So Surreal a Summer

It still hasn’t quite hit me that it’s summer. It’s a Sunday. I still don’t feel like I don’t have to go to school tomorrow. It’s still odd not having homework. When I went to the zoo last Friday, it hadn’t even hit me then. The day felt like a fluke, even though Kill Bill Fest had preceded it. There’s still some lingering feeling. I’ve been too used to too much work for too long. Will I ever get over it? Will I ever realize that it’s summer?

This summer hit me differently than all others. Before, I had always counted down the days. This time, I had no time to count down the days. I couldn’t afford to get my hopes up before the work was finished. Now, the work is finished. Yet still, that lingering…

Tomorrow is Monday. I hope it hits me then.
