10 Reasons I Can't Stand Spring

Pollen is ruining my life -- a novel

10 Reasons I Can't Stand Spring

Springtime. Flowers, longer days, baby animals- what's not to love? If you ask me, a lot. I never really caught onto the whole "spring fever" thing. As someone with mild to severe allergies and a love for hot beach days I'm sure you'll agree. Here's some things that make me not like spring.

1. I can't breathe -- ever.

As much as I'd like to enjoy the beautiful weather, It's difficult to do when there's yellow clouds stuffing up the air. Shout out to the people without allergies that can go outside and read a book- I envy you, lend me your nostrils.

2. People get out of control when it gets to 60 degrees.

Now, I love my shorts and crop-tops as much as the next person, but I also love being warm when there's still frost on the grass in the morning. The first warm day everyone loses their minds. I promise you, summer is coming up next.

3. Everything is suddenly yellow.

Black car? Nope, not anymore. Prepare for the yellow-green film to stick on to your car any day now. But don't bother washing your car, because it'll be back tomorrow.

4. The birds are back.

You know those few deep hours of sleep you get right before you wake up in the morning? Well prepare for every bird alive to start singing right then and there.

5. So are the inch worms.

I've been absolutely terrified of those little green inch worms ever since I was little. Silly to think about I know but as a girl with thick hair that it's an actual nightmare to walk under some trees with these little guys hanging around.

6. Hanging baskets are suddenly made out of gold.

Maybe it's because I don't have a green thumb, but I never understood why everyone goes insane over hanging baskets. Have you bought yours, yet? Where are you putting them? I plan on hanging them from my side view mirrors this year, thank you.

7. I never know how to dress.

I'll admit, it's hard to remember what 65 degrees feels like. Do I fold up my jeans? Can I get away with this dress without a cardigan? Who knows, it might be 70 degrees at noon and then 50 by 5 p.m.

8. Allergy medication.

Nothing says spring like slipping into a nice coma because you just took your allergy medication. Listen, if any season requires me to take drugs to survive, it's automatically not my favorite.

9. People sneeze everywhere.

Few things are worse than hearing someone blow their nose right next to you. Don't fight me on this.

10. People forget how to drive.

Spring time is a great time to travel, but it doesn't mean drive like you just got your license an hour ago. Blinkers still exist, I promise.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
