back to school

My late morning coffees and reading on the porch till noon are officially over.  It's back to school for all the teachers and kiddos in Wilmington.  Although I can't help but secretly love this time of year.  It brings back some nostalgic thoughts of my childhood - back to school shopping.  I will forever treasure those excursions where I would beg my mom for the coolest neon pens all the while imagining what cool notes they would make to my friends and how I would pass them in class.  Then came the outfits.  Oh the outfits.  With my mom's assistance I would undoubtedly have the first two weeks of outfits picked out to the tee (to increase sleeping time duh), and played with my hair until I knew exactly what I wanted it to do.  Back to school symbolizes a fresh start.  A new beginning.  New teachers that aren't annoyed with you yet.  New experiences to share with your best friends.  I think that is why I love this time so much.  Sure, now I'm not in school, in fact I'm on the other side of it, but it still brings hope.  Hope for a great year and a fresh dedication to hard work.  I don't know about you but I never refer to time by the calendar year or formal seasons.  No.  I will always think in semesters, spring breaks and summer vacations.  So here's to my new beginnin
g... and it's back to school for me.
