Fly by

In the blink of an eye, summer time passed by. It seems like just yesterday that I was drinking iced coffee and walking the streets of downtown wayzata with one of my best friends enjoying the first evening of summer. The time has gone by too quickly.

Like I mentioned in a previous post, this summer has been both the shittiest and the best of my life. I I think the good outweigh the bad though, which is what's most important. To quote something I saw on pinterest, "The only thing that makes it a part of your life is that you keep thinking about it." So true. I need to focus on the good things.

This summer, I basically took on a Woohoo I'm almost done with high school perspective. I didn't really do anything productive for school or college, but I did have an amazing couple months spending time with friends and family. Which I am now regretting somewhat because I could have put a little more effort into college research...but oh well. What's done is done. College stuff will get done eventually. I'll look back in ten years and smile about the unforgettable memories I've made. 

In the past week alone I've gone thrifting around Minneapolis (I bought a pair of sevens shorts for five dollars. If that isn't the biggest steal you've seen, I don't know what is), I saw the Dirtyheads and Tristan Prettyman, I went to Perkins at 1:30 in the morning, I've gone to see Coldplay (concert of the year--still speechless), and I went ziplining and accomplished a high ropes course. Wow, run-on sentence much? Use your rhetorical skills and figure out why I did that. Guys, I was dangling 120 feet from the ground. On top of that, more than once I laughed until tears were streaming down my face. One of the best weeks of my life. 

Coldplay. They came into the audience and the spot they chose just happened to be right where we were sitting. Lucky us! 

I'll enjoy the last couple weeks of summer. Before I know it I'll once again be packing my bag with notebooks and pencils instead of sunscreen and a swimsuit.

  1. I'm sorry to hear that this summer has been shitty. I definitely know how that feels. Good luck to you in your senior year :) It goes by faster than you can imagine.
