the post spring break itch
I'm back at school. I can feel spring creeping into my bones, even though I try to fight it off. Truth be told, I'm a fall person. Even still, I can't help but love the in between times of each season.
It comes every year: that irresistible urge to shed layers of clothing, to slurp icy cold drinks, to eat fruit with everything, to blast the oldies and goodies from your ipod with the windows down. And if you're like me, spring can also manifest itself in your nerves. Case in point: an hour ago, when in the middle of my phone conversation with Matt, I started to move my bed across the room. I just had to. I was going crazy. The reason? It felt like winter in my room.
After putting away dozens of photo frames, knick knacks, and dust bunnies, I felt that sigh of relief. Windows open, fan blowing, the smell of fresh linen in the air--I'm finally ready for warmer days.
Am I crazy? Do you feel the need to clean and purge as soon as the temperature rises?
Anyway...happy spring. Enjoy watching everything bloom!
