Well, today is the last day of Summer Break 2010 for me. It has been absolutely amazing, possibly the best summer ever. I say that every summer, but still, its been fucking awesome.
This last week I've spent here in my hometown reminds me a lot of a game for the Nintendo DS called, "The World Ends with You". I no longer have it but was playing it last summer after someone recommended it to me as a good buy. To make a long story short, the game is about a spiteful boy who dies, is sent to an alternate plane of existence called the underground, and is given seven days to complete tasks given to him by the creators of the underground, The Reapers. His prize for completing the tasks before other 'players' without fail is to be brought back to life.
It's kind of similar because when one goes to college, especially an out of state college, its like living two different lives (as opposed to being dead). So the last seven days are like the countdown until the switch, and the tasks are packing all your shit and preparing and stuff. heh. Possibly my favorite scene in the game is the title screen of the last day, which simply said "THE LAST DAY" in big text. On my last day of summer last year, it just popped into my head, as it did when I woke up this morning.
