Worst Parts Of A Lake House

The 15 Worst Things About Going To The Lake That Only Lake People Understand

It's not all fun and games.

The 15 Worst Things About Going To The Lake That Only Lake People Understand

Some may say the most wonderful time of the year is Christmas, but for many it is going to the lake house for the weekend. Nothing beats tubing, swimming, having campfires and playing games all weekend. But despite all the fun you have there are still some definite downsides to spending your weekend at the lake.

1. Rugburn

Holding on for dear life on the tube means your knees, elbows, stomach, toes and more are going to get all scratched up for weeks.

2. Having to wait your turn to go on the tube

Yeah, it's funny to watch people get knocked off the tube, but being either frozen or scorching hot while waiting is not fun. Meanwhile your hair looks like this.

3. Sunburn

It doesn't matter if you put on sunscreen every 30 minutes you will still somehow get burnt.

4. People eating your food

No matter how hard you try and hide your food someone is going to find it and eat it. There is no my food your food at a lakehouse.

5. Literally dying when you get knocked off the tube

I think this says it all.

6. Losing your bottoms

When you get flipped off a tube or fall of water skis there is a really high chance that your bottoms will come at least a little bit off. Now comes the hoping against hope that no one saw your butt.

7. Being chocked by your life jacket

It's an indisputable fact that no life jacket fits correctly, which means it will probably choke you once you jump in the water.

8. People taking your life jacket so you get the wrong size

Despite there not being a life vest that actually fits you correctly, you have a favorite one and you know you are about to come to fists when someone else takes it.

9. Going to bed late AND waking up early

Being at a lake house means staying up way past your bedtime, but still getting up super early either because you want to get out on the lake before everyone else or because everyone else is already up and being loud.

10. Being so sore

Yep, everything hurts and you're dying.

11. Bees and mosquitoes

They are EVERYWHERE. The bees follow your food around and the mosquitos seem to multiply. It doesn't matter that you are wearing a sweatshirt and sweatpants and socks because somehow the mosquito will still manage to bite you.

12. Literally having 20 people living in one house

This house was probably made for a family of four but for some reason, you've decided to fit 20 people in there for the weekend.

13. Cleaning the house before you leave

The dreaded hour and a half where you wash all the sheets and vacuum all the rooms. At this point in the weekend you are super tired and just want to sleep on the drive home, but instead you are stuck washing and drying dishes.

14. Too many people on the lake

It's hard to do anything with the wakes of two million boats rocking you around!

15. Knowing you won't be back until next year

Despite all the downsides you wouldn't want to spend your weekend anywhere else.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
