Post Spring Break... Post

I'm going to start this post with a striking article:

The Invention of Artificial Light May Slowly be Killing Us...

Once humans possessed the technology of artificial light, we extended our usable waking hours by an average of 13%. Some researchers believe that this modern convenience, credited with bringing the human race in from the dark, may also be responsible for numerous ills...

My Spring Break was not the most exciting week off from school I've ever had, but it was a good time. Activites ranged from spending time with Amy, Brandon, and Jamie to working... that was pretty much it. We ended up going to Augie's jazz festival to listen to and watch Roosevelt's jazz bands. In between jazz II and I, we cruised on over to Sioux Valley hospital to donate some blood with Brandon winning the race. Jamie gets an honorable mention for trying... Jazz II by the way, sounded very good with a balanced selection of tunes and matching ties. After the blood letting, we headed back to Augie, arriving just in time to hear Jazz I. Unfortunately, a bout of sickness had made its way through the band and in the middle of a great Clarinet solo, the lead Tenor player got sick and had to leave. The kids finished up the naked song with composure and quickly went on to finish their set. All will be better when the two bands make their way up to Brookings on April 4th for the first ever Optimist Jazz Festival.
Other spring break activites included a "night on the town" with a decadent supper at Burger Time on w. 12th, laid back coffee drinks at the Downtown/Minnesota ave. Starbucks, fine shopping and employment oppourtunities at Target, and some exsquisite cinema at the residence of Ms. Jamie Englund. All in all, a nice vacation. Now, however it is back to the grind with a paper due and a recital this week. Then after that, maybe some paintballing next week or weekend...

UPDATE:
Due to recent questions / comments, I was made aware that there was no mention of The 'Vee in this post. Here goes...

I did work at The 'Vee during spring break too, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It was an ok week with hours in both GM (general merchandise) and CSV (Customer Service / Video). That's about it... Nothing really exciting happened (sorry Ashley).
