Summer's coming to a close and kids are back at school. When I was in school this used to be a melancholy time for me and probably everyone else who had just finished their 2.5 month summer vacation. 10 more months of school.

Now it's just another work-week for me, but somehow the Labour-day weekend still marks the end of summer for me. Time to get back to the normal routines, no more barbecues by the lake, fishing, etc. We Canadians tend to pack a year's worth of relaxation and happiness into two months each year.

I just can't believe I just used the word "melancholy" in a post. What am I turning retarded or something?
