another sun soaked season fades away
Can you believe summer is ending?! What the heck? I have had an adventurous summer, boy have I.
The first few days felt sort of like it's own summer. I remember it being so hectic realizing I had nothing to take with me across the country, I remember going to one of Ali Harrison's famous parties and I remember planning my own goodbye karaoke party so I could see my friends one last time.
Then came June 1. Waking up to Sarah coming and giving me Crazy Cores and Powerade. Getting to the airport and my mom wanting me to call Anjie. I didn't want to do that, oh no. I remember my mom telling Anjie that I would eat anything. (Anjie soon learned that I wouldn't) Oh the Chicago Airport! I sat there for 3 hours, and I even watched "A Cinderella Story". When I got to BWI, I called Eric. I had a trouble finding him and his super nice car. We drove, I remember stopping at a gas station. As he went inside I remember thinking, what the heck? This is my family this summer. The first night was... interesting. I was so overly welcomed I didn't know what to do. The house was huge and I was living with strangers. My room was amazing and I saw fireflies for the first time.
Overtime, the Martinis family became my own. I spent so much time with Finn, Gabe, Tate and Coleman. I love them all. I miss them. Anjie would listen to me talk about work and Eric treated me like a princess. Well let's be real, they both did. I started working at Calleva and didn't know what the heck I got myself in to. Calleva soon became my summer. And parts of me even miss it now. Maryland was quite the experience. I wouldn't trade it for anything. It was a hard experience. But it was a great experience. There aren't words to describe each thing I did, sometimes it's hard to explain memories.
Then I came home, surprised my friends, and lived the last few weeks. I was happy to be home but now I miss my Maryland freedom. :)
I would have to say this has been the most different, wonderful, experience of a summer I could ask for.
Hello my name is Mayson and I am a senior in high school. What the heck? When did this happen?
