a bit bookish in southern illinois
my unsubtle reminder to myself: to do everything i came here to do
I really can’t believe that the summer is nearly over (though I’m ready to be done with summer heat—on to autumn coolness!)... my parents and I are leaving tomorrow morning to take Adrienne (my younger sister) back to college. School already! The buses keep going by our house, packed with little kids, and I snicker every time I pass the high school—its parking lots are full. Yikes. I still like the feeling of summer freedom.
And it’s almost sinking in: I’m not heading back to school this year! Hard to break a sixteen-year habit, though…
