MEIDENBAUER | Planning For Joy

It’s that time in the semester when everyone seems to constantly be busy with ever-present exams and assignment deadlines looming. The fact that the weather won’t make up its mind yet isn’t helping. The beautiful warm days are almost a curse when followed by snow, or even worse, rain. It’s like Mother Nature’s teasing us, but right now it feels almost cruel.  

I’ve been determined to make the most of this, despite the weather, by spending as much time outside as possible. I typically do this by not planning the day outside of classes, letting spontaneity dictate a schedule instead.
