Sun Is On My Side

Oh summer! Just one more day and you’re officially here. Yesterday for the solstice, I celebrated with books, bike rides, candles, and writing. I sat outside in the warm sunshine and read while eating a chicken salad with blueberry goat cheese and strawberries and drinking Diet Coke. I went on a bike ride around my neighborhood while music filtrated through my ears and vibrated in my chest. I closed my eyes and breathed in the air, redolent of summer. Afterwards, I lit candles, cleaned out my room, and threw away all of my school stuff. I am finally free of cumbersome academic responsibilities! Now it is my time to focus on myself, to read, to write, and to enjoy life.
