7 Signs That You Are Ready For School To Start

7 Signs That You Are Ready For School To Start

Sometimes it just can't get here fast enough.

Every year the same dreaded season comes around; Fall. We dread it, not because it gets colder or anything, but because school starts again. Most of us hate the feeling of going back to school after having a relaxing and eventful summer, but there are a few of us that are secretly wishing it would come sooner.

I say secretly because you will most likely be judged for wanting to go back to college, but nevertheless, it happens. There are people that enjoy getting away from home and finding joy in being with your peeps at college. It gives off a sense of responsibility that we like and allows us to be ourselves despite the struggles we may face in actually going to class or passing finals.

If you are one of these people, then this article is for you. Here are 7 signs that you are secretly ready for college to start again:

1. You have already stocked up on school supplies

You are so excited for classes to begin, that you already bought all the school supplies and more that you need; and it's not even "Back To School" savings time yet.

2. You are already trying to get in touch with your college besties

All of your college besties that you left behind in the spring are now ready to mingle and catch up. One main reason you're ready for school to get here is so you can have fun again with your girls/guys.

3. You are buying new things for your dorm

Not that you need any more stuff, you are already buying new things for your dorm that you won't move into for another month.

4. You are scouting out which classes you have with your friends

Being with your friends is a must, especially the ones you haven't seen since last semester. Having the same classes with your friends not only makes going to class more enjoyable for you, but it also makes going to school easier, which is always a plus.

5. You are already trying to make plans and study groups

After going through your first year of college, you now know that there is no such thing as too much studying, which is why you are preparing for it now. This sense of motivation and preparation gives you hope and confidence for the new school year, and that excites you.

6. You talk constantly to your parents about college stuff

As if they weren't already sad enough about you leaving them again, you just can't seem to shut up about it. You are ready for a change and not having to work or stay in the same house everyday. College here we come!

7. You are literally counting down the days

This is probably the funniest of all. You are more than likely counting down the days on a calendar or perhaps your phone until school starts. It's almost like you are a kid again the night before a field trip where you are so excited that you can't sleep.

School for you isn't just fun, it's a getaway place where you can be yourself and that is why you are excited. It's also a place you haven't spent your whole your life (like home) and you are ready for that familiar-strangeness of going to college again.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Cancel Culture Is Toxic And Ugly

Stop deciding for me who I can and cannot like.


I was really hoping that canceled culture died in 2018, but unfortunately here we are in 2019 still "canceling" whoever we personally deem "problematic." Whether it's tweeting from six years ago or falsely made allegations, waves of people will grab on to anything they can to bring down whatever celebrity or influencer seems to be doing well at the moment.

Of course, it is important to bring light to horrible things such as racism, misogyny, domestic abuse, etc., but remember these horrible things are still happening TODAY. We need to focus our energy on combating the horrible things people are currently doing and saying; it is truly such a waste of time to bring up the problematic words and actions that someone in the limelight did almost a decade ago.

Let me be clear, there is no one person I am trying to defend here. I honestly don't care much to personally defend anyone who is being canceled by angry twitter-users who found something just bad enough to hold against them for eternity. I truly just find the idea of it annoying and ugly.

The idea that any person is a completely static, flat character is so inconceivable and unlikely that I truly have a hard time understanding why we cannot accept an apology from a matured person.

If we have no evidence that a person has made any recent damaging remarks, then how can we prove they haven't changed since they tweeted something wrong in 2013?

Of course, there are people who have recently or continuously proven they are indecent people who are not deserving of any sort of public exposure, but if they are truly so horrible, people will drop them without you having to tell them to do so. You don't have to condemn those who still remain loyal; they are probably not the kind of people you need to waste your time on anyway.

If the people canceling others were constantly watched like the people they have damned, I am absolutely sure there is something we could find from their past to cancel them as well.

Sometimes it is hard to remember that famous people are still human beings just like us. Anyone is prone to make mistakes, and those mistakes can absolutely be rectified over time.

Nowadays, people love jumping on the bandwagon of finding a new person to hate and don't even stop to think about the damage it could do to that person's life and reputation.

Give people a chance to prove that they are decent human beings before deciding whether "we" as a whole should love or hate them based on such a small amount of evidence.

I am not saying you have to love every celebrity. If you don't like what someone has said or done you absolutely do not have to give them your attention or devotion, but you should not tell me whether I can like them or not.

In 2019 we should put an end to canceled culture, and, instead, learn to take people at their word and accept their apologies for their past wrongdoings.
