College Crosse's Best of September

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Sometimes you miss important things. Don't miss important things.

I was looking back at the blogging plan that I wrote for this site back in February. (Yes, I wrote an actual blogging plan. Yes, it consisted of more than, "Be terrific; also: you're adorable." No, I didn't follow it. Yes, I'm pretending that we're having a real human conversation right now. No, I don't like medication.) One of the items on the plan was doing a monthly round-up, highlighting the best stuff that was published during a particular period. It seemed like a really good idea.

How do I know this? Because I wrote the headline, college boy:

Nonsense
