Like many others who have been in the school system for far too long, I have bittersweet feelings toward the month of September. On one hand, the arrival of September means that my favourite season is just around the corner. On the other, it signifies the end of camping trips, festivals and barbecues, and the beginning of early nights, homework, and annoying group projects.
While I can’t make the school year disappear (trust me, I would if I could), I can recommend some cute cat-themed back-to-school items that will temporarily distract you from your pain.
