S2 Scribble #7: Friday I’m in Love

“Monday you can hold your head,”

After a very busy semester, I’ve had a pleasantly quiet week and am looking forward to a fun weekend and a very restful time spent at home for Thanksgiving Break! During this past week, I’ve had more time to spend with friends. I’ve had a few fun moments that have, coincidentally, revolved around a shared love of The Cure.

“Tuesday, Wednesday, stay in bed,”

The song Friday I’m in Love never fails to make me happy, and, hey, it’s actually Friday today! The Cure’s music has many of my positive memories attached to it – it makes me think of my mom and I dancing around the kitchen, it makes me think of my friend and I sitting in my room for hours playing the guitar, it makes me think of another friend who I have had many near-silent singalongs with on bus rides this semester.

“Or Thursday watch the walls instead,”

This semester has not exactly gone smoothly, yet slowly but surely I’ve been feeling better, happier, and more like myself. Having songs that make me happy regardless of circumstance always helps me remember that with every rough patch, there are plenty of things to be grateful for and plenty of wonderful memories yet to be made. Going home will be a nice mental break, and I look forward to coming back to Michigan with a renewed energy and sense of purpose to finish out the semester strong!

“It’s Friday, I’m in love.”
