. It's great to not hate getting up at the crack of dawn (except that in the winter, it's before dawn) because I'm going somewhere I want to be. Our first movie we watched was The Constant Gardener, which was an excellent film. The point to this diatribe? Interim is awesome.

And last but not least, I'm doing a pretty good job of keeping my new year's resolutions. I worked out yesterday and I'm going back to the gym later today. And I haven't eaten dessert since I came back to Calvin (I only get to eat dessert on weekends . . . hopefully it will work). Plus, I'm getting back into recreational reading.

Life is good.

At first glance I thought you said you were going to be getting back into recreational eating. This struck me as a hilarious new years resolution.

hilarious, but very doable... especially for some of the Baileys
