Word on the street: September feels
Posted on: September 11, 2017
Comfy knit sweaters. Fresh dewy mornings. The crunch of colourful leaves under booted feet. September is here again.
As the days get shorter and the nights get cooler, the turn of the season represents renewal for many people. Whether it’s back to grade school, leaving home for college or the start of hockey season, September seems to mean something to everyone. Reporter Jane Hobson hit the streets to hear what September means to a few of our readers.
Dora Tamas – “September always feels like something new is starting because it’s always time for back to school. It’s time for football games and cozy sweaters — and pumpkin spice at work! It’s also a little sad because it’s the end of something; the end of summer. I’m a little nostalgic. I’m going back into grade 12.” Photo by Jane Hobson.
Matt Anderson – “When September starts I think of fall. I find September an exciting time of year. I think of going for drives through the mountains, drinking tea and checking out the beautiful fall colours. I love the cooler air; the warm sun. I think of grabbing a coffee and going for a walk; scouting new hunting spots. I think of the time I get to spend at the rink watching my kids play hockey. I feel like it’s getting close to winter and getting things ready for Christmas time. It was always an exciting time for mom. With her passing away, I like to try and make September an exciting time for my kids.” Photo: submitted.
Greta Hanneman – “I think of going back to school, and change in general. There is a total shift in mood when September comes around. I would say that the month of September usually brings me a sense of excitement and eagerness for the new opportunities that come with the end of summer…but right now the idea of September approaching makes me very scared with university applications this year and everything.” Photo: submitted.
