Summer vacation is done, and I'm ... glad

August 21, 2007|By EVA NIESSNER

Summer seems like heaven when that last bell rings and you leave the teachers behind while they have to sit there, sharpening their teeth and finishing your grades. But after awhile, the days get so stale. Ice cream! Sleeping until noon! Sleepovers every night! That is nice for about a month. But it doesn't last.

You sit on your couch, which by now has a permanent groove from your long hours of sitting, and you watch some show about how one of the former members of 'N Sync bought a house with a grotto and bowling alley in it. Or if you're actually out doing something - sports, shopping, etc. - it still feels like you've done it a million times.

I'm ready to go back to school because I want to see the friends that I haven't caught up with since June. If you aren't able to keep in touch with everyone over the summer, you'll be able to see how much they've changed in 10 weeks.

Also, school gives you a place to show off your personal style, meet new people in clubs, and catch up on school gossip.

School gives my life a little structure and variety. While I'm not a fan of waking up early or doing homework, at least you're going somewhere where you can see your friends and always know you're doing something different each day.

And when you're going to school, you appreciate the weekends and days off more, rather than just getting bored out of your mind.

Summer is great for awhile, but I'm ready - despite the burden of homework and the potential for getting spiteful teachers - to go back to school.
