Summertime Blues

According to the Urban Dictionary, the “summertime blues” is defined as:

The realization that summer is coming closer to an end. During the last week of Summer you try and cram everything from the list in, but most likely miss. Often Summertime Blues occur during the days preceding labor day, and as such mark a saddening time on a persons’ life – this is because after labor day basically summer is over. Everyone after labor day returns to their prior engagements such as work or school. As we know, summer is the best season because you can do nearly everything and nothing. There is no official cure for the summer time blues, as it’s inevitable.
