It’s the first really cool day I’ve experienced in weeks. It’s nice enough I’ve had my windows open since last night. It’s been a good day to run some errands and watch some Olympics. Saw mostly swimming and cycling this afternoon. Did a little cleaning in my apartment as the workers may be in my apartment within the next week or two. Weather feels almost like early fall today. But I do know we have at least four to six weeks of hot weather left. School will start in a couple weeks again. So the town will really come back to life again.
I’ve always enjoyed the falls and winters in a college town than the summers. But that is what happens when a sizable portion of my town’s population is college students. Even though I haven’t been a college student for almost a dozen years I still enjoy seeing the college kids come back. I can’t imagine how much college has changed just since I left. Had some of my happiest memories in my college years. I enjoyed the all night odd conversations, the trips to the all night diner for studying and conversations, spring afternoons watching baseball, snow ball fights in the winter, playing flag football in the snow and rain on the campus green, and going to Saturday night concerts to see the campus garage bands.
I’m also watching reruns of ‘The Big Bang Theory.’ I really haven’t paid much attention to that series. But I feel a weekend of binge watching on netflix coming on. I like the fact the characters are quirky and really smart. I feel like I can relate to those characters even if I don’t read comic books or do calculus for fun. I haven’t been around quirky and smart people on a regular basis since college. I forgot how fun it could be. What can I say, I’m a quirky dork myself.
It’s been quite a long summer for me. But it’s cooler days like this that remind me that summer is almost over. Since summers are usually my hardest times I’m glad for a return of a few cooler days.
