I do not regret a day of summer spent lounging, laughing or learning though because i needed this, i need to just be happy, to just live, to remember that i am young and it is okay to enjoy youth even in the midst of adulthood...
I did manage to sleep till noon, honestly more than i'd like to have but i appreciate it as having happened and i needed it in the them when it did. I was sure however to not spend the entire time under covers lazing about, this free time i haven't had in nine months was not about to miss me!
I didn't make number 2 on the list but i did go to the beach at least 10 times and i honestly have not gotten sick of it yet! I thought that i eventually would but sitting on the sand, listening to the ocean, watching a caribban sunset over the caribbean sea? It doesn't seem to get old! Who knew!
It honestly took me most of the summer but i did do number 3 on my summer to-do list. Never letting things get that bad again, no matter how hectic school gets!
Didn't do number 4 but may need a whole summer for that alone with the sinus issues i've got.
Number 5 got done because i'm very sentimental and hold on to my things till i can simply find no saving way for them so it was easy to finally part with all my not-able-to-wear shoes. I now own A peer of sneakers. 3 black work shoes, 1 brown fancy peer of slippers. and 4 flip flops. Yep, that's it! i need to go shoe shopping. I have nothing for events :/ The price we pay for decluttering.
I decided to watch two South Korean Drama Series instead this year or i might have spent all summer watching them. So i watched School 2013 which i think lent itself to me becoming a better teacher and I Miss You, which turned out to be much heavier than i bargained for but good all the same.
I did do number 8 but i also wanted to give myself a chance to hear music i might not have listened to otherwise or on my own, i figured the easiest way to do this would be to ask a friend to make me a youtube playlist that way i wasn't searching my familiars but getting to know someone elses...it was fun and i'll share some of my favorites with you soon that i discovered through her.
Lastly, as i hope you can tell i spent lots of time with friends, laying around on the beach eating chocolate, watching the sunset, having reflective philosophical conversations, playing my favorite five word game the name of which i do not know, having my first MaiTai, going to a play, getting invited to an awesome birthday pool party and enjoying the sky and clouds and flowers before the sun came up.
As you can tell there down to the end i started to ready myself for school again as a teacher and resumed my journey as a students. For the nest 9 months i wont see my friends or the beach like i would like to but i'll be grasping at my dreans like my life depends on it.
Good luck to those among you doing the same.
Peace. Love. Learning.
