Being On Summer Break From College As Told By Louise Belcher

Being on break from school for the summer has its ups and downs, that's for sure, and no one can capture those ups and downs like the wildly unpredictable youngest Belcher child. So, without further ado, summer break as told by Louise Belcher.

1. When the heat wave hits and you get a little delirious:

Who cares if I feel like I'm on fire and everything is burning and this air conditioner is more important to me than pretty much anything else? THIS IS FINE.

2. When you Google how long it would take to drive to visit your school friends, and it's not as far as you thought:

The potential for some quality time with the people that it's too hard to go all summer without makes the few hour drive seem very tempting. You've probably already started to plan in your head exactly how to make this happen, and just how much it would cost to pay for gas.

3. When you get so bored of being home that basically anything sounds appealing, if it's something to do:

You definitely shouldn't cook meth, though. Maybe take up a new hobby. Learn how to knit. Let's be honest, at this point, anything would be better than just waiting for the school year to start up again.

4. When you have to work way too much to make up for all the money you carelessly spent at school and have to pretend you don't regret everything:

I'm definitely not sleep-deprived and desperate for a vacation. This is good. Don't be fooled by the bags under my eyes. WHY DID I SPEND SO MUCH ON TACO BELL?

5. When you give your friends who are about to start their freshman year advice on paying for tuition (aka student loans):

Student loans own me, but hey, worth it to get my degree, right? ...Right?

6. When you finally decide to venture out to the beach after spending too much time indoors and are amazed at how obviously pale you look next to everyone else:

I feel like me legs are going to blind everyone around me, but for people like me, it's either this or look like a lobster, so it's the lesser of two evils.

7. When you spend an entire day marathoning TV shows on Netflix and get WAY too invested in them:


8. When you finish a show on Netflix and release just how embarassingly fast you watched it and how much time you just wasted:

I could have gotten so much done, like complaining about the heat and sweating, but Criminal Minds was calling me.

9. When you meet up with old friends and release how much everyone, but particularly you, has changed:

It's okay to not be the same as you were in high school. Growing up is good for you. But it can feel very weird when that alters friendships - that doesn't mean they have to end, they can just change a bit.

10. When you and said friends very quickly run out of new things to do in your hometown so you get desperate for ideas and things get weird:

11. When no matter what year you're heading into, every relative starts to ask what your plans are for after college:


Keep sticking it out through summer break. Get together with old friends and try and find something new and fun to do - chances are, you'll miss your hometown at least a little bit when you head off to school for the year again. Make the best of it, and stay cool.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
