Happy First Day of School!

Today my heart goes out to all my teacher friends. In alot of places it's the first day of school. I know several of you teachers in the blog world, some BFFs in the real world, heck, even my momma!

A part of me has a spiteful smirk about all of you having to get back to work after a summer of relaxation, but really I'm just feeling nostalgic about the whole back to school experience. I remember the nervousness of first day. I love an annual fresh start. I should try to replicate it in my adult life. 

There are some of the things I really miss about school days:
  • First day butterflies. In high school I think about my outfit for weeks. Recently I was headed out for the night and tried on around 7825416 outfits. I guess not much has changed on that front.
  • Best pals all around. One of my favorite memories of high school is getting to gab with my friends throughout the day. I loved the between-classes, 5-minute gossip summit every day. I guess I still sort of do that with my favorites via internet during the work day, but not the same.
  • Backpacks. I love a backpack. I wish I could carry one around with me everyday. I guess I could, but I'm trying to be a marginally attractive adult female.
  • School supplies. Fresh pencils, notebooks and markers have always excited me. I have a feeling times have changed a little:
  • Summer and winter breaks. Enough said.
Also, some of my favorite cinematic nuggets take place in schools:





On a related note, a recent favorite teacher, who I know in the real world, always begins a new semester with a joke. This was the choice for today:

What kind of clothes do clouds wear?
THUNDER-WEAR.

Giggles galore. Happy first day, teachers!

For the rest of us, happy another Monday....WOMP, WOMP.

  2. I loved school clothes! Sometimes I wish I could just be a student forever. It beats having a job!
