Spring– it’s here!

It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want– oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! — Mark Twain


By the time I get back to San Diego, it will officially be spring. Spring break, spring quarter, spring flings, spring fever.

Did you know it was Mark Twain who started “spring fever” with that quote? Of course it would be Twain. Freaking Twain– he has all the good ideas.

Well, I don’t know what the big deal is with spring. It’s just another season. Yes, flowers tend to bloom (conveniently) during springtime. True, the sun is out and I guess the world seems a whole lot brighter that way. And everyone’s wearing skirts and shorts and in the sun everyone looks so good and all that just has to mean happiness, right?

I’m sure it comes down to something scientific and chemical, or something really innate and carnal. Like all the animals start to hear the call of the wild or something. I’d like to think we’re a people above the scheming manipulations of nature, but it’s probably true. All the emotions and the hormones and the flowers and the sun. That’s life. It’s springtime, and I shall accept it for what it is. Hmmm…

Haha. Just kidding– I actually love spring. I think this is going to be a great season. Bring on the sunshine!
