Summer of Nick

June 25, 2006

The summer of Nick has officially begun. After graduation, my friends Paul, Kelli, Mirah, Ben, Katie, Ryan and I headed to Roslyn, WA to a cabin we won at an auction. It was great. Not only was it the most relax I have been in two years; I spent it in the company of good friends – who are also good cooks. We ate very well on the trip. Here are some photos from the trip.

In addition to finding a job and planning the national NAGPS conference, I have sketched out some activities for the summer.

  • Read – my list includes: Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris, The End of Poverty by Jeffery Sachs, How Soccer Explains the World by Franklin Foer and The Plot Against America by Philip Roth.
  • Play X-Box – I just got X-Box live and it has been great.
  • Workout five days a week – I started the summer off good but I have slacked off some.
  • Keep my apartment tidy – no excuses
  • Cook a new meal each week
  • Finish Brian and Traci’s Wedding Video
  • Head down to the Washington Coast

Keep on checking this blog. I will keep you all posted on the summer activities.
