It Burns

So summer is moving right along. It seems that at this rate, December will be here in no time (as will graduation). I can hardly wait!

In the meantime I'm trying to keep myself busy. Summer classes are doing a good job at that, but I'm also trying to do what I usually do in spring cleaning, but never got around to this year. I had big plans for today, but I did something stupid that has kinda hampered that.

Xanadu (doo doo doo doo doo),
Now we are here
In Xanadu.

Xanadu your neon lights will shine
