The “spring ahead” time change happens tonight, and I couldn’t help but notice while walking my dogs that spring is in full bloom. Over the course of the past week the flowers have popped up, flowering trees seem to have come into full bloom overnight, and as sappy as it may sounds I feel like I have a new energy. With the days getting longer and warmer, I can’t help but feel excited about graduation and invigorated by the beautiful weather. This is my first spring in North Carolina and it is gorgeous, nothing like the long cold rainy spring days of the midwest. Although my spring-time energy may not be channeled into homework at the moment, it’s nonetheless an invigorating, beautiful, and motivating feeling that these warm days bring about.
