I need the smell of summer, I need its noises in my ears
SPRING IS COMING.
I am in a frenzy of excitement. You could smell it in the air today, that elusive scent of freedom, of roaming the streets at home in the balmy summer days, swimming, relaxing, loving life.. of getting ready for a night of friends, bonfires, coffee houses, just making memories. I wore flip flops to class today, ditched the coat.. sunglasses were a must. Ah, shorts. What a foreign concept. I cannot wait to experience the glory of naked legs once more. Warm weather is on its way, and I am going along for the ride. No more sweaters! No more bulky hats and gloves and scarves and 1/2 freezing to death just trying to walk to lunch. I can run outside! I don't have to go into that stinking, windowless room that is reminiscent of a jail cell just to get a workout in. I can swim.. and tan.. and not have to do schoolwork.. I can just enjoy myself! This is my summer. I have to live it up. After this, things will change. I am going to savor every moment of every experience, take pictures, write journals, I want to remember every second and cherish it forever. I am going to be right in the thick of everything. I can't wait.
