Back to school means back to papers, tests and reading quizzes for those readings you never actually do. Back-to-school blues and rain might have you down, but coming back to school also means coming back to school events and Portland fun-tivies. Don’t sit around and cry about break being over — head out this weekend to the activities fair or a cool concert.
