I love the fall.
I love Back to School time.
I love school/office supplies.
Yes, I’m a giant dork.
I can’t help it.
I love when the stores clear out the lawn chairs and garden equipment to make room for aisles and aisles of notebooks, pens and backpacks. I can browse through them for HOURS. Back to School shopping was one of my favorite rituals of childhood. I love starting the new school year with a whole new crapload of fresh supplies. You can’t go to the first day of school with used notebooks or pens. That would just be WRONG.
The girl just got a new backpack for college. I’m incredibly jealous, in spite of the fact that I still have MY very cool red plaid messenger bag for fall. Yeah, I’ve got a thing for plaid, too.
I love seeing the bright yellow school buses on the road again. But I HATE being stuck behind them on the way to work (another reason to go into work EARLY).
There’s nothing like a cup full of new, freshly sharpened old skool-style pencils. I’m also a huge Sharpie fan.
I’m not the only one. There are others obsessed with school supplies.
I know you’re out there.
Tell me I’m not alone.
