I’m going to stick with this school theme because I like it! I remember when school lasted until the second week of June and it felt like forever, and everyone was just staring at the clock on the last day waiting for the end of class to run out and scream “No more teachers, no more books!” on the bus home. I remember how in elementary school the kids who were super brave would actually sing the world “hell” at the end of that song. I was not one of those kids. Teacher’s pet for days. When I was a kid, there was a thing where people would bring silly string and spray everyone on the last day of school. Eventually we had our bags checked on the last day to make sure we didn’t have any. But then friends would bring it to us after we were released and it happened anyway. The 90s feel so far away and harmless now.
It is HOT. I don’t think there’s any escape now. No more cold snaps for us, we’re all in. And I don’t mind it. Spending a good part of my early life in the south has prepared me for the high temperatures and the constant sweating. Just an excuse for me to wear as little makeup as possible and start making strawberry rhubarb pies. And eat ice cream for breakfast. And wearing bold colors and rompers and flowy maxi dresses. This outfit is straight outta Stitch Fix. The bright comfy t-shirt has a fun pattern on the back, and I can’t help but love this skirt which I featured a little while ago. It’s nice to walk around with a big burst of color.
Where did summer come from? It snuck up on everyone, especially me. April and May were on and off chilly, and while our evenings aren’t warm quite yet, the sun is out more. It’s helped with keeping a positive attitude through busy and stressful days. While not all stress is bad, it still takes a toll and May has taken a toll. I decided to take on a new job while also beginning rehearsals for a show. So smart right? Yes. Super smart. Well, balancing both has left little time for anything else. What do my friends’ faces even look like anymore? I just don’t know. On the few days I’ve had off sprinkled here and there I’ve taken solace in time with Phil, going for runs, and gin and tonics. Not necessarily in that order. I’m hoping to level out within a few weeks. But for now, I’ll enjoy weekend mornings walking around the city with Phil. And some ice cream. Because both those things will always make me happy.
