I always get super nostalgic this time of year. This is my 5th summer where I don’t have a “last day of school” and that sense of freedom for 3 months to work a part time job and relax most of my days away. I often think about what it was like to have summers when I was 9, 10, 11, 12, etc. When the best part of my day was playing in the backyard or kickball in the street with the neighbors. Nowadays I sit in my office at work and think about what I can do during my miniature summer breaks at the end of each week to try to get back as much of that nostalgic feeling as possible.
