I have become OBSESSED with Tropicalia by DAVID's Tea. It tastes like a Pina Colada! There are huge chunks of pineapple in the tea and it smells divine. It is going to be a summer staple, thats for sure. It already has me dreaming of the beach.

I finally threw on my running shoes and grabbed my ipod today to go out for an afternoon run. After making excuses for about a week as to why I haven't started running, I finally hit the pavement. It was not an easy run, if you can even call it a run. It was more of a run for a bit, wow I have a huge cramp, time to walk for a bit, okay walk a bit longer. I should probably start running again, run for a couple of minutes, okay back to walking. Needless to say, I am WAY out of shape. Hopefully I can stick to it, and start running on more of a regular basis. And I do mean run.

I have four glorious months off from school. This fact has yet to sink in. It still feels like I should be studying for my next final or something. But as of right now, I am free. I am excited for the adventures and the warm weather that summer brings.
I want to have a relaxing, yet productive summer. I would love to feel like I actually accomplished something other then a great tan (although I have no objections to the tan).
I would really like to start running this summer. Its something that I alway try to start doing, but I never actually stick with it. I hope that I can change that this summer and learn to love running.
I hope to read something of substance. While I love my junkie novels and they are a great way to relax, and I am not going to lie they will be what I'll be reading for the next week or so at least to get out of finals mode and give my brain a much needed break. Soon however I will be in need of some intellectual stimulation and I hope to read a variety of books this summer. My list so far is mostly Jane Austin novels, as well as: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Night and A Piece of Cake.
I would love to know what's on your reading list this summer, or if you have any suggestions for me.
Hopefully I can accomplish these three goals this summer. The biggest challenge, I think, for me will be running.
