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.





When asked about my favourite season, I wouldn’t say summer, even though I adore the lazy nights of July when the sun never sets and shoes are no longer a necessity. I wouldn’t say autumn either, even though I love the feeling of burying my face in the biggest scarf from this season’s new collection and how the colours change from green to auburn. I also wouldn’t say winter, even though it makes me indescribably happy when snow starts to fall from the clouds like dizzy ballerinas and the Christmas lights are being lit all over the world. No, I will always say spring, because of the soft light that’s reserved for April only, that gently knocks on your window and reminds you that it’s never too late for new beginnings.
