Hello fellow Straddlers, and how has your week been? I’ve just finished a 20,000-word thesis and will be getting my final feedback later today. I’ve also just helped my best friends of ten years pack up their stuff to move to America, and do you know how much of your crap migrates to other people’s houses over the course of ten years? I have no idea where these bags of books are going to live. My bookshelves were already a carefully negotiated balancing act, you guys; there’s no space for anything more.
It’s also the start of the school year, which in my head means it’s more like new year than New Years actually is and I suspect I’m not ever going to shake that. September always feels hopeful, like I’ll have the chance to do everything right this year even though I probably won’t. Plus I really do like pumpkin spice lattes. Are you in school? If so, how has your first week(s) back been? Are you just starting or are you old and jaded in your school career? And what about everybody else — how are you finding September and does it feel like just any other month? Also, show me your pets because everybody likes pets!
