Those carefree summer days full of sunshine and splashing in the pool felt like they could never end. Then, like a malfunctioning alarm clock in the middle of the night, reality startles you with the sudden influx of back-to-school sales and your parents insisting that you start to get mentally prepared for the early September mornings walking to the bus stop.
