The Quarter System, and My Return

So, part of the reason why I’ve ceased posting updates is college. Anyone who’s been in college will understand that it can be tough at times, especially with my case. I stopped posting updates around the same time finals were (the university I attend is on a quarter system so fall quarter was ending), and because I was consistently either missing or skipping posts that should have been up. Anyway, in my current situation, I have to take 19 credits next quarter, spring quarter, to get on track with my desired major.

Anyone who is watching will find a new post or two over spring break, which for me is in a couple of weeks and lasts a week, and I will be posting bi-weekly (Sundays and Wednesdays?) over my summer break.

Again, stay warm, stay safe, and stay awesome.

Labor Day

Today, September 3rd, is Labor Day in the United States. Labor Day is dedicated to the contributions of workers and and labor unions, and was proposed when labor unions began gaining power. The first Monday in September is set aside as a federal and state holiday during which non-essential government employees are given paid leave from their work duties and federal and state offices are closed. Oregon was, in 1887, the first state of the United States to adopt Labor day as a state holiday, seven years before it became a national holiday. In many American school districts, classes start a day or so after Labor Day, making Labor Day the unofficial last day of summer. Finally, many countries celebrate Labour Day on the First of May, coinciding with International Worker’s Day, but Australia holds Labour Day on the first Monday of October, the second Monday of March, the first Monday in March or the first Monday of May, depending on where in Australia you are.
