There is some disagreement online about whether or not September is fall or summer because technically the Autumnal Equinox is two-thirds of the way through the month and not at the beginning. Here's the thing though, it's cooling down rapidly up here on the 49th parallel. We're having many days of fall-like weather with the odd summer-like day in between.
Really, September is the transition between summer and fall, so if people want to get into their pumpkin spice and spooky decor early, I don't see the fuss. How about we let people love the things they love?
I've always enjoyed this time of the year. I find summer is often too warm to focus on goals. As such, I spend it enjoying patio weather and drinks with friends because anything else has me constantly searching for a place to keep cool.
But September? This is the time of year for cuddles, scary movies*, harvests, and renewal. Also, the bugs and pollen are largely going away, so for people like me who suffer all summer because of trees and grass, well, we can finally enjoy the outside again. Yes, some things are ending, but it is so new things can begin.
This week I have my first meet scheduled with The Rainbow Rockers curling league. Though it's predominantly male-presenting people in the league, I'm looking forward to making some more LGBTQ+ friends while doing something active. I'm slightly worried about keeping my feet and ankles warm while playing, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. The first match isn't until October.
