Summer, so tantalizingly close, but so far away. We sit in class and we dream about swimming in cool blue water, and eating a box of Popsicles for lunch. We dream about having a friend sleepover for a week straight. We dream about waking up at 11 every day and staying up all night. We dream of freedom. I miss the heat of the season and I miss the excitement of the idea of a whole summer ahead of me.
