Getting Ready for the First Day of School~*

Its that time of year, when the blogosphere will be overflowing with desire for, then adoration of, autumn.  Which is funny,  because a healthy percentage of said blogosphere residents will begin their autumn love-fest by announcing that they know its weird to love autumn.  Which it isn't.

As an aside, what is it that makes so many people territorial of popular things?  Like Breaking Bad.  People talk about Breaking Bad like its some sort of in-cult thing.  Everyone realizes that it is one of the most popular shows out right now, right?  Its broken all sorts of records for viewership.  Its not an exclusive thing that only a few people "get."  It doesn't make a person special because they watch it, and it doesn't make the show worse because everyone watches it.  It is an immensely popular show, which 5.9 million people tuned in to watch.  Same with Orange is the New Black-- 3 million viewers and climbing.  That isn't unique or quirky, its mainstream!

As is love for autumn.  And why not?  Everyone loves autumn because its an awesome time of year-- not too cold, not too hot and lots of pretty colors & fun holidays to break up the time.

And school.  I love school. 

I would have stayed in school forever if I could have.  I love learning.  I have an inquisitive mind.  Which totally reminds me of Zoolander.

For the record, I don't care what bark is made of & I know what I'm doing.  Mostly.

One of the plethora of neat things about my job is that I get to relive that exciting first day feeling every semester.  Ooooh and the goodies.  The pens and fresh pads of paper & the wonderful smell of books.  Sigh.  Just the thought gives me warm fuzzies~*
