15 Signs You Are Doing Too Much

Summer ended and school is picking back up, and honestly, something about that thought was calming. Sitting tranquilly in the library was sounding almost like a vacation.

But, wait. No, dead wrong.

The end of summer does not mean the shenanigans end when school comes to town. Let's take those summer shenanigans (aka part-time job(s), going out, and hobbies) and put 12 to 19 hours of class, clubs, and sorority obligations on top of it. Suddenly you find yourself overwhelmed realizing you've spread yourself too thin. Regardless of feeling this way, you want to do all of the things. And all the things need to get done.

Here are some signs that you may need to slow your roll:

1. FOMO is a real life difficulty. You know you have to babysit at 7:20am, but you also know all of your friends are going out and so are you.

2. You've forgotten to eat.

3. You work to afford nice things like Cookout and the occasional half priced sushi. But you splurge too often, which leads to picking up more hours. And now you're living on peanut butter.

4. You realize all of your friends are feeling the same way.

5. You make the effort to go out for all the Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. This is you on Wednesday:

6. By Saturday this is what you have become:

7. The lack of sleep has caused your brain to drift, and you lose control over all communication skills.

8. Class starts at 8:10 a.m. and lasts until 3:25 p.m. And you have work at 4 p.m.

9. You're mom calls you mid-walk to class, and you answer. She just wants a simple chat, but this simple conversation turns into you complaining as you walk up the Hill to your next class.

10. Realizing you have a free day to do whatever your heart desires:

11. And then you get a text asking you to babysit, or cover a shift:

12. At the end of the day, your roommate tries to have a conversation with you, and you're tempted to just fall on the ground and close your eyes.

13. You understand the obligations make your days long, but it will be worth it in the long run.14. Two weeks after you spent hours studying for your finals, you get your scores back; it's all A's with a dash of B+'s. Oh, and it's pay day.15. It's hard and annoying at times, but it's a part of life. Just keep on going.

Although all the things need getting done, don't spread yourself too thin. Take care of yourself. Leave time to watch 'The Office.' Pay attention to the activities you enjoy, and drop the ones you don't. After all, "life is short," but if you do it right it may come with some perks...

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
