As a kid, were you happy or anxious about going back to school? Now that you’re older, how has your attitude toward the end of the summer evolved?

When I was a child, it was tricky because as any child would, I looked forward to my birthday and coincidentally it happens to fall in August, August 7th to be exact, so I would be looking forward to it, but on August 8th I always wanted to go back to the very beginning of summer because after August 8th, the countdown to school began and who ever wanted that?

These days I don’t count the days until my birthday, I am always happy to add another year under my belt, a luxury not afforded to everyone, and something to be intensely grateful for, but I don’t relish the end of summer because I do not look forward to the upcoming cold days, colder nights, and consequently the shorter days and longer nights.

I love this weather, though it is odd to have an August be so enjoyable; airy and warmish, definitely not soupy as is usually the case. The entire month of August has been glorious and I am sad to see it end. 😦
