Well, today's Labor Day, which marks the official end of summer (unless if you go by the sun.) How was your summer? What did you do?

Let's see...I went to Chicago in June, and I started school about three weeks ago, so my summer ended then. That was pretty much it for my summer. I didn't really do much today, either. I'm expecting an extremely busy year, however, with business, family, and school.

What did you do?

My summer was fairly good. I went to Glacier National park for a few weeks. After I got home from that I made an attempt at climbing Mt Shasta, but didn't quite make it to the summit, I still had to go up about another 100 feet or so. other than that, I just worked until school started.

Guess its my fault for living in Vancouver. :rolleyes:

That reminds me...I also went to Yellowstone for a day. It was probably my third or fourth visit. I'd really like to go to Glacier someday. I also was planning on going to Mt Shasta on Spring Break about two years ago, but I was going to Asia the next month and had to cut the trip short in Mendocino.

I'm sad to see summer go and school start. Did lots of camping and went bungee jumping (200 ft!) for the first time yesterday :D

uumm wats labour day??
Oops, it's an American holiday (one of the few). It's just a day of rest for the employed, and Memorial Day (last Monday in May) and Labor Day (first Monday in September) traditionally mark the start and end of summer for most.

Yeah, and there's also the rule that you can't wear white after Labor Day. I forgot about that.

I think I'll wear white tomorrow. I just now need to find a white shirt that also is in compliance with my school dress code.

Yeah, my summer was also pretty uneventful. The beginning of school is always bittersweet. This was also the first year of school I had to too summer reading, and I blew it off until August, so I had 100 pages per day to read. :eek:

In fact, I need to read 78 pages of Les Miserables by 8:00 AM today, and it's already 12:30. :eek:

Hmmm, at the beginning of the summer I moved half-way across the country to be closer to my girlfriend. And then a week before Labor Day she broke up with me. :(
Not the best summer I've ever had...
