I understandably will get no sympathy from this of you with conventional jobs, but summer is over tomorrow. Two days of mind numbing meetings will lead into a year where they’ve decided to stuff 25-35% more kids into my broom closet of a CAD lab. I also get to spend a bunch of extra time this year planning to blow the entire program up next year and replace it with a bunch of precanned bullshit because a certain organization is good at promoting themselves. I am ... less than thrilled.

Oh well, I’ve got my wife next to a bonfire with me, and a quality beverage. Gotta enjoy the little things.
