I perfected the art of procrastination at a very young age (ask my dad about helping me with a project about Samuel Gompers and John L. Lewis the Sunday at the end of Spring Break…) putting off things was something I just did. I put a lot of trust in my internal timer to know exactly how long it would take for me to complete something by the deadline.
Sure, trying to read The Scarlett Letter, An American Tragedy and The Old Man and the Sea in the span of three days may not have been the best idea I’d ever had, but at the extremely enlightened age of 16, it made some kind of weird, triumphant sense. Add an essay about “what I did over the summer” to the to-do list and you had a complete jumpstart from the lazy days of summer to academia.
Right now, we’re looking ahead to summer at Casa de Janey – our retrospective on what “we did over the summer” has yet to be written -- although here in the F-L-A, it feels like we’re already settled into at least the trapping of summer, with temperatures at July/August level and the constant hum of the air conditioner as the soundtrack. And as I get ready for the end of school for Young William, I’m doing the get-ready-for-the-season thing, picking up sunscreen and new beach towels and assessing the condition of our beach stuff.
So, Bodacious Ones, here’s a little point to ponder get the season rolling:
What do you do to get ready for summer? What says summer to you – music, food, clothes, activities, you name it…
