Summertime Sadness

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Can you believe that the summer is almost over?  I can’t.  Summer has gone by so fast and I hate to see it go but not for the reasons you might think, at first.

Before we get to that, check out this awesome new song; I heard it on the radio the other day and thought it was lovely.  SUMMERTIME SADNESS by Lena Del Ray

Every summer, the goal is always the same.  We start the summer off with BEA and then go into with new books and more posts than ever before.  Of course, every summer my post-more goal is always an epic fail.  I may even post more during the school year than I do during the summer and this is why.  I live in New York, in the middle of nowhere (About Me page).  I’m a college student, a junior now, and so I do have summers off.  However, I work on my family farm.

Farming is really a dead career, if you ask me.  Maybe in the southern states and other places, it has a better reputation but, in New York, it’s fast becoming out-of-style.  My family, we hold onto something that we all know will be over soon—just like the captain goes down with the ship.

Anyway, farming takes up a lot of my time, time that I try to reserve for writing more posts and continuing the blog.  During the school year, I live at school so I have all the time after homework to work on the site.  It’s really sad, when I can never get to posting.  I start the day, as soon as I get up, getting ready to go to the farm to work.  I don’t return home until the evening and, by then, it’s time to have an hour to read and go to sleep.

I wanted to write this post because I was inspired by this song to write about what made me sad in the summer.  Plus, I want you to know that I haven’t forgotten about you and my books; I’m extremely busy.  College will be starting soon so it should get a lot better.  Also, in the next few days, a new reviewer will be joining The Bucket List, which will definitely make posting seem a lot easier.  I’m not trying to put a damper on your last days of summer, but

What makes you sad, during the summer?
