spring break

So here I am on Spring Break, sitting in front of the computer. Many of the people I know from school have trips planned from Miami to Barcelona, and here I am in Chicago, with exciting plans to head to tropical Sycamore Illinois. But I don't mind this fact. I have high hopes of getting really significant thesis work done this week as well as a lot of job searching. And I was able to take the whole weekend off and spend it relaxing, so now my mind is able to go back to work.

So if you're interested in procrastinating as I have been, here are a few point of interest I've come across this morning....
  • Nicholas Hughes, the son of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath killed himself this month. Not a fun tid-bit, but interesting. 
  • Want a fun and colorful desktop wallpaper? Check out these from Sigrid and Hans Lammle via
  • My oh My! I cant get enough of Anthony Bourdain! Find out when you can watch his show No Reservations on the Travel Channel here
  • Aren't these paper cut outs amazing? see below.
