It’s currently 8.38am. So far today I have had two mugs of coffee, washed up and have done a load of laundry. Now I’m sitting watching Lorraine contemplating my day, and it’s not even 9am.
On Monday, I started my Masters course at University and Boyfriend started a new job. We are well and truly in the swing of September Syndrome. Granted, we’re a few weeks behind everyone else. All the children ran back to school the first few days of September, us Uni students are just catching up. But nevertheless, the stationary shops continue to plug ‘Back to College’ gear, everyone decides they need new commuting shoes and a new bag is just, well, essential. I also find September the time of year where people, young or old, assess changes in their lives. Maybe it’s the combination of coming home from a summer holiday, the evenings getting drastically shorter and the need to find your scarf but something changes and people become more ambitious, driven and contemplative about the future. I know friends who are years from education who use September as a time to address that diet, consider that savings plan or change their hair. I don’t know why it is, or what it is, but with the going back to education season, people seem to want to become brighter, want to become better. Myself included. It’s almost a mid-year revolution feeling if you like.
Are you suffering from September Syndrome? Don’t feel bad, it’s a good thing! Perhaps you’ll fall in love with life..? I dare you.
