An Open Letter to July

Dear July,
We need to have a talk. I feel like we've always had a good relationship, and in the past, we've gotten along just fine. I don't remember any quarrels or issues, and you have even brought me some joy. Remember all those BBQ's over the 4th? And fireworks! We had some good times. Plus, you bring with you the meat of summer, and along with that, summer vacation. One summer brought me to Ghana, and on the return trip, i spent the month of you traveling Holland and Belgium. That wasn't so bad, why can't you always be like that?

So what happened? What did i do to anger you so? This time around, July, it just seems like you aren't even trying. Worst of all, you seem to be going out of your way to make things difficult. My four largest projects at work were all scheduled to ship during you, yet you couldn't let me catch a break on any of them. Long, late hours at work every week, frustrations, set backs, multiple trips every week... seriously. What gives?

July- i'm done with you. See me next year and we'll try again, but you need to be over so i can get on with my year.

August, please be gentle.

Hi, Kevin!

This letter made me laugh. Sounds like you had a rough month! I know the feeling. And I hope August goes smoother.

I am a freelance writer based in Arizona and currently working on an article about how China handles its trash. For example, whether or not many people there recycle and if so, how it's done, and also, what the city's system for trash collection is like.

Would you be willing to answer a few questions for me with regard to what you've experienced in China? If so, please e-mail me at mclook[at]gmail[dot]com.

Thanks for you time, and I hope to hear from you!
