It’s that time again. Two weeks (or less) until the start of fall semester and about a month until the start of fall quarter. There has been lots of talk all over social media about the fear of August, feeling overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, excited. I’m typically in the party of “it happens every year”. Still, I look at my calendar in amazement at how fast the year, and the summer, has gone by. It seems fitting to ask: Are you ready for the start of the semester?
