Paw-Aful and Springy for Spring

By Zach Pawa
Published: April 2011
The spring season has arrived. For some, sports become another item to add to their already full plate of schoolwork, extracurricular, SAT tutoring, and some form of instrumental practice. For others, they become a sense of organization and relief.
I, for one, know that that when I am in season, my work ethic is entirely different. I go to Lacrosse or Soccer practice until around five, and then home to meditate.
When home, I know I do not have time to play NHL 11 for an hour or so, and then go shoot hoops with my neighbors.
I have to work efficiently with little procrastination or else the night will slowly turn to morning, and the chemistry homework sitting atop my desk will miraculously still be blank.
During winter, my offseason is an entirely different story.
I usually go to the gym to train, but when I get home it is still only four in the afternoon. What to do? Quandry.
I want to get my homework done, but I know I have nothing else to do, so what is originally a 30-minute assignment can turn into an hour-plus extravaganza.
Along with the new sense of urgency, the spring season also means spring weather.
Finally, after a winter that lasted an eternity, the snow has melted and the sun is out, allowing me to flaunt my guns for all to see.
The weather has turned and instead of sitting indoors watching Jersey Shore, we can spend some time outdoors.
With the beginning of the third, and final, sports season of the year, another thought is in the back of everyone’s mind (besides the Lacrosse team going to the State tournament this year).
Summer is just around the corner with only about two and one-half months left of school, we are in the final stretch.
So what makes the spring season so enjoyable? I have searched long and hard for an answer to this question, and after years of searching, I found the answer in a small hut located 23 miles southwest of Kyoto, Japan.
The spring season allows you to be outside in the warm weather and get that fresh air that we all crave. It’s trees budding, birds flying. The winter season consists mainly of indoor sports, and by the time you leave school, it is already dark.
The fall season has to compete with kids organizing their schedules to ensure they can achieve an above C average along with the idea that an entire school year is looming ahead.
So Spring is something entirely other,  let’s embrace it, practice hard, play hard, go home do homework (unless you are a senior, so chill, bro), and if you are lucky, you can have an extra hour of daylight to spare.
Enjoy spring while it lasts because soon enough it will be mid July and 90 degrees outside, and you will be looking back on the days when you could sit down without breaking a sweat.
So enjoy the last season of the school year, and come support the Boys’ Lacrosse team.
