100 Words or Less: On Summer Vacation

Summer Vacation

Vacation. With the sun shining down on you, you feel more alive than you have in a long time. You laugh and enjoy yourself. The worries and stress of everyday life mean nothing to you now. You live in the moment and it feels wonderful. The week ends. Your vacation is over. You head back home to your cramped home and dead-end job. The joy leaves you and is replaced by the soul-crushing realization that nothing has really changed. You are still the same; your life is the same. There is little to make you happy. Welcome home.
