First of all, I love First Day of School fashion. I wish I had my camera so I could show you how trendy everyone looks. Don’t judge!
Second of all, nothing.
What I came here to say is that I am going to miss Rhapsody. Combined with Instant Netflix and Hulu, I have discovered that integrated CD-ROM drives are obsolete (I owe you $5, Steve Jobs!). I use Rhapsody on a daily basis to listen to whatever music I’m too lazy to buy or illegally download, and there are no commercials, and there are —
So I was writing that paragraph, and in the back of my head I was thinking, “first you plug Fig Newmans, then the Kindle, then expensive personality testing, then Rhapsody? What are you all about, exactly?” And then I chuckled fondly and changed the subject.
I’m still in last-two-weeks-of-summer-camp mode, and all the flaws of everything I’ve gotten to know (like consumerist America) are no longer problems. They are unique, complex, and challenging parts of a greater whole, which is overall beautiful, amazing, and interesting. If only it was this easy for me to humanize my parents before I left for college! Right, Mom?
Anyway, instead of doing a new post every time I realize I will miss some object, here is a compiled list of miss-able things:
