Well, here it is… the end of an era. For those of you who haven’t noticed, the last time I posted was an entire week ago. That would be because school is officially back in session, therefore bringing my summer vacation to a close. If I may, I’d just like to say that I don’t feel bitter. I didn’t feel like crying at the prospect of leaving those lazy, hazy days behind. I felt no urge to abandon all thought and just slowly wither away into submission. I actually felt completely at ease, because for once I had no regrets. Instead of wasting away on the couch for three months, I took the initiative to finally create the summer utopia I had always longed for. You see, no matter what’s around the corner, as long as you have memories of true happiness, it makes the looming future seem a little less scary. This is a summer I will never forget. I learned to enjoy myself. I learned to take myself a little less seriously. I learned that everyone has so much to give. I learned that life is so full of potential; you just have to go out there and grab it. Most importantly, I learned. It’s as simple as that. Plus, I accomplished 53 things I never would have dreamt of doing before.
Alright, now it’s time for the million-dollar question: Will I be continuing to pursue this journey? This is a quandary that has long consumed my thoughts. Initially, the whole point of this blog was essentially to just keep me busy. However, it’s become so much more than that. To keep a long story short, the answer is yes. Needless to say, I won’t be posting nearly as often, but I am going to aim for once a week. Besides, Florida is the land of Endless Summer… Brace yourselves for Part II.
Love & Summer,
