I am spending spring break on a beach in Mexico with a dozen friends. The animal house college spring break isn’t necessarily my scene, but I couldn’t ignore the small part of me that wanted to take part — at least for a few days. Last night I checked my phone after a few focused hours at Mann (they’re hard to come by these days), and found three missed calls from my mom. Oh no.
Friday is Feb. 1. This weekend some groundhog will poke his head out and run right back into his hole, given the cheek-numbing, snot-freezing, I-can’t-possibly-not-take-the-bus-to-class cold we’ve been enduring the last few weeks. In the meantime, it’s now one month since you may have resolved to improve yourself in 2013.
