I hope all of you had a wonderful fourth of July! My family normally doesn't do much for this particular holiday, except for the occasional trip to the fireworks show in my town. This year, my friends and I had a cookout together complete with hot dogs, hamburgers, and patriotic desserts. Afterward, we went an open grassy area near the facility where they hold fireworks and played bags, with blankets spread out over the ground (and even more dessert!). After the fireworks were over, we sat around a fire pit in my friend's backyard, eating s'mores and talking until almost one in the morning. It was so much fun, and it makes me sad that we've never done anything like that until now.
My group of friends has become closer than ever this summer. Maybe it's because it's our last summer together before college, or maybe it's by some coincidence. Either way, it's going to be bittersweet leaving everyone once August rolls around.
