It’s been awhile. Yesterday was my last day of school, so now my schedule will be very freed up and mostly dedicated to blog-posting! I am going to miss being in school over the summer. It was like my safe-haven where I could put my creativity and passion for education all into my work. I’m going to miss all of my friends and our weird yet comforting humor. I’m really going to miss all my teachers. English was absolutely my FAVORITE class. It was really the only class I went into wearing a smile on my face every single day. It was the class that encouraged me to start The Legally Brunette Blog, where I met some of my closest friends, and it was the only class where I felt safe and accepted to share every side to me, even the sides of myself that I’m still discovering. It’s only been a few hours since the end of the year, but I already miss it! This summer, I will be doing a lot of traveling, exploring, and most importantly, writing!
So far summer has kicked off with a problem that I needed to solve (as most summers do). Here’s the backstory: My family has been visiting for the past few days all the way from the Caribbean! Living in a cold, bitter climate in the winter, and scorching heat waves in the summer makes my diet much more varied. I noticed, sitting on the drinks/snacks table was a drink that included water and fresh fruit. Let me just say, the taste of sweet citrus mixed with the tartness of lip-pursing lemons do not provide a cool summer refresher. I just couldn’t stand seeing my family members do the classic: give a fake-enough smile covering up your thoughts on the abysmal flavor sprawling down your throat. So I decided to take action, and create a new twist on regular summer lemonade with my cousin/fellow protester. I hope you enjoy this new Tumblr-esque, Insta-worthy Not Your Average Lemonade!
