SUMMER NOT LOVIN’

There was a point – a few weeks ago – where I begun actually experiencing signs of excitement for the “reopening” of school but after returning today from registration: I completely regret those feelings.


Time has, once again, flown by and school is already on its way. It still seems so fresh too me, I can practically still smell it – the smell of an amazing summer; water, sand, the sound of screaming teens partying and living life like most regular teenagers. At this point that visual has completely vanished because my summer was filled with nothing but “I’m bored’s” and “I’m hungry’s.” I spent this entire summer worrying about what to eat. It’s true. My sleeping schedule has also dramatically changed from 12AM-6:45AM to 3AM-12PM and I’m asking myself if that’s normal.

I highly doubt it.

There was a point – a few weeks ago – where I begun actually experiencing signs of excitement for the “reopening” of school but after returning today from registration: I completely regret those feelings. I don’t know why every year I expect school to be different. I think at this point I need to acknowledge that high school will never be what it’s portrayed as on television. It’s all rubbish, but yet there I was, sitting down anxiously awaiting for school hoping for change.

However, this year is the first year that I am actually experiencing the “typical-high-school-school-shopping-syndrome,” in other words: I bought a pack of pens, pencils, and paper. Nothing else. A simple shopping list that stores hate. I know this for a fact because every year they set up lists of flyers that tell you what you should be buying at your grade level and truthfully, I say it’s all bullshit. You DO NOT need a stapler in school. No teacher will ask the class to pull out their fucking staplers.
