Spring has finally arrived! It feels so good to say that. I'm excited for jackets and sweater weather (again). I'm excited about longer days and the moment my semester comes to an end. It's been an interesting few months already. Not just with school but other things. I've been planning. I've been putting those plans into action. Life is always about moving forward and that's what I've been doing. I'm getting ready to do and try new things. 

Spring is definitely about new things. It's the rebirth of nature after the cold months. It's when we declutter our spaces and clean like we never have before. Essentially we rejuvenate our lives. To be real with you, Spring started early for me. New York never got much of a winter. Since I fell off on certain things I told myself I would do come the new year, I started over. It's better to restart than to quit and never try again, right?

THE UPDATE

Since we've last spoken, many things have happened. I joined a gym and have been going regularly. I decided to join the gym for many reasons. The most important reason is for my health and lack of energy. I was a student-athlete. Before being a student-athlete, I was a kid who loved being in shape and would work out at home. I was always in shape, energized, and active. When I graduated high school, I didn't play any more sports and I didn't go to the gym to keep up with the lifestyle I love. Adulting made me lazy. I was okay with that for the longest time, but not anymore. I'm currently sore and tired, but I feel my body getting strong. I'm loving the feeling.

I also really wanted to talk about blogging. I wanted to be able to post once a week because I love blogging. I love sharing my ideas, outfits, inspiration, and hearing from you. Unfortunately, all of the assignments my professors assign have been a massive pain in the butt. I've written more papers than ever. I've read and reread the same books for the umpteenth time. I just want to enjoy my spring break already. Some of my professors can tell that we're worn out and they've been trying to go easy on us, but they still have to do their jobs. I still need to learn and be challenged or there's no point. I'll just lose interest.

 SUMMER VIBES

Tranquility is in the air. Summer is flying by and no one can stop her. I wake up most mornings feeling like I'm heading to the beach for a Piña Colada. The feeling of being beachside with a Piña Colada has been wonderful in itself. Summer vibes have everyone feeling free. Toes are in the sand. Ice cream is melting in the hands of children. Adults are occasionally running through hydrants to stay cool.

This summer has been about spending time with the people who matter most. There have been plenty of late nights and early mornings. Voices blare through the speaker of my cell phone shouting with excitement. They wake me up. Can I have one more minute? No. Summer waits for no one. It's time for another thrill.

IT'S ALMOST TIME


Tomorrow I will be on a plane going to a place I haven't been since I was a baby. I will be drifting in the clouds and watching the prairies and ocean from up high. When I land, I'll be embraced with love. Unfamiliar voices will tell me that it's summer vacation and there isn't any time to sleep. Hugs and kisses will fill the airport. My favorite book will be in my hand. A smile will be plastered on my face. The scariest part is over. I've landed. People will be talking over each other and I'll just be amazed by the moment.

"Bienvenida" they'll say.  "Estás en casa."
