As the final days of schools wind down, summer vacation begins. There's many stages to this break from the worries and stresses of school. When thinking about how to describe these stages, who better to model them than Spongebob.

1. Waiting for the last day

You can barely contain your excitment for summer as the year comes to a close. The warm outside weather has you itchy for the school day to be over so you can outside and enjoy the taste of the summer to come.

2. Leaving on the last day

You turn in you final papers and projects, clear out your locker, and head out the door for the last time for the next three months. Or in college, walking out of dorm after everything has been taken down and packed and you look at bare walls of room you won't be in again.

3. Doing nothing

The glorious days of no school work when you can sit back and enjoy you time off.

4. Becoming bored doing nothing

You've grown tired of doing nothing and secretly long for something to do. Until something comes around, you just embrace an amlost vegitative state and continue your ritual of nothing.

5. Making plans with friends

Making plans has you excited since you can break you boredum and get out of the house. Not to mention, you probably missed your friends, especially if you all just return home after a year of college.

6. Hanging with friends

If you're like me, there's no one that can make you laugh more that your best friends. Getting to spend time with them probably results in many stomach aches from so much laughter.

7. Getting ready for a trip

If this a big trip, maybe to the beach or somewhere like Disney, you've been ready for months. Months of building exctiement has finally reached it's apex. You feel like you were born ready for this. You're ready to roll.

8. Starting your trip

You reach your destination and can longer help but express your excitement. You are filled with child-like glee. You can't wait to explore and have the time of your life.

9. Going home

You've enjoyed your time away from home and really don't want to leave. If only it was possible to stay there without a care in the world, you totally would.

10. Realizing Summer is almost over

Stay calm. Don't panic yet, you still have some time off. Just because the book list was put up doesn't mean you need to revert to school mood. Enjoy the last couple days off until you need to get ready to go back.

11. Leaving home to go back

Let's face it, you both dread and look forward to this moment. You don't want to leave the careless lifestyle and all your friends, but at the same time, you can't wait for the hubbub of the college lifestyle.

12. The end, the first day of classes

Ah, the first day to the new academic year, you promise yourself and your parents that you will do. Right now, glancing through the syllabus, you think it won't be an awful semester, but you know that's probably false. Well, here's to the semester, hopefully things goes well.

Well, this brings me to the end of this article. Enjoy your summer, relax lots, eat lots, and have the time of lives.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.
