I'm not gonna sugar coat this, guys.  It's hot.  Like, v. hot.  It's ok, though!  KU will be celebrating some seriously cool days during August! (See what I did there?) Click READ MORE to find out what that haps are around here, and come see us to join in our summer fun!

This is what I want August to look like always.

First up, August is Admit You're Happy Month! I know it's not always easy, especially since the world is soooo crazy lately, but that makes it all the more important to acknowledge and admit it when you're happy!  It's not a crime!  August is also National Eye Exam Month!  I literally JUST got an eye exam, but if I had known, I definitely would have waited for the month.  That just makes sense.

Mmmmmmm, champagne

The first week of August is chock full of awesome things, starting with National Clown Week (8/1-8/7)!  Then there's International Childfree Day, National Mountain Climbing Day, and Spider-Man Day (8/1); IPA Day and National Ice Cream Sandwich Day (8/2); International Beer Day (8/3); Mustard Day, Backgammon Day, National Disc Golf Day, International Hangover Day, and Champagne Invention Day (8/4); National Farmer's Market Week (8/5-8/11); and Root Beer Float Day (8/6)!

August's birthdays will kick off with The Joker and Herman Melville (8/1); then Kevin Smith (8/2); Neil Armstrong (8/5); Andy Warhol and Piers Anthony (8/6); and Sidney Crosby (8/7)!
