September Means…

It’s September now, and it’s one of those months I have a love-hate relationship with.

When I was a kid, it meant going back to school and summer vacation ending.  Good thing is, I liked school.  But I loved summer vacation.

Now, it means a lot of different things.  On the positive side, it’s time for hockey to start.  Training camp opens this month, and it gets me excited for the new season.  Here in Japan, it means a less hot month than August.  September is still the second hottest month, though.  But it does mean it’s getting more comfortable. I’m also going to get to meet my new niece.

On the other hand, it means winter is coming.  I find the prospect of shorter days and cold weather depressing.  It’s no secret that I don’t like winter.  Not sure if I’d call this a positive or negative, but September is the busiest month for typhoons, too.  But I like typhoons. It also means I have to renew my passport.  I don’t like government procedures and forms.

There are other things that happen, such as cicadas dying, fall foods becoming available, new electronics models become available, and so on.

What does September mean to you?

  1. September, for me, also means shorter days and colder weather. Well, not yet (still in the 100s so far), but I’m told by others that it’s supposed to be some good autumn weather – longsleeves and light jackets. We’ll see.
