There is an epidemic out there that has begun to effect college students across the nation. As students returned from their tropical spring break vacations, many have become stricken with this crippling disease. It comes quickly, and often times it is brought on within a few hours. It can last for months at a time, leaving students helpless in their efforts to cure themselves. This illness can leave students with lowered levels of motivation, a strong longing for summer, and the occasional sunburn. Most professionals are calling this disease “Spring Fever” and urge students to look out for any possible symptoms. But what exactly are the signs of “Spring Fever?”
1. You put on your brightly colored, springtime outfits and refuse to take them off.
Everyone knows that after you switch out your winter clothes for your spring clothes, there is no going back. You have been waiting to wear that floral dress since you bought it on sale last October and no one is going to take that away from you.
2. You are in an infinitely better mood, for no apparent reason.
Sometimes all you need is a little sunshine to bring you out of a wintertime funk, but it's not just you. Everything and everyone just seem to be more pleasant.
3. You insist on doing all of your homework in your hammock.
Since it's warm, you want to spend every ounce of your free time outside. So, naturally you grab your hammock and your backpack and find a nice spot to spend the day. But as you attempt to set the hammock up and place both you and your backpack inside of it, you're so exhausted that you end up just taking a nap.
4. You Ignore the fluctuating weather and wear your sandals or Chacos regardless of temperature.
Even though your weather app tells you that it is going to be 40 degrees in the morning, it will be 75 degrees in the afternoon. What more information could you need? Naturally, 75 degree weather is sandal weather, and those Chacos aren't coming off until next fall.
5. You obsessively think about your summer plans.
Springtime is just a taste of what summer will be, so of course you need to know how you will spend those three months. While all of your friends talk about their internships and exotic trips, you too need to figure out what to do, so why not daydream a little?
6. You never let go of the hope that your classes will be held outside.
Rarely does class happen outside, but there's always that slight chance; don't stop dreaming.
7. Even the rain can’t bring you down.
They say that April showers bring May flowers, which obviously means that it is going to rain five afternoons in a row.
If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, chances are, you have already been exposed to the disease. So, your best bet is to grab your sunglasses and flip flops, because spring is here.
