A New Year
Ah...it's almost that time of year. That magical time when everyone moves back to Athens after a long summer back home. School starts, everyone gets to see their old friends, kids have to study again, and everyone heads back downtown.
As much as I bitch about work, this is my most lucrative time of year. August-December are the money-making months. Perhaps it has to do with being back in town that makes fall semester the most busy time of the year...everyone wants to get drunk.
In addition, there's a whole new class of freshman living within walking distance of downtown, who eventually wander out this way during the hours of 9pm-2am and try to sneak into the bars with their fakes.
And the cherry on top is football season. This year we have 7 games at home. So far the first two are back to back Saturday night games. Which means it's gonna be crazy.
On top of all this, it may be my last football season myself. I'm getting too old for this shit. So expect a lot of funny stories come September 1st. Most likely before that, when the freshmen come out and make me laugh at their drunken antics.
