About this time every February I start this intense longing for summer. All I can think about is lying in the sun, going to the beach (which I normally don’t even like that much) and going swimming. It hasn’t even been that cold here lately. This whole week the high has been around 70, and I guess that’s what’s doing it.
Most days Landis Green is full of people lying in the sun. I’m so jealous, I wish I had time to go lay out. I miss being tan. I also just miss not having to do anything. Although I worked all last summer.. so I did have to go to work. And I’ll have to work this summer, but hopefully I’ll still be able to find enough time to spend time outside.
I also really love summer because it’s the only time I can just consume book after book. During the school year I’m always forced to read books for my class, so I love being able to cross books off my mile long “to read” list.
This summer I’m looking forward to:
- Soaking up some sun
- Going to the beach
- Reading as much as possible
- Getting a job in the hospital (yes I’m even excited about a job)
- Being as lazy as possible
I still don’t think it’s really sunken in that I’m graduating at the end of April, it seems like I just started here. But I’m not complaining. I’m so done with this city and I’m excited to have my degree. And it’s not like that much will change, since I’ll most likely be back at school in the fall getting my pre-nursing stuff out of the way. Then I’ll be in nursing school, so I’ll still be a “student” for the next two and half or three years.
Its kind of nice to know that I don’t have to give up my comfortable status as a student quite yet. I mean, I’ll only be 21 when I graduate so I guess that’s why. I still have no idea where I’ll be for school, although I’m pretty much assuming at this point that it will be Indiana. It’s the better school, and I’ll end up with a better degree. Its just hard to leave Florida. I don’t even know why I feel like I have to stay here and why I’m so attached to the state. I mean, I have lived here for 10 years… I don’t know. We’ll see..
Since I graduate on April 29, I’ll have the whole month of May off, and I don’t know that I’ll be working that much, so I hope I can spend as much time as possible outside, swimming, reading, etc.
We’ll see what the future brings.
