While some people may say that painting a pumpkin is "taking the easy way out" or "cheating," I say that if you can paint all that on a pumpkin, go right ahead! However, be sure not to use washable paint if you're putting it outside!

Why I'm So Excited For Summer Break

It's a new season for personal growth.

After all the hard work we have all put in this year, we all deserve some beautiful weather with a hint of relaxation. Although I will be taking summer classes, I'm excited to have another season of self-love.

I have always loved summer. I used to be on my neighborhood's swim team, which not only kept me in shape but gave me some of my best friends. As my siblings have grown up, I have realized the importance of having a little fun on our breaks. Adulthood is actually kind of terrifying, but we still deserve a few days of "me" time.

I'm excited because I can go outside after a long day and read a nice book. I can go outside and watch my siblings run around the house because of how happy they are. I'm excited because I can finally start to appreciate the little things in life. It's honestly sometimes hard to do that when you are in a bubble in college.

I know I will be just as busy as I am now, but I also will be in a more relaxed mood. There are some fun holidays during the summer where families come together to celebrate. It's time to really take advantage of these holidays and spend quality time with our close relatives and friends. I know I will be spending quite a lot of time with my grandma.

One of the best things about summer is being able to stay outside a lot longer. We should all try to spend more time outside by exploring our hometowns. I plan to go on plenty of walks this summer so that I can truly embrace the beauty of our planet.

I'm excited for summer break because I will be able to grow as a person. I will keep seeing improvements in myself and grow in my relationship with God. We all deserve more seasons of summer. We all deserve seasons of growth, love, and happiness. Lets try to make this summer about relaxing and loving one another.

Could I BE any more bummed out?

Back to school after a well-needed vacation. The last thing we want to do is go back to school after a nice week off, but of course, all good things come to an end and we are bound to come back to reality eventually. As told by the wonderful show, "Friends," here are some feelings we experience as we sync back into school mode.

1. Seeing your friends for the first time since you left

Nothing beats reuniting with your BFFs. Yes, it's only been a week, but a week feels like a lifetime.

2. When the professor doesn't ease us back into learning

Our minds are still at the beach. Whatever the professor is saying is going in one ear and right out the other.

3. When you realize that you have midterms once you get back

Life is still moving faster than we can catch up to. Midterms still exist and they are even worse now that your brain refuses to function.

4. When you're friends fill you in on their spring break adventures

Don't we love sharing the unbelievable adventures of spring break?

5. When the stress of back to school gets to be too much
