When I was a Resident Assistant at C.W. Post Long Island University I remember Green Day's critical and commercial success with the album American Idiot, this critique on society, forged with some great song brought back their career with force. I also remember my boss Jen being obsessed with the song "Wake me up When September Ends"
At the time I did not know where the obsession came from, but now that I am in her shoes I know exactly what she was going through. Not only does move in happen during September, but there are numerous commitments, lots of other potential issues, and after working non stop for more than a month you want a week, no not even a week, but day where you can sit back relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. Most of the stress of my job lasts from the middle of August lasts until the end of September, so Green Day said it best, "wake me up when September ends!"
