First Day of School

In honor of the first day of school around here, I present you with this glorious picture of my first day of kindergartenIsn’t my outfit so amazingly 80’s? Bright colors. Suspenders. Dinosaurs (an obsession of mine at the time). I can still remember how excited I was to start school, just so I could wear my new outfit. It was spectacular. These days, the first day of school doesn’t mark a change in my own life. But it always sparks a wave of nostalgia. Oh how I miss back to school shopping. New pencils, cool pens, crisp white notebooks. A dream come true for a nerd like me. I even miss the excitement I would feel when I received a syllabus for a new college class. I would consume the syllabus and be totally excited for all of the things we were going to read and even start looking forward to the papers I was going to write. Like I said, I am a total nerd. I’m ok with it. Yep, definitely miss college. Until I remember the 1000+ pages of reading per week, some of those pages being from books that I definitely did not enjoy reading (hello Middlmarch), never having any spare time because I was always too busy reading and writing papers… Ok, guess I’m alright with just reading books of my own choosing and buying scrapbooking supplies instead of back to school supplies.
