It's Summertime!

According to weather.com, it is currently ninety degrees Fahrenheit in Bloomington, IN, with a heat index of a sweltering one hundred. After I'm done sweating it out in the office, I think I'm going to treat myself to some delicious froyo. In the meantime, though, I'm going to try and remind myself of all the reasons (well, ten of them) that summer should be celebrated. So, here goes:

1. As mentioned, frozen yogurt: the real thing.

2. Lounging by the pool with a good book: most recently, Cottonlandia, by Rebecca Black (this Rebecca Black), and In the Blue Pharmacy, by Marianne Boruch.

3. Listening to nineties jams (like this one and this one) that remind me of awkward, pre-adolescent summers in the suburbs of Ohio.

4. Reading publications like People, In Touch, and US Weekly without (too much) guilt.

5. Dancing it up to Lady Gaga's new album.

6. Orange nail polish.

7. Hammocks.

8. That the sun doesn't set until 9 pm, so there's lots of time in the day to write. Right?

9. Spending time with great friends.

10. Working at Indiana Review!

What are some of your favorite things about summer? Stay tuned for a new trivia question, coming tomorrow!
