Spring Procrastinating

Oh hey another intro about Spring. Now I know what you're thinking, "hey you did that last week because you said you had something planned for this week!" Yes...yes I did (it'll be ready next week).
Flowers are starting to bloom, it's light jacket weather, Bon Iver won't be back for 6 to 7 months, and if you're from anywhere where it is not roughly 55-73 degrees Fahrenheit- you want me to shut up right now.

Enjoy your lunch.
