but to all intents and purposes, last week of August is the last week of summer.
If the academic year hasn’t started for you already, by September 1st there will be no mistaking that summer play is over –
it’s school time. New classes. New teachers. New students. It’s just different.
If you work at a place where it’s all about the Quarters and Fiscal Years, September 1st marks another change.
If you live north of the ~45-degree latitude, the weather would typically start to change in an unmistakable way.
It might start slowly. Or not.
So here is № 1 for the last week of summer. A week of something-somethings to ease into the season change.
