There's slightly more than one month left before I get to go back to school, and I feel like it's starting to be emotionally safe to switch into countdown mode. I've definitely got a month's free time's worth of preparing to do in order to be ready for the return: most of my stuff never fully migrated from my car to my bedroom, and the stuff that's in here takes up too much space to organize: I can barely keep a surface clear long enough to use it as an interstitial space while looking for (nonexistant) additional shelves to put things on.
I go back September 5. 31 days plus 5 days plus 6 days is 42. I didn't intend that but now I'm pretty glad that today's the day I decided to write this post.
