Believe it or not, we’re in August already. I don’t know about the rest of you out there, but I think summer is flying by pretty fast this year. It seems like only yesterday that it was the beginning of June and everyone was wondering when it was going to get hot outside.
I think that’s part of it, though. Since the weather has been a little bit wacky and there really haven’t been that many prolonged stretches of “summer weather” in New Jersey, it does make the time fly by a little bit faster. Of course that’s just my reaction to the weather – some people may have viewed the cool temperatures as making it feel like summer was slowly rolling past.
Personally, I’m glad that summer is flying by this year. The two big events I had to look forward to this summer are both over (my buddy’s wedding and my trip to Nashville). Plus, the closer we get to September, the closer I get to teaching over at the local college again! Being the huge nerd that I am, I also view August as preparation month for my course. In the next few days and weeks I’ll start reviewing all of the materials that I use for my class and bring them up to date for the coming semester.
Also, I’m planning on going back to school for a class this semester, but more on that in tomorrow’s entry!
