Snowy Capitol, source: http://www.cnn.com

It’s a snow day! Washington, D.C. is expecting anywhere between 4-10 inches of snow in the next 12 or so hours. While it has only just started snowing where I live, school was cancelled in anticipation of heavy snowfall!

I am unreasonably excited (let’s be real: you’re never really too old for a snow day!) because I could really use the “catch up” day to get up to speed with all of my school work. I have an assignment for my legal writing class to work on and some criminal law readings to catch up on, so that should keep me pretty busy for most of the day. It’s a little bit of a downer (don’t you miss the days when a snow day meant lounging around in your pajamas, watching television, and having your Mom make you hot cocoa?!) that I have to do work on my day “off,” but I figure I’ll regret it later if I don’t make good use of this extra time.

I also might take the extra time to catch up on some television shows I missed: namely, Sleepy Hollow! I don’t know if anyone else likes that show (yes, it can get a little cheesy/formulaic at times) but I’m hooked. I’m generally a fan of new twists on old concepts when it comes to books and movies, so is it any wonder that I’m a fan of the show? Sleepy Hollow came back, but I ended up missing it, because I went to bed early—I have a 9am class on Tuesdays (yay for that getting cancelled!) and after a long weekend, it’s a real struggle to get up and ready on time, so I figured if I turned in early, I would have less trouble waking up. I also need to watch the last episode of Revenge, too. (Though I’ve been kind of been not wanting to watch it all that much, because Daniel’s just gotten to be unbearably annoying lately.)

…But then, school got cancelled, so it was all for nothing! But I can’t say I’m unhappy about it—after all, the best way to end a long weekend is obviously to make it even longer!

What’s your favorite way to spend a snow day?
