A (totally great) conference last weekend followed by a complete computer freak out (now settled, thanks to the Dude) means that I’m not even caught up on what the hell is going on in the world, so I thought I’d make this week’s FFT niiiiiice and easy: what fun stuff have you got planned for the next couple of months?
I’m still operating on an academic schedule, so the summer months are typically when I get to run around and loaf and travel. I had hoped to take a big trip this summer, as a post-graduation reward, but because my employment situation is still so shabby, I can’t afford it.
But, I am going to see BroDork and his family (who are moving to the UK next month) in one of our mountainous states, and the Dude and I are planning a long weekend in Boston to see a number of friends sometime in August. And we’re talking about going to the midwest to see both families, but that’s all hypothetical at this point. Other than that, I’m going to take a couple riding lessons, and apply for jobs I almost certainly will not get, and maybe go here for a day. Nothing spectacular, but perhaps some fun.
How ’bout you? Super bonus points for recommendations of fun/cheap ways to enjoy the summer!
*or Winter, for our antipodean friends. Tell me cooling tales of ski trips and snowball fights!
