This again! Yup, it’s August 31, so that means…
It’s this thing I started doing in 2001 counting down the days I’d return to college, and for some reason am still doing 15 years after I graduated.
Anyway, let’s get to it…

Day 100, a Friday, before the three day Labor Day weekend, and I’ve got some poke. Mmmm.
As these 100 Days of Summer draw to a close, completing my annual countdown to nothing, our political climate continues to be batshit and leading to… something or other. What can you do? Well, there’s voting in the midterm election in November, of course. What else? The usual. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, of course. And whatever else is ahead. Got to look ahead. It’s the direction we’re going, even if it’s always so hard to see.
*rereads last paragraph* Ugh. Who writes this stuff?
Anyway, back to this for some reason next year for Round 19, on May 24, 2019, whatever the world will look like then.
This has been Day 100 of the 100 Days of Summer, Round 18.
