I can't wait for it to be winter

So...summer comes to end. It was an interesting one to say the least. Tomorrow, I go to the first day of the rest of my life, as Britta put it. I'm actually kind of excited, even if it is school, and my senior year. In a way, it kind of sucks that I skipped a grade. haha. I wish I wasn't graduating, cause if at this time last year, I was as determined as I am, things would've turned out a lot better than they did grade-wise. Now I have a bunch of credits to make up if I want to graduate, plus get good grades in all my current classes. It's gonna be tough, but I'm sure I can do it. I will need everyone's help though to get through it, so everyone that is reading this, keep getting on my case about my grades please. pleasey please. (I use a lot of commas...)

We didn't do a lot of things we said we were going to do this summer, including the things I wasn't included in. How about all the stuff we say we're gonna do this school year and stuff, we actually take action and do? Okay, that sounds like a good idea. Everyone's gonna be busy with school, I know that, but it's not like it takes up every minute of everyday like everyone makes it seem like, if you really want time to do things, you have to find it.

One of the things everyone has to do is ski or snowboard! A lot of you are seniors and this is the last year to take advantage of cheap season passes. If you don't, you'll end up paying 500 dollars for a pass next year wishing you'd done it this year. We have to really take advantage of living here too, there really is a ton of stuff to do around these parts, but we never do any of it. I think everyone needs to live a little more.

Well, that's my ramble for now, most of you know this song, it's Tonight, Tonight by Smashing Pumpkins:

Time is never time at all
You can never ever leave
without leaving a piece of youth

And our lives are forever changed
We will never be the same
The more you change the less you feel

Believe, believe in me, believe
Believe that life can change
That you're not stuck in vain
We're not the same, we're different tonight
Tonight, so bright

And you know you're never sure
But you're sure you could be right
If you held yourself up to the light
And the embers never fade in your city by the lake
The place where you were born

Believe, believe in me, believe
Believe in the resolute urgency of now
And if you believe there's not a chance tonight
Tonight, so bright

We'll crucify the insincere tonight
We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
We'll find a way to offer up the night tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight
The impossible is possible tonight
Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

The first verse is obviously talking about growing up, so it's rather appropriate. Then there's the part about the "city by the lake/the place where you were born", It's obviously talking about SLC cause a lot of you were born around the area. Then it reminds me a lot of finally going into senior year...*sigh*
