So this is midterms week at Columbia University, which means that many of my fellow students are holed up in the library, doing what people do in the library. Having never visited, I can only assume most of their time in that depressing hellhole is spent looking for appropriately high ledges from which to swan-dive. In fact, I am convinced that no one actually works in the library, and that it is more of a cult of suffering/procrastination. It is like Jim Jones and the People's Temple, but without all of the sweet Kool-Aid (and a lot more ChatRoullete).
The last few days have also been beautiful, with blue skies and radiant brightness. By radiant brightness, I am of course referring to the sun reflecting off my winter white legs. When wearing shorts, if I turn my knee just right, the laser beam of reflected light is strong enough to be used to perform successful Lasik surgery on Ray Charles. And he's dead.....I need to get out more.
Anyway, I was also able to ride in Central Park yesterday, and have just been downright giddy in general the last few days. A trip to UCLA to visit the school awaits on Saturday, and my brother visits on Wednesday with his delightful girlfriend Feriel. Life is awesome, and to compliment that awesomeness, here is the current Spring play-list:
1. The Heavy, "Sixteen"
I love The Heavy, and this song is about as cool as it gets.
2. Cold War Kids, "Audience"
As a friend said when I posted this on Facebook, the Cold War Kids are the perfect beach music. Definitely a catchy and fun song.
3. Passion Pit, "Sleepyhead (Live)"
Kind of hipster dance-party, but it is nearly impossible to keep your head from bobbing when this is played.
Monday: 90 minute ride with 4 mile jog and yoga
Tuesday: 90 minute ride with sprints, transition 6 mile run
