Spring is in the air! Or at least it's temporarily hanging out as a little preview of what is to come. I keep getting caught out when I step outside each morning and having to run to a bathroom to strip off the multiple vests I've been in the habit of layering underneath my clothes. For some reason when it's really sunny on this campus, the light is particularly penetrating and since losing my sunglasses it's impossible to walk around without watery eyes and unavoidable Scream style facial expressions. This is one of the downsides to the sunshine. It is however putting a 'spring' (heh) into my step and making me want to buy new things. I fully acknowledge the urge to buy new things as 'spring fever' when the new magazine campaigns come out and chide you into thinking that wearing cheekily bright skirts and carrying a Christopher Kane clematis bag would just make things so much better. But it would, I'm sure of it.
After staying at my old couchsurfing base in Brooklyn this weekend I've also fallen back in love with Dr Bronner's Magic Liquid soap. I stole a bit while I was having a shower and used it as shampoo. Usually the whole 'all-in-one' concept doesn't appeal to me when it comes to bath products but, there's something about Dr Bronners. Who knows, maybe it's the use of the word 'magic' that butters me up-either way, it felt nice to use something gentle in my hair and fuss free to then use the same magic to wash my toes. I only ever seem to use Dr Bronner's when I'm staying at other people's houses. So perhaps it down the the psychology of showering in other people's bathrooms. Novelty and choice! 'Ooh, I always wondered if this conditioner was any good..' Yoink. Or, 'ooh, they have such nice sponges. Proper sponges. And a pumice stone! I should start using a pumice stone. Mmm pumice stone.' Come to think of it, I quite like showering at other peoples houses. Is that weird?

It looks like a promising read.

Currently on my mind: Jeeps! I always used to go on 'gas guzzling' tirades when I was younger and still don't dig the idea of wasting vast amounts of petrol for the purpose of car vanity but all of a sudden I really rather like jeeps. It's a combination of seeing nice battered black Wranglers zipping around Amherst driven by men with sheepskin denim jackets and nice dogs, watching The Descendants and that photography of girl crush Lulu Kennedy sitting on her own jeep.

Is it wrong to be dreaming away the days thinking about Vitamin D induced sunshine-comas? They say that this is a mild New England winter, and I shall remain respectful and smile as I warmly proclaim 'Mm, yes, toasty!' and rub my hands together convincingly but there is only so much wind chill I can take. I need some rays, man! So I'm incredibly excited to have just booked a trip to Jamaica with a couple of friends from UMass for Spring Break. Hurrah! Now my life goes like this: nodding off in front row of Maritime History class: dreaming of rum cocktails. Waiting in line at the dining commons omelette counter: humming Harry Belafonte. Saying goodbye to the teaching assistant at the end of a discussion: mentally saying 'have a blesss day.' In my fantasies I look like Kate Moss in novelly sunglasses, drink in hand, army jacket slung over my shoulders..
