Today’s a very sad day for a lot of people.
Look around you…People are not thrilled about the fact that it’s Monday.
But it’s not just any Monday.
For most of us, school has started.
Therefore, this is the worst day ever.
Goodbye, days of sleeping in until 2pm.
Goodbye, days of going to the beach and passing out drunk in the sand.
Goodbye, days where the biggest source of frustration is that moment when your remote control runs out of battery and you have to get up, out of bed, to change the channel.
It’s all over.
All the good stuff‘s over.
Now I honestly haven’t had a real summer in quite some time since I’ve been doing this thing called working and going to school and having no life. But I can still remember feeling anxious about the school year beginning, trying to cram as much awesomeness into those last days of freedom.
You see, with the end of summer, there always came this inexplicable sense of dread.
But you know what? I don’t feel that way anymore. I actually seem to think that the end of summer is quite wonderful.
There’s a sense of promise that the school year brings.
So much yet to be accomplished.
So rather than crying about the fact that summer’s over, how about you embrace the sense of hope that comes from the beginning of fall?
I mean, what do you hope to accomplish this year?
Think about it.
Buy yourself a planner. Set your goals.
Now’s the time to do so.
The great thing about the end of summer is that you get a new start.
Maybe you royally screwed up last year.
Maybe you ended up with a 1.75 GPA last semester.
Maybe you graduated high school ranked 300/301.
Maybe you’ve just been a jerk to people lately.
Because now you get a chance to make things better.
This semester, actually study.
This semester, really go to the gym.
This year, work on not being an a-hole to people.
Spend this season working non-stop to reach your goals.
And your life will be better.
Yes, the summer was awesome.
But the fall will be too.
Make sure of it.
