5 Lies You Tell Yourself In The Summer

When summer comes around, so does ice cream and snow cones and late night pizza trips with your friends.

5 Lies You Tell Yourself In The Summer
Paul Bica

Every summer we all tell ourselves we are going to do this or that, but how often do those things actually get done? As another summer passes us by, I think we can all agree there is a common theme to our "goals" for the summer. That is they aren't going to be achieved. Here are some of the most common lies we tell ourselves.

1. "I'm going to eat healthy."

When summer comes around, so does ice cream and snow cones and late night pizza trips with your friends. Summer ends up revolving around food and you aren't complaining.

2. "I'm not gonna sleep in late."

When your alarm goes off, you realize you won't be able to sleep in when school starts up again so you just hit snooze or turn the alarm off all together.

3. "I'm going to get super tan."

Normally, vacation doesn't last long enough for this. And when you get back from vacation, it's back to work all day.

4. "I'm going to work out everyday."

Between the aforementioned job, all the other lies you tell yourself will also prevent this from happening.

5. "This will be the best summer ever."

This is the lie you tell yourself every. single. year. Eventually, all you end up doing is working and sleeping. When you happen to have free time, finding a friend who also has free time is like trying to figure if Schrodinger's cat is alive or dead.

If you accomplish your goals this summer, I applaud you. However, I think we all have gone through a summer where we at least tell ourselves one of these things and it is never accomplished. Might as well try next summer!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
