Making new friends isn’t easy but but it can be totally awesome.
Yesterday was the best. It could be because the sun was out (FINALLY!!) but I think it had more to do with the company than anything else.
It took about an hour-ish to abandon our books and our indoor study session for the joy of the sun. The temptation of nachos proved to be too strong so Matador was a must with another study-weary soul. Then the beach was calling our names.
Mind you, I was wearing jeans, flip flops, a hoodie,
and brought another jacket along with our two blankets, but THE SUN WAS OUT!!
When the sun is out you MUST be outside. It’s a Seattle rule.
Joined later on in our beach adventure by two other study weary classmates we lounged, threw rocks, laughed, dreamed of boats and kayaks, of camping and summer; we laughed more then parted ways with the promise of seeing each other again soon.
Another group of people nearby had made a small fire in the firepit, so while the sun was slowly making its way to it’s home behind the mountains, moving towards warming another part of this earth, I reveled in the smell of summer – the smell of the fire smoke wafting over me, the feeling of warmth on my face from the sun, hearing the laughter of those I care for in my ears while we yell at each other “no more talking of school! party foul with your therapy talk!!”
And I thought I’d be studying all day. Who am I to argue with the sun?
