rx: monday morning motivation

It's chilly. It's cloudy. It's monday morning. Not the greatest combination, but like Tim Gunn says... We'll make it work.
So I'm just going to pull the curtains closed and look at bright cheery pictures like the one below and concentrate on how I can be productive and creative this week (because it's spring break... yay!).
