Perhaps the best part of life in a world where winter means long walks through the slush and five layers of clothing is the AMAZINGNESS that is springtime. Had a bad day? Students not pay attention? Twist your ankle on a sneaky sidewalk hole? Accidentally wipe chalk dust all over your freshly hand-laundered black pants? WHO CARES? It’s beautiful outside! You can feel the sun burning on your hair, your feet heat up, your pores remember what it is to sweat again. Soon you will hate that you have to wash sweaty clothes more often, and that the meat market is now openly, in-your-face unsanitary, but right now, with your neck starting to bake and your eyes watering, life feels oh so right. And walking outside in the sunshine is suddenly something to write about.
