11 Thoughts We Have The Last Week Of Summer

Why does summer have to end? Will summer ever end? Will I overpack again?

11 Thoughts We Have The Last Week Of Summer
Garett Mizunaka

The dog days of summer can be the most fun, and the most stressful. With move in day and the start of classes rapidly approaching, even the most composed people are freaking out. There's so much to worry about and such little time.

1. I'm not ready

Plain and simple, I am not ready to leave for school. I may have everything I need to go, but I'm not mentally ready.

2. Summer wasn't long enough

Yes, eventually the days drag on and you don't know when it's Monday or Friday. Everything to be done has been done and you're exhausted from the beach. It's possible, believe me. For me, this moment hit right after July 4th weekend.

4. Everyone leaves on different days

The best part of summer is home friends. The worst part of summer is when all your home friends leave. They leave on different days too, just rip the band-aid off and abandon me all in one go. Thanks.

5. School friends are that much closer.

It sucks when you home girls and boys leave, but that means you're that much closer to all the people who make living on campus and showing up to class bearable. Plus, you get to make new friends!

6. There's just so much stress

So much to do so little time. Between seeing friends, packing, finishing work and trying to enjoy the last week of summer, you end up spreading yourself thin. The itchy bug bites may actually be a stress rash. At this point would you be surprised?

7. Packing sucks

You're supposed to pack up enough clothes to live on campus for a few months at a time, but you still need clothes to wear for the last few days of summer. If you need makeup or hair products, forget it. The night before move-in day is just one giant meltdown that none of us are truly ready for.

8. So many to-do lists

My to-do lists have to-do lists at this point. You bet I'm going to forget at least a quarter of the things that need to be done.

9. Saying goodbye never gets easier.

Whether it be to your family, friends, or coworkers, saying goodbye sucks and is never a fun task. Saying goodbye is the one daunting task that haunts the end of the summer. It's the one thing we wish we could prolong.

10. I'm not ready to surrender my privacy.

Sure, having a roommate is fun and all, but getting used to living with someone is a hard adjustment. Communal bathrooms also suck.

11. Sweet freedom

Even though being home can be fun, parents tend to have these things called rules. In college, however, they aren't there to enforce those rules.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
