Farewell Summer, Greetings.. September

It pains me to write this, but…. summer is over. Well, not officially, but for me, as soon as September comes: bye bye summer. I’m just really sad because summer is my time. I’m just a summer baby and I love the sun and the warmth. Things I dread? Waking up when it’s still dark. Wearing PANTS. Getting out of the shower and be freezing cold. Walking to class in the SNOW. Having to turn my heating blanket up because it’s so cold. Just wearing clothes in general..

You see, I don’t mind going back to University and starting classes (okay, maybe I’m a little upset), but if it were summer all year round, it would be easier to deal with. But instead I live in Ontario, Canada where the snow will reach my ankles and you can see your breath when you step outside. It’s really quite upsetting and I think I’m going to cry now. BUT FIRST, let’s look back at some summer moments:
