The "back to school" feeling in one image

I found this image in one of the many Facebook fan pages of the Peanuts comics, with Marcie shopping for school. I do not know the rest of the strip where it is from, all the same it fascinates me, because it illustrates this time of year perfectly. August is the month of blues, when the school holidays are ending and we have already to prepare for the return to classes. So that means go and shop for stationary. It means putting your mind on school things while you are still on holidays. In a word, it gives you the "back to school" feeling, aka the blues of August. I hated it then and even as a grownup who does not go to school, I hate it now. Because it is still stuck in my psyche.
