The Days Of Back To August Drama
Many of the young ones awoke today with their personal back to school drama. Who said that education is something to celebrate while it actually is an every day burden depriving of long morning sleep, cheery afternoon coffee sit-ups with your besties and free as a wind evenings. Don't dramatize, we're all been through this and, look, now we feel wiser and happier, you may retort. True, but it doesn't make any of students happier this very second. Unless there' a bigger drama somewhere, which, preferably, doesn't hurt anyone real. So let's forget about boring schooldays and get back to August drama you haven't seen yet.
