I was going through old lj entries when I came across one titled "Head or heart, head or heart, head... heart...?" I read it and the last paragraph said this:
"I want this summer to be AMAZING. I want this summer to be the summer I remember forever."
This, of course, referring to summer 2008.
And it was. And it will be.
I loved that summer. And I miss it sometimes. Like trying to get Sam to admit who she likes at my expense. And playing catch phrase with Karla's mom even though she talks far too slow for her to be wanted on either team. Or Steph bringing us blue surprises and then drawing fake tattoos on each other and going to FamVid. And Jill and Marissa hiding behind every corner trying to scare someone. Or swimming for endless hours and shark and cooking and fireworks and friends.
I think 2008 was just a great year. It just was. Good things happened. And bad things happened which led to better things happening. Friends were made and hearts were mended. And I want to remember the last part of my Junior year, the whole summer, and the first part of my Senior year forever.
Boo to endings.
