Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.

Today is my first day of school for the spring semester.

I get all silly and giggly when it comes to my first day of class. I have no idea why. I'm taking Interpersonal Communications and Human Anatomy & Physiology 1 -- who could honestly be excited about that?

But I am.
I find JOY in buying packs of college-ruled paper, sticky notes, colorful pens and stylish binders. 
I find JOY in sitting in class taking notes on the first day over useless rules/information.
I find JOY in knowledge.

I also find it kind of funny how quickly this excitement fades.
But still.
I love the beginning of semesters. 
I love buying school supplies.
It makes me happy!

I LOVE the beginning of semesters, too! I love school supplies and theres this certain feeling of being organized and on top of these that feels so good! And I know this is weird, but I LOVE the smell of books. Like, LOVE it.
