Do You Get the End-of-Summer Blues?

Sniff, sniff ... Labor Day is the "unofficial" last day of summer, which means for many of us, it will be our last day off until Thanksgiving. It also means the end of summer barbecues, beach parties, pool parties, vacations ... the list goes on. So do you get a little depressed when the days turn shorter and cooler?

It's normal to wish you packed a little more fun into your summer while you had the chance. But there's something about fall that brings back that exciting "back to school" feeling, even if you've already graduated! There's a new wardrobe to plan, the return of your favorite TV shows, the holiday season, comfort food ... all that good stuff. And by now, you're probably just a little sick of applying sunscreen and staring at the sea. Nevertheless, do you find yourself getting the end-of-summer blues around this time of year? Or are you excited for a fresh start this fall?

    I love fall... But I always get down between Oct and Jan.... I think it has to do with the time change and the evening becoming so dark so early... I believe I have SAD

    and the change of the seasons or I would move. some people do suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and less light could trigger it. in the antediluvian age when I was young I preferred extremes and so winter and summer were my favorites now in my dotage I prefer spring and fall yet I really like them all.

    My daughter's birthday is October 5. She was killed 29 years ago on December 17. I take a sharp spiral down from October 1 thru the new year. But even before that I didn't like fall and winter, so this has made it just that much worse. This time of year includes her birthday and the 3 major holidays, so I'd like to just sleep thru the whole 3+ months.

    The end of summer means my sailboat has to come out of the water, since I cannot sail in winter. I get slightly depressed about that until I get into deer hunting mode.

    The only thing I'm affected by is there's nothing to do until Halloween. This year is the first time I'm getting a dose of the film festival in Sept.

  • Lizzy 2012/09/05 07:19:48
    I`m still waiting for Summer to Arrive !!, we`ve had so much rain here in the UK, not many sunny days at all. I do like Autumn, all the colours + smells but the winter is so long + cold.

    I get a "night before school starts meltdown" where I cry uncontrollably because the new schedule is too confusing. In this case it was yesterday (sept. 3rd) lol

    Not one bit! I live on the east coast and our summers are notoriously miserable all the way up the seaboard. But our falls and winters are to die for, they're perfect! Bring on the holiday weather so I can wear most of the cool stuff in my closet. The holidays are the time for romance--the sights and scents always have intrigued me, even as a guy!
  • Sybil 2012/09/04 23:18:27
    Yes! I hate the snow, the cold, shiverinnnnnng!
