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.  

Acorn Necklace, Bullseye Beads
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~*

  1. I love autumn, but not yet! I want another month of summer first! Because autumn leads to...not even sayin' it.

    And I looove Breaking Bad. But I'm willing to share it. ;)

    I don't think I really liked school until my fourth year of university. I so enjoyed the seminar classes with just 10 kids and a great professor.

    1. Totally agree about seminar classes-- so much better than auditoriums-- though the showman in me likes teaching a good auditorium class I must admit.

  2. Yes! I'm totally ready for Autumn. I love Breaking Bad, and I think everyone else should too, so good that it's popular!! Also loving Orange is the New Black... the show is even better than the book.

    1. See now that is a true fan!! Wanting the show you like to be popular is the whole point, isn't it lol? We love it too-- so funny & so thoughtful!!

  3. I love that necklace nearly as much as I love Autumn, and indeed Zoolander!!

    Just Pirouette and Carry On...

    1. I've got that necklace on my wishlist! I already own Zoolander lol

  4. I don't love the first day of school, but I get why lots of other people do. I do love the smell of books and the promise of autumn (and I don't think it's weird to love autumn either). Delightful to think of someone so enchanted by learning as you are teaching. The acorn necklace is perfectly beautiful for sure, and so autumnal. And...confession. I've never seen "Breaking Bad", "Zoolander", or "Orange is the New Black". And I object. Orange could never be the new black for me. Maybe the new fuschia? (= (= Obviously I'm missing out. (= (=
