Summer Vacation

| writing | school | life |

Dear Summer Vacation,

I am writing you this letter to inform you, with regret, that once again we will not be spending any time together this year. I know that I have not been the best friend over the last four years, but the Navy and college have taken a lot of time away from me and we have not been able to spend the quality time together like we used to in my youth.

Unfortunately, nothing has changed and once again this year instead of enjoying the sun, swimming, hiking, partying, and dancing. I will be trapped at home, or a library, or a coffee shop slaving away at another twelve credit course load.

I look forward to the day that we will meet again. I hope you have a wonderful time, and send me lots of post cards of all of the adventures that you get into, that I will be missing out on. I promise that I will try hard to spend time with you next year.

Wishing all the best,


Thank you for reading! Share your thoughts with me on mastodon or via email.
