7. The start of school. OK, so it’s more than a little cliché to write about the first days of school in September. But I won’t lie, I always get excited for the first day of school. When I was younger I used to get so excited that I wouldn’t be able to sleep the night before. I’ve gotten over that, but there’s still something about the way campus comes to life, the way everyone is a-chatter over what they’ve done over the summer and which classes they are taking, and the way the first page of a fresh notebook looks when you get ready to write the first words in it. I’ve always loved school, and I’m pretty happy to be back at it.
2. The Detroit Jazz Festival. It happens over Labor Day, and it’s all free. 3. Free. Days. Of. Jazz. Pretty sweet. Boyfriend and I kind of stumbled into watching Jason D. Williams play, and I think we both decided it’s one of the best things we’ve done in the D yet. Pure entertainment.
