little memories

In-between moments. Those times where the house is silent and all you can hear is the chirping of the crickets. Or a freshly baked batch of chocolate chip cookies cooling on the kitchen counter. Little moments when you and your friend can not stop smiling or when you complete your final math class for the year. Laughter that echoes off the ceiling and music that explains everything you feel inside. Sunshine that makes you feel happy and memories that you will cherish forever. Every smile, every tear, every sound of laughter. These are all things that tend to get lost in the day-to-day.
To be quite honest with you, life has been overwhelming lately. Final exams are just around the corner, and the beginning of Summer is just within reach. Besides being incredibly stressed for finals (missing a total of 5 weeks of school is making studying much harder!), I am thrilled to see what the future holds. It's difficult to stay calm and focused while the sun is bright and shining, and while the weather is gorgeous. But I must say that remembering to appreciate these little memories, these little moments is making everything far less tedious.
