Summer's End

As summer draws to a close, I find myself eager to get back to school. I think the idea that I will be done in two semesters makes me wish it was over. With the light visible at the end of what has been a very long, but very worthwhile tunnel, I just want to keep moving. Speaking of wishing, this picture just sums up my dream of traveling and hitting the open road. I love the idea of experiencing life in more than one place. I don't understand people who are content to just stay in one place all of the time. Of course, in addition to the camper, I want one of these to scoot around on.

I have been doing a last minute rush of reading in order to get in some more fun before it becomes textbooks, textbooks, textbooks all of the time. I read my first Jodi Picoult and I really loved it. She is a much better writer than I thought she would be (breaking my whole "if so many people are reading it, it must be crap" rule see: James Patterson, Nora Roberts, Danielle Steel, etc. I put Picoult in the same league as Alice Hoffman and Anne Tyler. I have also been listening to The Lightyears, a British group that I found through a friend. They will be in the Philly area in September if anyone is interested.

I wanted to share a great website I love that is about saving money and so much more: It is rather fun to check in on everyday.
