We’re heading into Labor Day and the official end of summer. Most schools have already started, and the long endless summer days are over. To me, this has always been a new beginning time of year. It must be because I’ve never gotten over the “back to school” routine. I probably never should have stopped going to school, and in a lot of ways wish I hadn’t. I graduated high school with someone who is working on his fifth or sixth doctorate. If I had the money, that’s where I’d be right now.
Yes, I was the penultimate college nerd…taking notes in class, then after class going to the library to re-write the notes I took. I was happy being a nerd; and I still love learning. School was always one of the most important things in my life; just like reading is now. I’ve learned so much from reading, that in a way; I’m still educating myself. Because this time of year is so much like new beginnings, I’m going to spend some time over this long weekend writing down a list of goals to have accomplished by the end of the year.
So, enjoy your weekend, but don’t forget about your goals.
