This week was crazy busy. I had a ton of homework to do - what IS IT about the second week of school? Maybe I always work too hard the first week & use up all my energy? Maybe it was waking up at 5 o'clock five days in a row and walking two miles before six?!! Who knows. There were a few days when I was so high on high school - so ecstatic - I could barely breathe. Scary happy. At the level of a wannabe writer and filmmaker - there was so much love for teachers and students and school being back in that the movie camera was rolling for several days. Then one morning I woke up at four o'clock and opened my phone and found this photograph some of my senior
friends students in my homeroom took but didn't show to me - what makes them love taking selfies with my phone is something of a mystery to me. That's the day I officially caught the senior spirit from them - despite the fact that I'm 53. I was standing in the cafeteria when it hit. You know that feeling that in just ten months - you can leave high school forever. That you have so many choices in your future. This whole new life just waiting for you out there.
