dr. quint vs. the summer.

I'm working on my very last paper.
My exams are all done, I made it through with a great deal of coffee, chocolate, and tears. In the end, I'm dehydrated but relieved.

I have to say, I've really noticed a huge toll this past year has taken on me physically. I've been tired, undernourished and overworked for weeks on end. Way too stressed, very little down time, and I'm really feeling the effects. I've got a wicked temper these days, and that's saying something.
There's been something grinding in my shoulder for the past few weeks, my gums are red, my hands are dry, my eyes are sore. I need a couple days in the sun.

That being said, this Saturday Matt and I are moving into our

We're on the top floor in the back. It's an old building, wood floors, weird angles, tons of light, loads of character. I couldn't be more excited, nervous. I'll show you the inside as soon as I get a camera.
The beat-up building next door, above the bookstore, is an old theatre. Yeah. I can't really explain how awesome Sackville is. Most of the time, anyway.

Those shots are misleading in the fact that they look so urban. You have to realize that this apartment sits on the main intersection of Sackville. Downtown is a two-street, blink-and-you-miss-it affair. We're in the heart of downtown Sackville.

I think it's going to be a wonderful summer. The logistics are still hazy, mostly because of money. Matt still doesn't have a job. I'm taking a spring session course that I can't pay for yet. We don't exactly have first month's rent yet. But we'll get it worked out, because we have no choice. I'm optimistic.

My Dad is bringing me back my bike, with a brand new basket attached so as to ferry books from the library, dinner to the lake, etc. I can't wait for summer to get here.

It'll be here officially when I finish this paper. Only 3000 words between us.

There was talk of fixing up that old theater and using it for... theatrical stuff, I guess. This was awhile ago, but I thought some of the Mt. A drama people got a bee in their bonnet about it. Which would be very awesome indeed.

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good. Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.
