Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for September 05, 2004
"Hi Nate!" "Hm." "Enjoying your last day of vacation before school starts, eh?" "Right." "You know what's a good thing to do? Make a list of your GOALS for the upcoming school year!" "It'll help you focus on feeling positive about back-to-school time!" "I'll get you a paper and pencil!" "You might resolve to make the honor roll, for instance! Or to participate in the school spelling bee! Setting goals for yourself is a good thing!" "Here you go! Pencil and paper! Put it to good use!" "Do not disturb."
