I never run into the people I really want to see, and I always run into the people I do not wish to see at the most inopportune moments.
I gripe about homework and can't wait for school to be over, but I am terrified to graduate and enter the real world.
I look forward to payday, but then as soon as it comes, my money disappears - spent on dumb necessary things faster than I know where it's gone.
When I read a really good book, I can't wait to finish it, but at the same time I want it to last forever.
I do not like exercising and I try to get out of it whenever possible, but I love the feeling of shaky legs after a really long run and sore abs after pilates.
I love the lazy feeling of having nothing I need to do, but I hate the bored feeling of having nothing to do. That's why...as much as I have enjoyed the drowsy leisureliness of summer...I am really looking forward to the bustling industriousness of being a student again. I love school. I thrive on structure, challenge, accomplishment, and deadlines. I love new notebooks and binders and gluesticks and markers and mechanical pencils (even though the only new thing I really need is a notebook). I love the excitement in the air on the first day of school. I love the vitality brought to the campus by those eager and overzealous freshmen students who honestly have no idea what they're in for. I love the fact that the first day of school is when we all get excited and try to break out our fall wardrobes, even though it's still 95 degrees outside. I love it all. I can't wait for August 31st.
