First Day Jitters -- An Ode to the First Day

I have always had a special place in my heart for school.  
Although it can be the most frustrating place, the loneliest place and even the place you hate to be, 
it can also be a gathering place, an exciting place and a place of victory. 
School is a place where your dreams thrive; 
where anything you want to be seems possible.  
School is a safe haven of friendships and experiences, 
it guards your heart and your precious aspirations from the bleak, harsh reality of the real world.  
It's a place where, for 17 or more years of your life, 
you live and breath and bloom.

Here's to the first day of school;  
may it bring wonder, smiles and a deep rooted joy in our expectations.

Happy classes,
