Summer's Almost Over...

Heheeheh...flip-flops. The greatest things ever made. 
So, summer's almost over.  School will begin in a couple weeks, there's already a different feeling in the air, and I'm not on vacation anymore  - __ - I can't decide whether I'm happy summer's over or sad it's over.  Yeah, I know, weird thought.  Most people are so sad that summer is over but I'm the kind of person who likes to DO things and sometimes summer gets a little on the boring side and all I do is read, swim, update my blog, and play tennis and field hockey.  I like to go to school. I admit it.  There's something incredibly exciting about Pre-Algebra, don't you think? (Nope, I'm not being sarcastic.  I actually LIKE Pre-Algebra, weird as it seems.)  But also there's something incredibly SAD about summer being over. No more beach days.  No more awesome sleepaway field hockey camps.  And worst of all, no more flip-flops!!!! Not only are flip-flops against the dress code, they won't be in season anymore.  When school ends, I'm more excited about wearing flip-flops than going to the beach.  Yes, it's weird. And yes, I am a weird person.
    But flip-flops aren't the point of this post even though I love them more than I can tell you. The point is I've had an interesting but good summer.  I've gone to music festivals, seen friends, spent time with my sister before her crazy excursion across the world this year, grown my hair long, painted my fingernails obsessively, read more books than any other summer, made a blog, spent probably too many hours on the computer, argued with my mom, gotten school supplies, eaten a lot of watermelon and caramel-y candy bars that are only found in Canada (Caramilks), watched the Olympics, turned 12 and three quarters, listened to music that I normally wouldn't listen to, and a lottt of other things.
  I love my blog and having a place to rant about random things, review books, and just write, write, write.  Everyone has given me so much inspiration and even though I don't have that many followers my now 35 followers mean the world to me and I think I would have given up without them supporting me and commenting on my posts.  Yes, this is the part where the blogger gets teary but I'm just not that kind of person.  I just wanna say thanks, and that's it.
   While I'm really excited for the upcoming school year, I have to be honest and say that I'm a little scared.  Being a 7th grader and starting a new school--how will that work out for me? Good? Bad? Somewhere in between? Will I start on the field hockey team? What about the tennis team? Am I gonna make friends easily? Am I going to have ANY time to read and write posts? :O Am I going to really miss my sister badly? A lot of things are running through my mind right now.  Don't get me wrong. I'm pretty excited about everything. But there are also minor worries.
   Enough of that, though! School year, here I come!!!!!


  1. I was just thinking the same thing yesterday while I was getting my school supplies. And hey you're not alone I'm excited to start Algebra II this year. I also love wearing flip flops its like the only shoes I wear all summer!

  2. I feel the same way as you Annie! Both sad that summer is soon over yet excited for a new school year! Hope you have fun at your new school! Don't be too scared, because honestly, I find it great to be able to change schools, fresh start and everything. I hope you make lots of new friends, and keep on blogging!
