Summer always makes me reevaluate my life, my decisions, basically my being as a whole and it gives me the time and energy I need to redirect my choices towards the path I want to be on. After a rough year, I'm throughly enjoying my laid-back, low-key schedule thus far and am happily loving my classes, my routine, my sleep schedule (8+ hours/night, what a luxury!), and my general aloneness. And all this extra time makes me think, a lot. Probably too much.

Looking back on my year, and the last few ones that passed by, I can pick and choose my "happiest" moments in time much like I pick out my favorite photos from my SD card, these moments are engraved into my memories like a snapshot, ready to be enlarged at any given time. I realize that these moments, as fleeting and insignificant as they seemed at the time, are what I cherish above all, and yes, that does include my shoes. They carry me through the tough times and help me appreciate what matter most in my life. As Ferris Bueller once eloquently said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

I think you have a great ability to reflect and this is what makes you realise how good we have it. Memories are wonderful, even if they will always be in the past.

Whimisically,
