Ready to go...but can't

Although it is still summer, all my friends are at school

And I'm here thinking: "quarter system, why you so cruel?"

I was looking forward to the longest summer yet,

But hearing others' fun stories just makes me upset

I am thrilled for the night life, the people, the food

Anything but home will help life my mood

I'm ready to start, to begin this next phase

But I am still waiting, still waiting for days
