Last-Minute Summer To-Do List

Well folks, for those of you who are like me and live by the academic calendar, there about two weeks left of summer. That means there are two weeks left to do all of those things you said you were going to back in the winter when your eyelashes were freezing, the rain relentlessly occupying your boots or whatever winter woes you suffer in your region. For myself, this has been an unusually productive summer between working for seven weeks in Van, spending July in Quebec and now, doing a hometown visit that has included auxiliary trips and family reunions. But, that doesn't mean I haven't wasted a few days away. Now is the time to reclaim them and make the best of these (as my mother says nearly everyday, all summer) "last nice days".

HEAR THIS: Summer 2012 Playlist

I was inspired after that last HEAR THIS to post more music but in order to condense the experience here is a playlist that I've been rocking this summer. It's not very long and some are newer than others but I think they're all good.

Click here for the playlist!

Your girl,

HEAR THIS: Stromae - Alors on Danse

This song has been the jam out here in Quebec. Give it a listen. The video for it is kinda whack but in that familiar, whack French way.
