This and That

I need a break...mentally, physically, etc. Not sure what is going on this semester, maybe it is always like this. Maybe BZ is draining me more than I think so it is more difficult to get stuff done. It seems like I just have so much going on. I am really excited for a little mini vacation over spring break to the Smokey Mountains. Might even do a little skiing (yes I know, oh my I might ski.) But for those of you who have seen me ski, I only do easy runs because the other ones are too scary for me and I go down the hill at turtle speed, so I am pretty sure I will be fine. Although I am a little bummed that for the few days we will be gone the weather forecast is in the mid 60's. Man on man, I have been waiting for these days. (Did I mentioned it snow again on Tuesday). I live in the south for a reason!

I have read a few books lately. I finished Elegance of the Hedgehog, which I thought was ok. I wasn't a fan of the writers style and I am not sure I could really explain what the book it about. It was rather dull for me in the beginning but it did get better as the story went on. And then yesterday I finished Outliers-the story of success, which I really enjoyed. What a great book about how a lot of times, what it takes to be successful is opportunities, hard work and cultural background, and perhaps a little luck. It was a very interesting book and I would recommend it to anyone. I am still reading A Brave New World as well. It is just ok to me, and I am almost 2/3 through.
