The first day you can actually walk outside and unzip your coat because the sun is just so bright! The anticipation in the air that always follows spring’s arrival, that makes the air even more electric than usual. When everyone just have to laugh longer and louder than yesterday and no bad word is spoken, because who would on a day like this. The day you change from boots to sneakers, from hats and scarfs to sunglasses. When you walk through campus and have to stop and turn your face towards the sun, because you haven’t been able to do just that for a very long time. On the day that everything just seems cleaner, prettier, newer, and you remove your headphones to listen to world wake up from it’s season long slumber.
Today is that day. Today is officially the first day of spring.
