I’ve said it before, I’m going to say it again: I don’t take well to change. I’m all about getting comfortable, falling into the snug mould of a routine and doing things by force of habit. Not always good, I know. But its the way I work and for the large part, it keeps me ticking. Though today there’s that strange feeling like something’s bubbling under. And I’m quite amused at how the last working day of the financial year that is today, is taking me back to that forgotten feeling of the last day of the school term.
That lazy feeling of things winding down, and not wanting to start anything new. That flurry of last minute good-byes before people leave for summer holidays. The sweltering heat creeping up on us, that we choose to ignore and go all out to spend time with each other, chat a little and grab the last bits of togetherness.
In a few days there will be what feels like the proverbial end-of-term class party. Its strange, there are too many parallels. And no matter that we will all be right back on Monday, it feels like we’re going to come back to a fresh term, with the crisp new notebooks and spanking new attitude. Oh and also, our rooms will be shuffled, teams mixed up a bit. Together we will move into our new shoes, a size bigger for some, and slip into the new comfort zones we will create for ourselves.
So on a lazy day like today, where I can’t decide if I should get my feet out of the nostalgia and into the newness, I’m stuck with this song on loop, and it feels kind of poetic for this moment.
See you on the other side.
