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.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.

Hittin' the Road Playlist

With the end of August approaching more quickly than many of us would like, the preparation for school is happening in more ways than just one.


The car is all packed. The money you saved (and didn't spend online) from your summer internship is secured quietly in your bank account. The immediate reunion with your long-distance college friends is set. The real question on everyone's minds is: do you have the perfect melody to jam to as you journey back to school?
