Bushels of Tumbling Emotions

I am reading this book right now and came across this quotable passage last night. I thought it was the perfect description of how the students at my school have been acting now that there are only six weeks left of school. Let me know if you agree. 

"We middle-schooler had been pretty rowdy during the final weeks, shouting, racing down halls and across campus, pulling pranks. It was as if we had bushels of tumbling emotions and energy to get rid of, and we dumped them out whenever and however we could."

- Domenica Santolina Doone, the main character in Sharon Creech's Bloomability.
