17 Thoughts All College Students Have In August
Cara Giannetto

At the end of every Spring semester, we all have these amazing ideas of how we are going to spend our summer. Going to the beach, going on adventures, getting tan, getting fit, and most importantly, not doing school work. However, it never turns out as we planned. We spend our days working, taking summer classes, and watching Netflix. And then all of a sudden we realize it's August and we've accomplished zero of our summer goals.

1. Seriously, how is it August already?

I swear finals week just ended...

2. This summer definitely wasn't long enough.

Three months is not enough time to make up for 16 weeks of hell.

3. I'm not mentally prepared to go back to uni.

Classes, homework, papers, OH MY.

4. I've literally done nothing but work all summer.

5. And take classes.

6. I'm not any skinnier than I was in the Spring, either.

Being skinny this summer is cancelled, try again next year.

7. Or tanner.

8. How have I worked all summer, but still have no money?

*suppresses memories of getting food and online shopping*

9. How have all my other college peers managed to go on fun summer vacations?

10. I'm telling FAFSA.

I'm sure they'll be very interested to hear about your trip to Florida.

11. Okay, enough moping. There's still a few weeks left to enjoy the summer.

12. In fact, I'm going to plan something with my friends right now.

*sends texts hoping to not get ignored in the group chat*

13. And they're all working. Never mind.

14. I hope my classes don't suck this semester.

15. Oh, who am I kidding? They're going to suck.

16. What am I going to tell everyone I did all summer?

Working, taking classes, and watching Netflix is not an exciting story.

17. I have failed this summer. Try again next year.

11 Christmas Movies You'll Remember If You Were A 2000s Kid

Because I'm still reminiscing about simpler times.


The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

9 Reasons 'The Wilds' Should Be Your Next Binge Watch

The Wilds is the Best New Show on Amazon Prime


As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
