It's nice to have a break.
In the past few months, my classmates and I have gone through some seriously intense work. Projects to finish, multiple AP tests to study for, SAT tests on top of that. But in retrospective, that's fine. While it may be insufferably drab to have to study and learn while the first rays of the spring sun break through the nearby forest canopy, at least we can now appreciate the latter. This may have been said time and time again, but without the bad, you wouldn't be able to make out the good. And I can attest to at least that much - the newly arrived summer here in Vilnius is amazing.
It's the weather I love. The randomness and unpredictability breaks away from the typical routine of school (which, even after all the toil and sweat, we still have to attend). It gives you something to hold on to, a chance to look forward to the free afternoon. One minute it is sunny and bright, with a soft, cool breeze. The next, cloud cover shrouds the world in a shade. And not a minute later, thunder rolls across the heavens, and water begins pouring, racing out from above.
Last evening, I got home completely drenched. My sweater is still damp this very minute. I love it.
