7 Reactions When Realizing It's The End Of Summer

Summer days are coming to an end.

7 Reactions When Realizing It's The End Of Summer

The summer months always fly by and when they come to an end there is lots of sadness and reality that comes with it.

1. Being pale starts to become reality

Even after having almost four months to bake in the sun, you still don’t look or feel any darker than you did in April. It’s disappointing because in the beginning of the summer you know you felt so confident that you would be “sooo” tan this summer. It sucks even more when you see people that actually look a different race than they did before, jealousy definitely sets in.

2. Having to have an actual schedule again.

Everything starts again; school, sports and regular sleeping patterns. In my opinion, it's way better to go to sleep at 3:00 a.m. and wake up at noon than to try and make it to my 8:00 a.m. looking half decent.

3. Proper Clothing.

Along with the normal schedule comes having to look good every day. It’s no more bathing suits and athletic shorts as my daily outfit. Having to be presentable all the time can be a huge annoyance.

4. Packing for school begins.

This definitely is the most overwhelming one. My stuff from the previous year is now all over my house and I don’t even know how to begin to put my stuff back together again. Thinking about how it’s all going to fit in my tiny apartment is another disastrous issue.

5. Knowing that cold weather is coming soon.

Even though it’s a few months away, the thought of UGG boots and a heavy winter jacket makes me want to vomit. Cold weather has so many more negatives than positives.

6. Somehow you have no money.

After feeling like you worked the entire summer and had absolutely no free time at all, fall begins and you still are broke. You have no money to spend on clothes or books and even have to look around for quarters to do your laundry.

7. Say goodbye to the beach body.

The motivation to look good on the beach slowly dwindles and you tell yourself it’s fine because now you can wear a sweatshirt all the time. It’s OK, you can try again next year.

Although the ending of summer can be upsetting, fall brings lots of fun and new things also. Just think, pumpkin spice lattes will be coming back soon enough!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
