It’s almost September.

Bits and pieces out of notebook pages from this month.

1. I started senior year on August 17th, 2016. That is terrifying.

2. There have been a few mornings where I’ve opened my window expecting light to flood the glass but was met with dense fog and dew drops, and I couldn’t have been more pleased.

seeing stars

I only have myself to blame for my endlessly running mind.

I can’t remember how long we stood there in the dying grass under the pulsing sky, feeling the breeze brush our noses as the snuffling noises of Rory’s two dogs filled our ears.

We could see a few constellations really clearly, and there was even the chance to see Jupiter’s stripes as well as four of its moons.  Continue reading

A few thoughts before (hopefully) hitting the roads

1- I saw the end of a rainbow today during our math quiz that I thought would be much harder than what it actually was and just like that I realized: nothing is as it seems or is told because there was nothing but a parking lot where gold should have been waiting.  Continue reading
