6 Struggles of the Early Summer Season

May is a weird month. College students are done with finals, and all other students can see summer break right on the horizon. There a few really warm and sunny days sprinkled into the week, but the weather is still extremely unpredictable. Is it supposed to be spring? Pre-summer? No one is really sure. But here are some signs you are just as confused as we are.

1. Making plans that rely on the weather never work out

Planning to go to the beach in a couple of days because the weather app says it's going to be 85 and sunny? Have fun at the movies when it turns out to be 65 and cloudy.

2. You're not even sure what your skin tone is

You've gotten a couple of good tanning days in, but they've been interrupted by those cold, cloudy days in-between. You're not ready for that super tan foundation you own, but at the same time your foundation from winter isn't quite right either. Help.

3. Never being dressed appropriately

The amount of times I have left my house in a rain jacket and leggings just to have it end up being a really nice day.

4. Boredom

When planning for summer break with all my hometown friends we had visions of beach days, fire pits, nights in the city and mini road trips. But with work and unpredictable weather, we've resorted to lots of $5 movie nights.

5. Still looking for that summer job

Summer for college students mean scowering their local towns for any business that's looking for seasonal work. Even though summer has technically started, a lot of us are still searching for change in our couches and cars.

6. Saving listicles on "fun summer ideas"

You're dreaming of those consistently nice days that are soon to come. We can only hope all those articles can be put to use soon.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
