The 5 Stages Of Making Summer Plans

(As explained by Kardashian GIFs.)

The 5 Stages Of Making Summer Plans

1. The Initial Idea

"Let's go the beach for three days next week." There it is, the idea. You and your friends make eye contact as unanimous smiles creep up your faces. Let's do it, we are going to go to the shore and have the time of our lives, well...we're going to try.

2. The Follow-Up

Now it's time to plan-—who is going to do what, go where and pay for whom. This is the most essential part of the proposal. The follow-up turns what was one just an idea into a blueprint for action. All of a sudden calls are being made and deposits sent. It's getting real, and let's hope it stays that way.

3. The Argument

This is inevitable. Every time a group tries to create some sort of semi-elaborate objective in order to accomplish a task, they cross a small bump in the road. No need to be discouraged, just reassign who is going to get food from the supermarket and who is going to order the beach tags and we'll be all set.

4. Anticipation

It's getting closer to the time of the event, and everyone is actually pretty excited. You've got your suit, towel, money, place to stay and itinerary for what is going to happen. You're ready to hit the road and drive down to the beginning of a great summer memory!

5. The Finale

I am going to give a little tip that may just save your summer plans down the line: someone always flakes. And per usual, the person who was supposed to book the motel not only didn't come through with that but is now simply not going to be coming. There is always some convenient excuse to explain the mishap. They have work, somewhere else to go or "not enough money." All perfectly fine reasons for not attending our beach trip...but not when you wait until the last minute to cancel!

However, summer '16 cannot be stopped. We're going to the beach's not illegal to sleep in a car right?

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
