Spring has sprung, the grass is riz....

Despite the fact that the "first day of spring" was last week Monday, spring made its official appearance today in Ancaster. The sun was shining brightly, the quad was filled with the sounds of dripping water, and, the most telling fact of all, the hallway was filled with shorts and sandal-clad students. Kenny, Laura Moelker and I decided to welcome in the first day of Spring by lounging outside: granted, we had to sprawl on the concrete stoop because the grass had been marshified by the melting snow, but it was a happy way to spend an hour (or in Laura's case, skip a class) none-the-less. I don't know if it was the weather or the fact that I finished my last university seminar today, but whatever the cause, I've been insanely giddy and hyper for the past two hours now. I expect it'll wear off soon, seeing as how I'm planning to write a paper tonight, but it's kind of fun while it lasts. Too bad the house is empty right now. If the roads weren't all wet I'd be out rollerblading presently. That's another happy thing about spring... out come the roller blades! Sigh. What a wonderful time of year. I love the fact that we have changing seasons here. What a great place to live!
