Things to Look Forward to


I’ve just begun the stressful plunge into coursework, but when I call home my grandmother is already listing the things she plans to cook for me in the winter and my mom is anticipating sharing a popular TV show with me during vacation. As far as they are concerned, classes are a minor interruption and soon I will be going home.




It’s almost October but after the bout of coldness a week ago, it’s gone back to being a season for shorts and T-shirts. I’m very happy about the temperature, even if it rains. It’s easier to be lighthearted without having to carry a coat around.
