We just want a vacation.

7 Thoughts College Students Have During Summer
Aspen Chamber

Summer is the time for relaxing on the beach, going on vacation and having no worries...if you're not a college student that is. We spend our summers taking classes, working summer jobs at non-paid internships, and worrying about if all of our summers are going to be this busy for the rest of our lives. Yes, we know it gets easier, but right now us college kids just want a vacation. Here's some thoughts all students have in summer:

1. I'll have so much free time!

But not actually. Just because you don't have any classes doesn't mean you won't have things to do. Your summer job or internship will keep you so busy that you'll be wishing you were back at college.

2. Taking summer classes was an awful idea.

You signed up for summer classes thinking it would be a great way to get ahead in your curriculum, but cramming 16 weeks of lessons into seven weeks is a lot more work than you thought. Almost all of your free time is spent reading textbooks and you find yourself wishing you were ten years old and loving summer like you used to.

3. I'm going to work out all the time.

You had every intention of waking up early and working out every day. In reality, you spend more time sitting on the couch than actually working out. You ditch the early morning workouts for staying out late and sleeping in. But you'll remind yourself to really start hitting the gym in the fall.

4. Why is it so hot outside?!

The hot weather of summer isn't so fun if you aren't wearing a bathing suit on the beach. Instead, you're stuck wearing suits and work clothes for your summer internship. You long for the days of spring when you didn't sweat the second you stepped outside and you could still wear t-shirts and sweatpants everywhere you went.

5. I. Am. So. Bored.

You thought your summer would be filled with beach trips and sippin' on margs with friends, but instead it's filled with working, taking classes, and whatever else is taking up your time. All of your friends are busy too, and sometimes it's not easy to see each other between your crazy schedules, but you manage to make it work.

6. What can I binge-watch on Netflix?

No matter how busy you may end up being in the summer, you always manage to find time to watch a new show on Netflix. You've watched all the popular shows already, so it's time to poll all your friends on social media and ask about the best shows to watch.

7. I miss all my college friends!

You truly find your best friends at college and it's almost unbearable when you are separated from them in the summer. You wish they were with you during the summer because they would make everything more fun! You are constantly counting down the days until you are reunited with them again, but for now you just have to settle with spending hours on the phone.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.
