16 Things You Forgot You Hated About Summer

Trying on swimsuits. Need I say more?

16 Things You Forgot You Hated About Summer
Frank McKenna

Don't get me wrong, summer is great. No school, no homework, just relaxing. No having to put on a big winter coat when you go outside. Nothing is easier than throwing on shorts and t-shirt and being able to walk out the door. The days are longer, which is so nice, and you can finally workout outside. But there are some down sides to the warmer weather that comes with summer time. Like what is with all the bugs? Everywhere. All the time. And ladies, swimsuit shopping? Ugh. I feel like I just bought one last year and it's already time to hunt for a new one. And I mean hunt.

1. Burning your hand on the metal part of your seatbelt. I always forget how much that hurts.

2. Actually having to shave your legs more than once a week. Ugh.

3. Your hair having a mind of its own.

4. You realize how pale you are when you put shorts on.

5. That gross feeling of your legs sticking to the leather seats in your car.

6. Your feet being SO dirty after wearing flip flops all day.

7. Bugs. Bugs everywhere.

8. Sweating as soon as you get out of the shower.

9. Wanting to cut all your hair off because it's constantly suffocating your face and neck.

10. Your iced coffee dripping all over your desk.

11. Sitting outside for the first time and turning tomato red.

12. Having to wear a strapless bra with any cute top you find.

13. Trying on swimsuits. Need I say more?

14. Always having to bring your sunglasses or else you spend the rest of the day squinting.

15. Having to bring layers to the office because the AC is so cold (but wonderful).

16. Always being covered in mosquito bites and being SO itchy.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
