I can't believe summer is coming to an end already. I mean it was just yesterday when June started. Time has flown by to fast and I am really scared at how much time flies. So school for me starts on September 2nd and I am excited yet nervous. This year I have two classes on Tuesdays, and three online. And then I am going to do a non-paid internship for eight hours a week. So I am really scared about all of this. All though the summer I kept saying that I wanted school to start already because I missed it. And now that it's going to start I'm not that excited to go back again. My two younger siblings are both starting school that same day and everyone is excited here. My mother because she will finally have her morning noise free and so will I, when I am here in the house. So how do you guys feel about school starting? Are you guys happy to go back? Or if you have kids how do you feel seeing them go back to school?

Sounds like you are going to be pretty busy. Don't be nervous about going back to school. After you go back for a few days, you'll be back in the swing of things again. I've just started school again myself. I have a full time load of classes...four of them. Plus I work full time. I really hope that I did not bite off more than I can chew. I have 7 to 8 hours of work 5 days a week. Then I have 2 classes 3 days a week on the campus. I also have 2 online classes. Nearly all my time I'm awake I will be working, going to school, and doing my homework. So I'll be here for less time during the next 9 months.

Yeah I just have to get used to it again. Wow. You have even more stuff than me. I hope that you are able to cope with all of that. I know that you'll be able to handle it just remember to take it slow and not to overstress the smallest things. Good luck to you. ^_^

My girl's second year of college started yesterday. She's complaining about the cost of books. My son started 11th grade last Monday. As a mom it feels great to get my house back to myself. The peace and quiet takes a little getting use to. I finally don't have to keep them occupied. We did do a last day of summer at Disneyland. That was fun. Good luck with your own schooling, my friend. These are your wonder years. Have fun.

Actually I'm really looking forward to going back to school as the summer holidays have gone by really fast but school is more intresting than staying at home. I'm lucky though because I get an extra week on top of what I should get because I'm going to Japan with my Dad. :)

I graduated highschool 8 years ago, and I am glad. By then I was extremely sick and tired of being stuck in a classroom all day long, with a bunch of other people who felt the same way as I did. I do not have kids, and my husband and I don't have plans to have any. The one really great thing about this time of year is that with the kids in school all day, the two of us (we're both almost blind!) won't have to worry about tripping over them on the sidewalk.

When I was in high school I wasn't really tired. I had something to look forward to every day that kept me going. So whenever I did get tired I would think about that thing. Whether it was my dancing class, singing class, or talking to the other kids around in the hallway. But hopefully I get to rest some when my siblings aren't here. I'll probably get more sleep during the day too. Hopefully.^_^ Happy mylotting
