August is here, along with the last summer trips, BBQs, and beach bonfires. Then, at least for me, it’s back to school to start my graduate-level economics classes at SF State. Already bought 3 classes of books, which set me back over 4 c-bills…but that’s a small price to pay for knowledge, and the knowledge of commanding a higher salary. I hope.
Just took a trip to the Southland last week; a 1700-mile romp through the LA Basin with a side excursion to Sin City. I even got to enjoy clam chowder at Pismo and a short campus visit of UC Santa Cruz (my alma mater)
Now I’m in Japan trip prep mode; got travel books, history books, literature, gear, moisture-wicking clothes and so on. One more week and I’ll be off!
