these past few weeks i have been coming home from school and long boarding with my good pal, max. and on the weekends i wake up at eleven, call him, and meet him at his house and ride for at least four hours. we have found many hidden places and i didnt know my town could be so peaceful and, beautiful actually. i pick flowers along the way and take as many pictures as i can because, even though it’s impossible, i never want to forget these wonderful little things i have been seeing. i haven’t been this happy since last year and it feels amazing. max is a great friend and im very upset with myself that i did not realize sooner. every time im with him, it’s no surprise to me when im crying from laughter and i can be the most and happiest “me” i can be. he has taught me that the tough times will always pass and they won’t hurt so much forever and i have taught him to love spring and the plants growing. he reminded me that you don’t need someone to make you happy, it’s amazing to have someone help you, but sometimes you just have to close your eyes feel the wind with a flower in your hair and let it awaken you. and when you fall off and feel the burning pain, you remember you can feel and that you’re human and it’s possible to feel this alive. it’s good to listen to the flowers and the trees speak and take notice to how beautiful the earth can really be, but we all worry about grades, sleep, relationships, etc. but take some time out and just sit in an open field and just look up and feel the earth spinning and think that you’re as beautiful as the sky and you can always make it through anything. i added these pictures because today, i was in my second sun shower in my lifetime and they are my new favorite thing, i was in love with seeing the rain while the sun shinned upon me. and then i fell off a slide and max took a picture at the perfect time while i was laughing. and lastly, we’re always looking at the time to see how much farther we can go until the sun sets and the picture was taken at 7:50pm, with ten minutes of daylight we can still use to see unknown things.
I should get back to work.
