the terrible process adapting back to school

typography by me :: via

living things adapt.
or so they tell you in primary school.

adapting back to school after like, 3 months of summer, is a different thing altogether. teachers have already started sending emails to remind me to do this and that. aside from feeling "a grief that can't be spoken"*, it has been relatively exciting. i like colors. so i'm making sure most of my stationary this year are colorful and happy, to detract from the sadness of reading tiny tiny words in the textbooks.

but i had so much fun this summer. so many get-togethers with awesome friends. both crazy + awkward moments. depressing moments. times when i felt so free, and alive. family hangouts, movie nights, fiction, late night talks. and, all too soon, it's gone. it only seemed like yesterday when i bid farewell to school and all its quirks.

the last taste i have of summer 2013 was adventure. i'll never forget how much fun i had dodging the 'bullets' at laser tag, hiding behind walls, launching surprise attacks, undercover missions.

i'll miss the freedom of summer, but i'm praying this school year finds me diligent, responsible, creative, and [hopefully] having fun as well.


because it's dawning upon me that this monday would be the beginning of school. yes.

  1. I always have fun at the beginning of the school year, and I always look forward to it even though I KNOW in just a little while I'll be wishing it was summer again. ha! the joys of life.


  2. I feel the same way. we think back to certain years, but we also think back to certain times in a year. and certain times in our lives. i'm really looking forward to the fall but I will miss the freedom of summer.

    i really appreciate you being my first follower! *squee!* you're awesome. i like your name too ;D
