Summertime and the livin' is easy...
Crafty Classmates,
I know summer doesn't "officially" start until June but the heat is rising and it's getting about time to lay out by the pool. This coming week brings you some good oppurtunities to enjoy summer: get some baseball tickets (the "Boys of Summer"), celebrate being a bike commuter (only a couple more weeks before the humidy makes you hate your trusty steed, enjoy it while it lasts) and do the good work that the lazy days of summer allows (Blood Drive and Habitat for Humanity).
Make it happen, my Duke compatriots! Life is for the living out there!
