I’m having a difficult time transitioning into the fall season. It’s not that I don’t think the colourful leaves and the crisp air aren’t wonderful, but I wanna remain living in the warm, sunny, daydream world that I had been creating in my head all summer. You know, laying in the soft grass, basking under a sunset, while wearing cream-coloured linen culottes and a pale yellow crop top. Sleeping in until whenever and only getting out of bed to go swimming, read piles of books, bike down country roads, or listen to jazz music out on a patio while sipping lavender-infused sparkling lemonade all day. Oh, and you don’t even have to wear a watch in this world. Time? Never heard of her. I mean, I know none of this really happened to me this summer, and I know it may seem like I could probably continue to live out this dream in my head; but I gotta tell you, the rain, the shorter days, and the cloudy skies are making it difficult for me to think about those kind of things anymore. I love you fall, I do, but I really want my unrealistic summer daydreams back.
