inessential thoughts on weather

i love it when we have nice days here. i am such a wuss that the cold and rain really gets to me, makes me depressed, not wanting to go to class or do anything else. now, i like my rainy days for sure, but when i’m inside reading, with no obligations to the outside world. and you might think it odd that i feel that way when i’m here. “you’re in california! there’s no where better to be!” this is quite possibly true. however, it still gets a little too cold for my liking in winter quarter. the past few days have been great, though–i’m no judge of temperature but i’d say highs in the 60s or maybe even low 70s.

one thing i wish though, is that my room was on the other side of the dorm. well, not really–you don’t have a view of anything from that side. so instead i wish that out of my window i looked east. i love sunrises. and i love to see the light change throughout the day. but since my room is in a fairly shaded area, in a little corner of the dorm, the room is never bright and filled with light. maybe in the summer when the sun moves back to its normal track we will have some more sun. and i suppose i’m inconsistent because i like the fact too that i can sleep late with no intrusive glare.

well now i am going to read the word a little and then eat, before running off to work.
