11 Struggles That Anyone Who Works Full-Time Over The Summer Can Relate To

You have some extra cash but no free time to do anything remotely fun.

11 Struggles That Anyone Who Works Full-Time Over The Summer Can Relate To

Summer is supposed to be the time when you're free to do whatever you want. No classes to wake up early for, no homework to be completed each night...but what about the bills you've got piling up? Working a full-time job has its ups and downs; you have some extra cash but no free time to do anything remotely fun. These 11 struggles are sure to cross your mind if you're one of the *lucky* ones that get to work full-time jobs this summer.

1. You think you'll get rich fast.

Yeah, til your first month of rent is due or you realize cooking (or eating out) every night is not going to be cheap.

2. You will constantly feel tired.

Working 40 hours a week just might be the death of you.

3. You'll miss your social life.

Sure, you'll have the nights and weekends, but you can kiss those spontaneous weekday beach trips goodbye.

4. You'll surely miss your friends.

You'll quickly learn to love your coworkers, though, since most of your time will be spent with them.

5. You might even miss the school year.

Writing essays and reading textbooks absolutely sucked, but at least there was a point when the workload was over and you could enjoy yourself.

6. You'll learn to have a love-hate relationship with your job.

You love the money and experience it brings you, but you know you're not ready for a full-time job; can we stay in college forever?

7. You probably will have a minimum of five alarms set every morning.

Being an adult is hard work and waking up early is a huge part of that.

8. Your world will revolve around caffeine.

Caffeine, all day every day.

9. You live for the weekend.

Ah, alas, two days you can sleep in if you're lucky.

10. You question how your parents do this every day.

Now you understand why they're always exhausted.

11. You wonder whether or not you're even ready to graduate.

Am I even cut out for this whole adulthood thing?

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
