My body aches for summer, but I’m finding comfort in brisk walks, cooking spicy meals, drinking large mugs of tea and bundling myself up with my boyfriend.
This morning I rode the streetcar to school as the sun was rising. The stores were closed, and the streets were silent and still.
When I came home after school a man came to the door with a package for me. The rest of my books I received for Christmas arrived. By the time I'm done reading these books winter should be over and I'll be happily strutting around without a winter jacket again.
Until then, you can find me hurrying down the street with a scarf wrapped around my face, hands in my pocket, or riding the streetcar in the morning sun.
