When the Snow Melts
While all the other seniors are eager to graduate high school, Mysha isn't. She can't help but want to return to the days when the end of the school year meant long days of just playing with friends. Now all she has to look forward to is AP exams, leaving her friends for college, and job hunting. Torn between playing in the snow on the last "snow days" of her life and being present in the moment, Mysha struggles to accept that she must grow up or be left behind.
I first got the idea for "When the Snow Melts" when I was in high school myself. I found it odd how much my peers hated getting snow days when it was the last snow days we would ever get. Now that I'm out of college, I actually relate to Mysha's anxieties even more.
