As summer is now coming to a close (as the tears fall) and are preparing for the upcoming school year, why not take some time to reflect on how wonderful these past few months have been. Lots of memories made, laughs shared, encouragement given, and growth as a person has been done. Here is summer by the "Friends" theme song:
So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Live in the moment. Be free. Don't expect, seek, or look for anything. Therefore you can't be disappointed with the outcome.
(clap clap clap clap)
Yay for summer, sunshine, and simplicity! These are the happiest days of your life.
Your job's a joke,
(well kind of) Life is not so great when you have deal with plumbing issues and people swearing and giving you the finger about not getting a parking spot. But you love the people who you work with!
And that is why I live with my parents still.
Your love life's D-O-A
Therefore, you have secret crushes on the hot olympic swimmers (especially Nathan Adrian). But then you still have your forever celebrity crush: John Krasinski--that smile though...
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
It's summer, who cares?
Or when it hasn't been your day
Your week, your month, or even your year
Especially when you start a dumpster fire at work and didn't realized it happened until you go into work the next day and have to explain to your boss what happened. (I really don't know still!)
I'll be there for you (When the rain starts to pour)
Your family is there with you, through the ups, downs.
I'll be there for you (Like I've been there before)
Sometimes you just have to leave town and escape to another world. Take risks and do something besides sitting around watching Netflix.
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me, too)
Dear Lake Michigan, Thank you for being my best friend this summer. You and I have had a lot of nice sunny days filled with sand and smiles. Then you would somehow get mad at me and the waters would be rough (did I forget to reply to a text again? Sorry). But we always were able to end the night with perfection and a scene of joy. Thank you for making me have hope and the ability to take pleasure in all that I do.
Here's to the end of summer (but really the seasons just change) and the adventures that await this upcoming year!
