Well, here it is: September.
I'd be a liar if I denied I wanted fall to come by fast. Now that it's here, I kind of regret even thinking about wishing for it. I love the fall: Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks, orange leaves falling to the ground, lots of cosy sweaters and legwarmers and beanies, romantic getaways in the forest while the sun sets...Yeah, autumn is full of surprises.
And while it may get extremely cold quickly up here in Canada, for the rest of the world... for our cousins to the south... Fall isn't so bad. It's still warm enough to walk out without a heavy jacket, warm enough to leave those mittens behind... it's endurable--yes. Fall is fashionable and beautiful. It's mystical and unforgettable.
The only reason why anyone should detest fall is because of, well, you guessed it...
THE RETURN TO SCHOOL.
Mind me, I love school. I love learning. I love reading my new textbooks. I enjoy having something constant to do (I don't have a job..sniff). I also love meeting new people and making friends. Isn't that what school is all about?
This fall semester in particular is very special to me.
It will be my last.
Yes, you read right. After the fall, I'll be done my university classes. No more 'back to school' for me afterwards. Nada. I'll be done, and after convocation in early or late Spring, I'll have my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts!
It's crazy, it's mind-blogging, it's nervewrecking and absolutely exciting. I can't wait.
So let's get on with this year!
Without further a due, here is the fall/back-to-school playlist you've all been waiting for.
