sigh of relief

as i try to make my way in this grown-up world of being a responsible adult, i keep discovering that various things i believed as a child were actually lies. for instance, that my acne would clear up after adolescence. also, that after i finished school for good, summertime would just be like any other time of the year. summer was always a crazy time of campouts, vacations, swim team, random activities, and disrupted schedules when i was growing up. and although i loved it, it was always kind of nice to go back to school in the fall, and back to a normal routine. i guess i assumed that it would change after i finished college and entered the real world. i was sad that i wouldn't have the long breaks in the summers anymore, but also looked forward to having a somewhat normal schedule year-round. boy was i wrong. in actuality, adults get to deal with all the craziness of summer (trips, vacations, events, etc) AND continue going to work each week, paying bills, juggling life, etc. which is why i've been dead to the blogging world the past couple of months. i don't remember ever having such a full summer in my life. and although it was great, i'm welcoming the first cool breeze of fall with a sigh of relief.


  1. Where's the cool breeze? It's certainly not here...

  2. Hannah! Although there is no breeze it is 74 outside and feels...nice :-) Now in Siloam Springs it is 57 right now...and THAT is cool (envy)! Ruth, I too liked the routine of the school year.....

  3. Hahah.
    And sort of sad.
    Tell me, how long does it take to really feel like and adult? Because I don't. . . yet.

  4. how long does it take to feel like an adult? i don't know. i'll let you know when it happens to me.
