This coming Tuesday, I head over to Flushing, Queens
, to partake in my traditional, First Tuesday of the Open
attendance. I'll have my trusty friend Janice along (as I always do) and we'll be running from court to court watching some fun tennis. Truthfully, I think I only ever want to do this with Janice since she is the only one that loves it as much as I do. Sometimes, I think that we do this because it bring us back to being giddy "kids" who always watched tennis on TV. All of a sudden, here we are watching it live. Partay!!!
But along with the start of the US Open comes the start of the end of summer. Labor day lurks around the corner. Already, businesses are talking about Back To School Specials. It's slightly disheartening. The weather seems to have even turned slightly. For some reason, I feel like I am turning a corner. I think I know why but I am hesitant to discuss it on here. Maybe, one day I will. It doesn't help that I feel that the summer is ending too soon.
It's been an interesting summer though. I gained a new BFF
. I had two quite long vacations. I even got a raise at work. More importantly, I am learning how to refocus my energy so that it does not get eaten up by what I do for a living. I have decided to take up some fun "courses". I plan on making them fun and not a reason to pursue another career. I want to spend more time with my friends whether it be drinks, walks in the park, going to exhibits, whatever. I want to be less about work and more about after-work. I need to spend time more often with a few of the people
that I met via this blog. I hope they want to.
More importantly, I want the feeling of summer to last until the next. Wish me luck. Later.
