22 Reasons When You Know You're In A Summer Slump, As Told By "Friends"

July. How is it July? How is it the MIDDLE of July? How is summer nearly over? We're finally half way to August, meaning it's almost time to head back to school. Up until this point summer has been flying but now, not so much. For some, summer is hardly summer because of online classes, summer sessions, work, internships- but ya know, it's still summer.

It's all fun and games but then it gets to a point when that mean 'ole summer slump finally hits. It's a drag.

Here's 22 reasons when you know you're in that summer slump as told by "Friends."

1. Everything seems to suck.

2. Your mom notices this slump and TRIES to comfort you...

3. You can't tolerate your colleagues anymore.

4. Only to soon realize you're going to miss some a whole lot.

5. Food shamefully becomes a main source of comfort.

6. But you really are over doing tedious intern ~b*tch~ work.

7. You kind of feel empty inside sometimes.

8. Your friend's are starting to have a lighter schedule but not you because... poor.

9. You tend to snap quicker than usual..

10. You're so sleep deprived you become delusional.

11. You weirdly contemplate downloading Tinder again.

12. Other people hit the slump and are pathetically sliding into your DMs and you hate that you love it.

13. You almost hate seeing people have fun via Snapchat.

14. But hey, when the weirdo at the bar hits on you, you go with it.

15. Then low-key admit to yourself you wish you had a summer romance.

16. But then you realize you would rather be punched in the face.

17. Missing school hits you harder because it's your favorite place.

18. Oh, but classes...

19. ... And it's almost football season which means 8 AM drinking.

20. Then you realize you're screwed because of your tolerance.

21. The "I'm NOT crazy" feeling strolls on in.

22. But then ya remember that all slumps come to an end. Hallelujah!

Slumps happen but who cares, whatever. You're a rockstar. Stay golden. If Ross, Monica, Chandler, Joey, Rachel, and Phoebe-- even Gunther, can make it through, I can assure you that so can you.

It's called growing up, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Life is only going to get better, wilder, and most importantly, fun. Just let the good times roll.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer.

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.
