On Most Days

on most days there are more vintage clothes in my backpack to sell to girls at school than there are textbooks

on most days when i come home from school i ditch plans to my guitar once i’m home alone

on most days i’m counting down the months or weeks i have until I get to move north, closer to San Francisco and Yosemite, where the hills are actually green and flowers bloom by the oceanside

i’d rather spend break between psychology and calculus sitting in the sun listening to music than make small conversations with people in the halls

i’d rather spend class periods watching the clouds roll past the windows in the rising sun sky at 7 in the morning

i’d rather spend my nights writing in my journal than writing study guides

i’d rather listen to the melodies swarming my head during class than listen to my teacher’s lectures

i’ve realized that maybe school just isn’t for me and maybe i’m meant to do more than waste 6 hours a day in a classroom. maybe that isn’t such a bad thing at all.

songs to get you through a day of high school:

– drag by day wave

– marcel by her’s

– she’s gonna leave you by the walters

– wait for me by swim mountain

– paint me silver by pond

 

don’t take high school so seriously

with love,

  2. This was such a great post and even though I’m not in highschool anymore, once you leave the world is your oyster and you’ll quickly realise that – life is so much more than spending every day inside 4 blank walls xx
