Confessions of a slacker student
I am bored to the point where watching my candle's flame flicker and the steam from my tea dance through the air has become the most exciting part of my hour. I have also developed a newfound fascination with parting the split ends that are plentiful in my rarely-manicured hair.
I just got very excited by the opportunity to flip my calendar to the month of April where the picture comes from the Koksilah Ancient Forest in Shawnigan Lake. Sad fact: "Less than 1% of the original old-growth Douglas Fir trees remain on Vancouver Island."
As of now, I have consumed more cups of tea than number of slides I've reviewed for my exam tomorrow.
Somehow, the following just doesn't spark my interest:
I am listening to a playlist consisting of various artists that will be playing at the Squamish Valley Music Festival in August. Naturally, this has gotten me excited for the summer months where I can be free and fun and where I won't have to glue myself to a chair and stare at this computer screen for hours on end.
To further my excitement, I wrote a "Hopefully-Will-Do-List" for this summer:
- jump off a 20 foot cliff
- bike the Seawall from Canada Place, around Stanley Park, and to Kits beach
- spit off the Lynn Valley suspension bridge
- hike through Garibaldi Park
- attend a concert on Granville Island
- dip in Capilano River
- spend a night under the stars
- roadtrip down the Oregon Coast
- watch a baseball game in Myrtle Park
- eat a bean and a tomato grown in my backyard
- rollerblade through the Seymour Demonstration Forest
- have lunch at the Cottage Deli Cafe in Gastown
- hike the Baden Powell Trail from Deep Cove to Grouse Mountain
- watch the sunset from Dog Mountain
- slackline in Stanley Park
- canoe around Racoon Island
- attend a "Concerts in the Cove"
- explore deeper into Emerald than ever before
- picnic at Whytecliff Park
That's not all, but that's it for now. I've done enough procrastinating to make me exhausted; I'm going to bed. My alarm is set for an early hour with the hopes of doing some last-minute studying. I hope this exam tomorrow goes well. . .
