Away from School

Today at DVerse, it is haibun Monday, and the theme is, appropriately, “back to school.” I am happy to be out of school, since even though there were aspects of it that I liked, it would also generate so much anxiety and overwhelm. At the same time, here I am post-college, and there’s still a ton of anxiety and depression, so life’s probably not any better. Anyway, I wasn’t going to post this haibun, but today is one of those days when I probably won’t write anything better, so here you go.


I went to Hawaii with my family 2 Augusts ago. We left near the end of the month, so I was concerned that we wouldn’t be back in time for the start of the new semester. Then I remembered: I’d graduated the previous spring and didn’t need to worry about that anymore.
