I would have to say that skipping is by in large one the most underrated modes of transportation. There is really something to the carefree, rhythmic sway of a good skip. It is a shame that people shed such a negative light on the action. Granted one does look like a complete sissy when caught up in the throes of skipping so it is best to keep it a private affair. Trust me, if you find yourself in the woods on a picturesque spring day, it would be in your best interest to skip to your heart’s content. Let go!
Papers and finals have been monopolizing my schedule for the last few days. With each finished paper and each finished test comes a sense of elation; a wave of catharsis. Normally if I am feeling spiritually burdened I'll just get a haircut or throw some stuff away. Getting rid of something that you don't really want to get rid of (despite the fact that you may never use it again) is a great activity for a slow rainy afternoon. If you don't take a load off once in a while your life starts to get buried. It's best to keep things simple. Bare minimum tastes of cinnamon.
The power just went out in my building but my computer still has plenty of battery life left. Someday I want to go into the woods with a sleeping bag, a canteen, a good book, and a frying pan and experience life like Lewis & Clark. Electricity, unlike skipping, is totally overrated.
P.S - If you like podcasts and you like comedy, I would like to recommend this week’s episode of Jordan, Jesse, Go! It is a pop culture/comedy podcast brought to you by the host of The Sound of Young America, a great interview podcast and radio show featured on NPR.
