I waited all year for it.
That first kiss from the ocean. The first 40 degree day. Ice cream, cricket, sleeping under the stars, spontaneous road trips, staying in your swimmers all day, gingerbeer, that quintessential summer experience. I slogged away through the long winter months, waiting, waiting, waiting, and finally, it came. Tomorrow signifies the beginning of my school year for 2014, and with it, the end of my sun-kissed Summer.
It was a good one. I went overseas for the first time, I recorded an EP, I rode on a motorbike, I took Polaroids, I slept in a cabin without a wall and sailed on Wivenhoe with some of my favourite people. I went to the beach, I went horse riding, and lived and laughed like I haven't for a very long time.
"We wandered in a frenzy and a dream."
- Jack Kerouac, On The Road
To all you kids who have already started up again, or who are tomorrow like me, stay gold. This is our year, let's do this.
