Summer Feelings

These hot humid days remind me of when I was a kid in the summer and I'd get upset that I couldn't just sleep late and play video games because I always had something to do. From early morning family plans, to swimming lessons, to whatever sports my mom had signed me up for, I strangely always felt like I'd rather do anything other than be outside. Now I wish I could go back to those days, I want to wake up at 6 and go to the beach before the crowds get there, we'd always leave for lunch and usually go to the pool around the time they'd all show up anyway.  I'd even be okay with all the swimming lessons and hot sweaty sports that were sometimes on the agenda.  Hell, I'd even settle for the few years I had summer school and would walk home in the heat from the neighboring town. The more I think of it the more I wish I could always be doing something, anything outside.  I'm not sure if it's just how carefree I was able to be back then that I'd love to get back, my disdain for my current situation, or if it's just extreme nostalgia hitting me, but I can't express what I would give to be able to live that life again.
