I'm So Sad It's Friday....


Happy last day of July and a moment of silence for faculty whose summer vacay is over. I believe the students still have a few weeks reprieve. If you teach or are a student when is your first day back?

    1. End of October. That would be way late for us. How long does it run?

    2. till July, with a number of breaks for exam periods :) But we have exams from September and October, so it's just lecture free but not exam free

  2. I'm sure some weirdo somewhere has said it.
    Since I don't have kids, I have no idea when they go back to school here. I dread it because it's the return of the #%!# school bus.

  9. Happy August.
    On this side of the world it is still winter, and the kidlets are still in school. Which makes trips to the shops considerably quieter.

  10. I think my daughter has two more weeks before school resumes. Summer is generally an easier time in my work, but I've been making the most of it with lots of sailing and kayaking and traveling...

  12. I'm just sad (period) at the close of summer. Summer was very short this year...almost could say it was a cold summer with only the exception of a few hot days.
    I hate to see school start because I live a block down the street from a middle school. Most kids have no care for the environment because I continually pick up soda cans, candy wrappers and empty snack bags from my lawn. I wonder who's failed in their responsibility to teach kids otherwise?

  13. Sorry to hear that. It would be frustrating.
