You’ve Got Mail with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks is my very favorite movie. I literally watch it every other week and it seems impossible for me to get tired of it.
The reason I bring up this move is because I have had this quote from Tom Hanks in my head all week. It is fall! Can you believe it?! Even though I am always really excited for fall, it seems to creep up on me an then just happen over night! But don’t worry, I’m not complaining, I love fall.
Another reason this quote has been in my head is because I have been literally gathering my school supplies and ‘newly sharpened pencils.’ This year I decided to go back to school for Graphic Design (you can read my other post on this subject here) and I am so excited about it! I am a little nervous too. I haven’t been in school for awhile so I think it will be an adjustment for me. And even more than that, I am taking a drawing class – so intimidating! It is scary but I know it is good for me too. Everyone needs a good challenge here and there – right?
As I have been gathering my school supplies and thinking about school, it has reminded me of my childhood. I used to love back to school shopping. Did you? It was so fun to receive your supply list from your teacher and pick out new treasures like a beautiful box of crayons or a pencil pouch. (Do kids still call it that and do they even get them anymore?) Tom Hank’s reference to school supplies seems to mean more to me now than all the millions of other times I have heard it in the past. Thank you Tom!
Well, here is to fall and change and school supplies! Cheers!
