Spring Has Sprung, and I Feel Like I’ve Been Jumped :)

So, it’s undeniable, be it from the coat of yellow dust that is already appearing on every available outdoor surface to the blots of color that are continuously appearing around every corner: Spring has definitely arrived. And, despite what some of my previously published writing may have you believe, I am not the biggest fan of Spring, as a season or a concept. 

As a season, my problem with Spring is simple and lies in the daffodil colored dust of death that is coating cars and slathering sidewalks. As a long time allergy sufferer, I am bracing for the absolute worst. And, judging by the severe sneezing fit I got from a mere five minute maskless walk in the outdoors yesterday, I am well on my way to allergy anarchy. So, if you see me dorm ridden due to inability to breath or see, don’t worry because I missed History, it wasn’t voluntary, I assure you. 

As a concept, my problems with Spring spam a little more deeply. Frankly, Spring makes me feel panicky. ACT scores are rolling in, school years are wrapping up, graduation is marching forward (for my senior friends) with apathetic ominousness. It’s a time that makes me feel like there is a hummingbird in my chest fluttering me towards a thousand different directions to do a thousand different things. Maybe it’s because I’m not ready to say goodbye to my graduating friends or my first year of MSA itself, but regardless, there’s a stifled desperation behind all of my actions. 

So, if I suddenly seem more interested in spending time with you, or if I’m a little bit hectic, that would be why. I’m rushing to make as many memories as I can, and I’ll happily take anyone I can along for the journey. Just brace for a bit of chaos 🙂

Until next time! 

Sincerely, 

Someone who’s trying to enjoy Spring, despite the pollen and panic.
