We may still have two weeks of school left, but I think my brain is already on summer vacation.

I want to sleep late, stay up even later, and  lounge in my jammies ’til noon sipping cold drinks on the deck.

I want to read for fun, not because I need to learn physics in order to help Charlie with homework.

I want to binge watch Mad Men on netflix, and I want to eat malted chocolate cake  for dessert every night.
