hi-ho, hi-ho, it's back to school i go.

back to school.
back to school i go.
first day of school, which also means the last day of summer.
sure, i'm sad to say goodbye to days by the pool, 
bbq dinners, adventures, sunscreen, lazy sunday nights, 
free time, staying up late and sleeping in.
but, boy am i ready to say hello to reading, text books, learning and 
walking around on campus while enjoying the changing of seasons. 
remember being a little kid, so excited for the first day of school?
new outfit, new backpack, new shoes, new teacher....
you are already to go... 
until you realize you've been tossing and turning and can't seem to fall asleep-
all due to a little set of nerves that creep up on you.
i hated that feeling as a kid.
but wait, i still kind of get those jitters the night before.
am i the only one?
maybe i haven't grown up yet.
growing up is overrated,
because let's face it, who doesn't love a new outfit for school?
a fresh new backpack? a pair of adorable ballet flats for campus walking?
and meeting those crazy yet genius professors?
i certainly do.
if never growing up, means i always get to go to school,
or learn something new on a daily basis...
count me in. 
back to school i go. 
happy as can be. 

happy first day of school!
cheers to being in school, textbooks, nerves and learning.


  1. Walking through Target with all their glorious back to school stuff made me sad that I won't be going back! I always loved school shopping and picking out a new outfit for the first day :)

  2. I'm sad that I'm not going back to school this year. First year in 17. I sense a journey to grad school in the near future.

    BUT-I nominated you for a blog award even though you have more followers than allowed. Guess you'll just have to keep the love flowing anyway.

  3. good luck on your first day of school! where are you going to school/what are you studying?

  4. as a lifelong learner and total nerd, i am completely jealous! i miss headed back to school, the scent of fresh and new textbooks (must be the binding glue or the new ink), entering the lecture halls excited, meeting new professors and peers.... love it! enjoy!

  5. Back to school. It's always crazy time.
    But I love it ! Fresh start- new begining :)
    Have a nice day !

  6. that green graphic with the glasses makes me oh so very happy!

  7. I remember getting that same feeling and I would start having dreams that I didn't wake up on time or that my teacher was a weirdo! Haha definitely ridiculous but it would keep me up at night :) Good luck this semester!!

  8. Love your blog and just found it tonight! :) It was also my first day back to school. I'm in grad school getting my Masters in Education and the elementary school I was assigned to for student teaching started back today! Fun times, my friend! Thankfully I have a fun planner that will get me though it!
