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.

dear summer,

please bring some happy surprises, rainbows, sunshine, and lots of blue skies.

xoxo,
elisee

p-s: and some chocolate-chip ice-cream too, please, if it isn't too troublesome.

and that deserves a post>

School has started.

And wouldn't you believe it.
It just seemed like last week when I completed my final subject test and then danced for joy.


But summer was good(: So many enjoyable memories and epic times I had. Family outings, debate camp, DNA labs at SC, making and guzzling food, crazy meetups with friends, helping out at church...and now another school year begins. It's really overwhelming at times when I think about it.

All said and done about summer, I have I feeling that I'm gonna enjoy this school year. That is, if I work hard and keep up-to-date with all the work (: It's all about good time planning and responsibility {and all the parents say "amen" ^-^}


GOAL: to try my best, work hard and glorify God in all that I'm about to undertake. And to rest in the strength that only He provides (:

I'm praying that this new school year, will bring a new happy, epic, awesome, superb experience.
