It’s a shame I can’t watch meteor showers. My parents always go on and on about how dangerous it is to be outside at 3am. The first and only time I’ve seen one was in 3rd grade, when my relatives and I viewed a meteor shower together.
That experience wasn’t enough. Back then, I hadn’t gotten glasses yet, and although I could still see pretty well without them, I know I wasn’t able to fully appreciate the view.
I’m hoping that next summer, when I’ve graduated from high school, my parents will loosen their tight reign on me and allow me the opportunity to experience a second, long overdue meteor shower.
