This weekend my parents decided that I don't spend enough money on myself. Its true, I really don't spend money, but I don't see that as a problem. Not wanting to spend $50 on a small piece of plastic to drown out the sounds of the world seems valid to me. I did give in and buy the $40 mp3 player because it includes a radio and it will make me learn Spanish. I want it so I can listen to podcasts during my commute this summer since I'll be taking the train to Boston daily. I'll have to figure out how to practice speaking without a) seeming insane talking to myself or b) accidentally striking up a conversation in a language I don't yet know.
Otherwise the weekend was quiet. 3 members of my family are injured (thrown back, knee gone out and arthritis aggravated by a bad p.t. session) so we just laid low and watched movies. Easter pie was delicious and fulfilled tradition. Pie is really all that matters!
