9 Struggles Of Taking Your Summer Classes Even Harry Potter Couldn't Apparate You Away From

TFW you realize you aren't the chosen one.

We couldn't wait for spring semester classes to end, but we've somehow found ourselves still in the classroom. Is it for a fun internship or volunteer work? Nope, it's yet again for class. I ended up deciding to take 15 credit hours this summer, and while I know it's great for the long-run, there are definitely still downsides for now.

1. Remember how you thought you would have free time this summer?

I 100% did not expect online classes to take more time than my in-person ones.

2. "Are you in class?"

I feel like I'm always in class. There will be no messages in the group chat all day, but when I get out of class, I seem to have missed literally everything.

3. "Are you done with homework yet?"

The grind never stops — not even for summer.

4. Finally finding time to see people

It's been a month since spring semester ended, and I've only seen my friends once. It's actually quite tragic.

5. When it comes to family...

I know college students being home for the summer is an adjustment for everyone, but understand that it's an adjustment for us, too. We spent nine months being able to do our work in quiet study rooms and libraries, so working on stuff at home is a very different environment.

6. "Sprint courses aren't that bad."

I don't know about you, but fitting 15 weeks worth of content into six is a lot. Taking an entire language course in six weeks? I would not personally recommend.

7. Trying to balance everything

Netflix shows are calling my name and waiting to be binge-watched, but deep down I know I don't really have time for them.

8. Realizing that the previously mentioned balance does not exist

Well, let's see. I have homework due these days, an exam this day and another exam this day. At least there's a vacation coming up? Joke's on you because you actually have a final during the week you originally scheduled your trip.

9. Knowing this will be you when classes end

You're free! Summer fun can finally begin.

If you're like me, summer classes are probably sucking the life out of you. It'll be OK though, so let's get through the final seven or so weeks together. After this, it'll be time to move back to our personal versions of Hogwarts, and we'll be reunited with everyone for our regularly scheduled squad shambles.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
