Summer is almost over, and I am halfway done with college. I can’t decide whether I should celebrate or cry. I mean I don’t wanna cry, but I am sad to see my precious days diminishing. And so I sit here and can’t help but think about that dashboard confessional song from my high school days. So cheesy, I know, but read these words and tell me you can’t relate.
“So long sweet Summer
I stumbled upon you and gratefully basked in your rays
So long sweet summer
I fell into you
Now you’re gracefully falling away.”
And so I try to mentally prepare myself for the next school year. For the busyness, sleepless nights, stressful tests, coffee dates with classmates, etc. And as my summer mellows down, I do things such as:
Take cody to barking springs, (FREE FREE FREE). this photo above would be his profile picture if he had a facebook.
We dine at the finest of the fine (@ Austin Java).
I have the greatest college dog because I can, and I do, take him everywhere with me. (@ Dolce Vita Gelato & Espresso).
And during my breaks at home, I like to lay on my comfy bed with the pups. Their cuteness can be distracting, but I would never ask them to leave.
I spend my evenings laughing with these people who do nothing but bring brightness to my days.
I cherish all the friendships I have made this summer and am grateful for this community.
Getting back into the groove of things will be healthy. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of these free summer days. Go bask in the sun and sing your favorite song with the windows down and the AC still blasting cause it’s so darn hot outside.
