I liked it, so I put a ring on it.

I cannot believe it is already June.  As a student, I could hardly wait for summer to come and the months seemed to drag on by as midterms and finals terrorized my piece of mind.  I am a true believer that during the summer, Seattle is the most beautiful place in the country.  Am I biased?  Most definitely.  But the combination of greenery, lakes and sunshine is almost too much to resist.  Granted, Seattle summers don’t usually actually start until about mid-late July but I’ve enjoyed the bits of sun that we’ve been getting already.  I’ll admit it: I am most definitely a better person across the board when the sun is shining.

I’ve found that self-deprecation is a great way to either ease tension/lighten a mood or to make things awkward. If this first entry has either of these effects on you, then I will call this a successful entry. So without further ado:
