It's Spring!


Sure is spring when the air smells sweet while trudging back home from university ... [or is it just because uni's over for the day?!] ... when you notice tiny new red leaves on a tree ... when daisies suddenly spring up in your back yard ... yaay it's spring!

Spring?! It's spring over there? Am I forgetting the laws of science or something? Lol it's fall here. And i'm barely figuring out what uni meant, I've seen it multiple times and did not know what it was. Haha uni=university yay i learned something new!

we call fall autumn :) sorryyyy i should've explained what uni meant!! i really didn't realise that there'd be many differences!

Hahah silly me I forgot about that. I'm jealous, I love cold weather. It's been almost 100 degrees here in Los Angeles. There are soo many differences in language in different cultures! I love that, it's so interesting to see how things can mean one thing here but something very different somewhere else. Oh yeah, what's your e-mail? I need to ask you something about the photo-a-day blog!
