I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
a window and a pigeon with a broken wing;
You can spend your whole life working for something
just to have it taken away...
But love will come set me free,
love will come set me free
I do believe!
Love will come set me free,
I know it will.

A lot of things have changed this year.
I always look back on the school year around this time--and here is what it came down too...

People have grown up.
People have...what is the opposite of grown up?

People have traveled across the world.
People have become secluded.

People have fallen in love.
People have had their heart torn apart.

People have reached out to me.
People have turned their backs on me.

People have been awaken.
People have fallen asleep.

People have laughed with me.
People have cried with me.

But the one thing I love about summer is I get a chance to

Last summer, I went to Tanzania and my life was changed. I think that trip served as a catalyst for my entire year, because I grew more this year than I have any other time in my life.

I guess this blog is written with hope of having another life-changing summer. It doesn't matter that I won't be traveling around the world or doing anything extravagant...because I think this summer is going to be a time of learning from friends.

I cannot wait for the awkward summer night moments, the pool parties and BBQs that turn into ridiculous sleepovers, the late-night food runs that are so unhealthy--but SO fun, the drives down PCH & (hopefully) to Yorbs, the after-church yogurt sessions where we run into high school buddies, the craziness of summer camps and such, but most importantly all the new things that I will experince this summer.

So here's to 3 months of whatever.
May it be blessed.


(PS. I noticed a lot of the summer activities we do...involved food. HA)
