The third day of April signified the official end to the spring break and it was now the first day of school after the break. This was a day that Jasmine had been long dreading as it meant no more staying up to the wee hours of the morning and spending her days outside running around neighborhood with her friends. Now she was going back to school which meant nothing but teachers, classwork and then for some odd reason homework.
She was sleeping soundly dreaming about being at her own private concert with just her and Justin Timberlake when the sound of her mom pounding on her bedroom door shattered her dream world and brought her back down to reality. "Jasmine! Up and 'em! Breakfast will be done in thirty, so you better be done and downstairs or you'll be skipping it!" She groaned as she just laid in her bed for a moment looking up at the ceiling "I miss you already Justin," she said with a voice of sadness as she through her covers off her body "Let's get this day started."
Getting up and out of her bed she skipped her way over to her dresser on the opposite end of the room. "What to wear. What to wear" she thought to herself as she rummaged through her drawers trying to find something to wear. Today was going to be a nice spring day and Jasmine didn't feel like wearing a bunch of layers so she decided she would wear a dress. Going through her dresses she picked out a bright and colorful one that was perfect for a spring day such as this. Taking out all of the items for today's apparel she tossed them onto her bed before grabbing her bathroom necessities and heading down the hall to take a shower.
It took her all of her remaining seventeen minutes after getting out of the shower to get dressed and do her hair. There wasn't much that could be done to it in truth but fortunately for her she liked her natural curls and after a couple of brush strokes through it she left it flowing down her back. Looking herself in the full length mirror in her room she ran her hands over her dress adjusting it to make sure it looked right before grabbing her book bag and running downstairs where she could smell the scent of breakfast in the air.
For breakfast her mom had made her favorite which was french toast topped with honey with scrambled eggs and sausages. While she and her dad ate her mother packed up her lunch which was a must seeing as Jasmine hated school lunch. "Do you want me to give you a lift to school today?" her father asked to which Jasmine responded with a shake of her head, "It's the first day back so I'm gonna ride the bus with my friends today." Her father nodded as he drank the last of his coffee rising from his chair "Well then you better hurry up or you'll be missing the bus," Jasmine knowing her father was right scarfed down the rest of her meal before getting up from her seat.
Placing her dishes in the sink she gave her father a hug and after receiving her lunch from her mom she hug and kissed her mother. She could hear the sound of the school bus horn blaring as she stuffed her lunch bag in her book bag "Bye Mom! Bye Dad! Love you guys!" she said as she raced out of her house to make sure she didn't miss the bus. As she got on the bus she said her good mornings to the bus driver and matron before going to back of the bus quietly so she didn't wake up the other kids who had fallen back to sleep on the bus.
