My Last High School Summer…

Mixed feelings: I remember in the past how when summer was coming to a close, I would be sad that school was going to be back in session so soon. Summers were always great—sleeping in late, hanging with friends, and enjoying the beautiful summer weather. This summer is so much different. The biggest difference really[…]
