Never cared for the period after the 4th of July, since that's when stores bring out all the back to school shit. When I was younger going to school it was a reminder that summer vacation was halfway over. As an adult it's not a reminder that half the year has gone by already. Time moves way too fucking fast sometimes. There's plenty of shit I wanna get done but have been super slow on, and eventually time's gonna run out and it'll never get finished. I say this, but then I'll hop onto reddit and waste hours reading askreddit and the news. Nobody but myself to blame.
The positive side is summer stuff is now on clearance. I bought a bunch of foam glow sticks for 49 cents each. I plan to dump them onto my sister who will no doubt find a fun thing to do with them.
