I was in Holladay, a city on the east side of Salt Lake, today and there were swarms of junior high kids everywhere I looked. And oh my god, junior high kids really are pretty annoying. It’s fine; you’re supposed to be annoying in junior high. I’m sure I was totally annoying. In fact, I know I was. It’s not like I was trying to be annoying, but it just happens so easily at that age. So, anyway, don’t judge me when I say these kids were annoying as shit. I know my mother was probably thinking the very same thing. She works in Holladay and there were masses of them at the snow shack place in front of her work. I could just hear the sighs she was producing. She’s a sigher just like everyone else is a breather, but I’m sure the sighs tripled with the flood of so many kids that were forcing her to look at them.
Anyway, that was kind of a tangent. What the swarms of kids really made me think about was how grateful I am to not be in school anymore. Learning is cool and all, but thank God I no longer have to receive a grade for my learning. For some reason that just sounds torturous at this point in my life. I was a really good student, always on the honor roll, blah blah blah, but I so don’t want to go back. Especially since it may or may not have taken me like 9 years to finish college.
Now that school is back in session, I’m also reminded that summer is pretty much over. This is lame because I pretty much haven’t had a summer this year. Why can’t the summer last longer? Doesn’t mother nature know that smelling suntan lotion and chlorine makes me happy? I guess I should remind myself that Halloween decorations also bring great joy to my life. Oh, and that fall walks are the best because the air is so fresh and brisk. Ok awesome, I’m totally on board with this back to school, seasonal change stuff. Hmmm… what should I be for Halloween this year?!
