Transitional Season10:20 AM
During my second semester at Oakland University, I took a modern poetry course. I remember all of us students getting excited for spring break (during February, because cruel), while our professor was planning on heading out to a cottage on Lake Michigan to grade our term papers. He started to talk about how he loved walking along the freezing-cold beach to clear his mind, when he randomly asked a few students what their favorite seasons were. Most said summer, I of course said autumn. He then mentioned that in his youth, he always loved fall, mostly because everything was beautiful as it was dying, but as he became older, he really began to appreciate spring.
I don't think that I have gotten there yet, however, I feel that I am the epitome of "transitional" at the moment. The process of weeding out the junk food and replacing it with healthier, better foods has been a fun, but trying one. Last night I had every intention on making Kyle and I a healthy dinner with plenty of leftovers, (because cooking every single day is never going to happen), but I was tired, so we picked up a pizza. I am still in the seemingly never-ending process of cleaning/organizing our house, and am terrified of what is going to happen when I finally get to the basement and garage. Meanwhile, Kyle is fearing that I have gone "full-hippe" (he kids), on account of me making my own cleaning/beauty supplies.I am waiting for my new pair of glasses to arrive (any day now), and there is also my awkward, half-grown out pixie/bob/whatever hair that I am dealing with. Gross.
This spring is turning out to be one full of projects, and I think that is something that I really need at this point in my life. I am in a place where I want to create things, I want to get rid of all of the excess junk in my life, and become a better person. I am slowly learning that once you take care of your environment, and yourself, you become better to those around you. Hopefully by summer I will have a good chunk of this down, but until then I will keep trying.
PS-Those of you in Portland who keep posting beautiful, blossoming trees all over my instagram feed while here in Michigan we have snow flurries, I hate you.
