The truth about summer

May has been a busy, relaxing, crazy, adjusting month.
The first month of summer.
Sunshine, pools, beaches, tans, sleeping in.
Well, that's what we all anticipate those last week of finals.
But, in reality those summers ended when we turned 16 and finally had to get jobs.

Now summers consist of waking up at 7am or earlier.
Working all day, either for minimum wage or simply for an internship.

I haven't laid by a pool this summer.
I haven't gotten even a slight tan.
I slept in twice (woohoo).

Now we long for the day we get to go back to school.
WHAT.
Yes, I want to go back to school.

What happened to summer?
What happened to the most wonderful days?

We grew up.

...

Now we have to find joy in summer again.
Be lazy on days off.
Shop.
Walk in the sun.
Find joy in the little things.

XOXO,
E.
