Good morning goodbye August

By Maddie 

Today is the last day of August, which means summer is reaching its end. No more backyard barbecues or rooftop parties or sunburns or Senate recesses (until October). It's time to start school and buckle down at work. It's not all so bad, though. Just because we can't eat ice pops and wake up soaked in sweat doesn't mean we can't have any fun. September brings us plenty of things to look forward to.

Labor Day
Don't pack away your swim suit and booty shorts just yet! We have one more excuse to let loose and lose our dignity, summer style. I'll be spending the three-day weekend in my three-piece white suit, which for some reason only Mark Twain, Tom Wolfe, and Morgan-Freeman-as-God are allowed to wear year-round

Dancing to "September" on September 21st

Who doesn't absolutely love this song? If I had one wish right now, it'd be to have a happy, meaningful life, but to be at a wedding dancing to this would be a very close second.

Not being drenched in sweat
We no longer have to look like Marlon Brando in Apocalypse Now or feel like every cast member on "Lost." You no longer have to bring an extra shirt to work. I no longer have to write my posts in the nude, which gets kind of uncomfortable (erotic) considering I have no curtains and three windows facing neighbors.

All of the shows we love coming back on air
Having one of those Thursdays when even the most outlandish animal-doing--human-thing video can't cheer you up? Don't fret! "30 Rock" and "Community" are here to cure our blues. It's Tuesday and you realize you're probably gonna die alone? Turn on "Parenthood" and live vicariously. Wanna be a lawyer but def don't wanna study for that pesky bar exam? "The Good Wife" gives us the opportunity to see how a fancy firm works in made-up TV land. The only thing keeping me going is knowing "Law and Order: Los Angeles" is just over the horizon.

Beyonce's birthday
Ladies, am I right?


  1. I love anything that ends with Beyonce.

  2. These were good videos. So much better than the videos I just had to watch on student privacy laws and sexual harassment which are required for me to become a substitute teacher.

  3. I can't wait until the Simpsons come back!
