The end of the summer season always calls for mixed emotions. As sad as we are to say goodbye to the warm weather, the long summer nights and the idea of doing absolutely nothing, we also cannot wait to go back to school, see our friends and enjoy the fall weather. This rollercoaster of emotions is a lot like watching an episode of Grey’s Anatomy. You can’t tell if you want to laugh it off like Cristina would or cry it out like Meredith. Your emotions hit you all at once and you simply can’t decide what to feel. Here is what the end of summer is like as told by GIFs from the most emotional series of all, "Grey’s Anatomy."

1. When someone mentions going back to school, your immediate reaction is:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F13%2F63606653393014042255982170_i-wanna-go.gif%3Fw%3D500%26h%3D261&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=721&h=90ca5e1bb86622beabe0f584760aa2c50689c1fe5f2498d359a86b488e3688d9&size=980x&c=3930109627 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F13%252F63606653393014042255982170_i-wanna-go.gif%253Fw%253D500%2526h%253D261%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D721%26h%3D90ca5e1bb86622beabe0f584760aa2c50689c1fe5f2498d359a86b488e3688d9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3930109627%22%7D" expand=1]

2. But then you think about having to leave your family and home friends behind for months at a time and you start to get choked up.

3. People are often confused at the mixed reactions.

I mean, how could someone go from so excited to entirely devastated in a matter of seconds?

4. The end of summer means back to school, which means you can't help but think about how your liver is at serious risk.

Syllabus week does some real damage to our bodies, our sense of motivation and our lives.

5. The end of summer also means all that hard work you may or may not have put into your summer body will soon be down the toilet.

Drunken nights means drunken eating. Hello, Weight Watchers.

6. You have to brace yourself for a serious transition.

You're about to go from sitting around all day with little to no responsibilities to having a million deadlines that hit you like a brick wall.

7. It's time to cherish the home cooked meals because the next decent meal you'll have will be Thanksgiving dinner.

Yay for dining hall food, am I right?

8. It's also time to drop every paycheck you made this summer on textbooks. Textbooks.

9. As move in day approaches, your parents break the news that it's time to tackle the most dreaded task of all: packing.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F13%2F636066562587802378-84007357_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=102&h=3fff78a522c9dbb221db00d461e46d4ec8c0078ffd9c3e95a77db1cb94d644eb&size=980x&c=1499139442 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F13%252F636066562587802378-84007357_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D102%26h%3D3fff78a522c9dbb221db00d461e46d4ec8c0078ffd9c3e95a77db1cb94d644eb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1499139442%22%7D" expand=1]

10. Finally the big day comes.

You have to part ways with your family and friends until November. It's almost unfathomable.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F13%2F636066550908785700-1343401879_tumblr_mdhb42mAUQ1rost5w.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=348&h=0f8bed06dbd69cfd27f93b3d8d2d6d025cfb4a35d5745e1363ec610392a100be&size=980x&c=3936425066 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F13%252F636066550908785700-1343401879_tumblr_mdhb42mAUQ1rost5w.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D348%26h%3D0f8bed06dbd69cfd27f93b3d8d2d6d025cfb4a35d5745e1363ec610392a100be%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3936425066%22%7D" expand=1]

11. As sad as this day is, it can also be pretty happy.

This is the day that you reunite with all of your school friends, and the place you've been longing for for the last few months.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F13%2F636066552143961499385075789_tumblr_n2szyj1cdc1s5wtc9o1_250.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=80&h=95fdd234a7bd8dcbe60ba5654baed1de6f0aee7563db05c5063595f617b3c0a4&size=980x&c=1970661289 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F13%252F636066552143961499385075789_tumblr_n2szyj1cdc1s5wtc9o1_250.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D80%26h%3D95fdd234a7bd8dcbe60ba5654baed1de6f0aee7563db05c5063595f617b3c0a4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1970661289%22%7D" expand=1]

12. I know it seems sad, but summer ending means fall is quickly approaching.

And fall coming means winter will arrive soon thereafter. You know what that means?

The Mystery Of The Gospel

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
