quickly doth the springtime come




a RESOUNDING yes yes yes!!!

i can SMELL the spring in the air. the air is pregnant with spring. the bone-chilling, well, chill has lost it's teeth and you can tell the sunlight is no longer a winter sunlight but a spring/summer WARM sunlight. JOY TO THE WORLD. I LOVE SPRING!!! so i'll start with some quotes. since i love quotes almost as much as i love spring.

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush. ~Doug Larson

this is what the weather is like in cheongju right now. i hear of snow in other places in korea but here the sun is warm while the wind is still cold.
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" ~Robin Williams

and this just might explain a lot about me, if we assume the person born in the month also has certain characteristics attributed to that month:
April comes like an idiot, babbling and strewing flowers. ~EDNA ST. VINCENT MILLAY

my walks to and from school have been lovely. the air is starting to warm up and just the anticipation of spring gets me all giddy and full of happiness. i love nothing (that i can think of right now) as much as i love spring. spring is the time of my patchwork coach ballet flats, yellow rose antiquey purse, my birthday, pretty flowers, green green grass, and preppy pastel colors. i LOVE spring!

on a sadder note, i miss my old house and my old backyard. the backyard was sooo pretty and had the BEST spring flowers: crocuses, daffodils, and tulips. also, a huge bush of forsythia. annnnnd under my window was a hedgerow of lavender and that just smelled divine. but that was later on, in the thick of summer.

나리나리 개나리~~~

i guess you can say i've been in a chipper mood lately, since coming back from home. my head english teacher picked up on that today. she said my face is a lot happier and more relaxed seeming after my trip home. part of it is in knowing how quickly these next few months will fly by.

march: not teaching this week, with only 3 weeks and special classes and no afterschool camp it'll fly by mostly from the novelty and the rush of diving back into things

april: starts with jeju conference, followed by my bday triduum, election day off-no classes, and SPRING weather!!!

may: 2 long weekends (that i don't really feel the effects of since i have no class on mondays anyway), ashley's visit!!!

june: a super long 4 day weekend and preparations to return home!!!

july 1st: my official last day of teaching due to how early columbia law starts

And spring is followed by summer!

"Summer here comes on like a zaftig hippie chick, jazzed on chlorophyll and flinging fistfuls of butterflies to the sun."
