9 Thoughts Everyone Has One Month Into Summer

Is it time to go back to school yet?


It's officially one month since I moved back home for the summer and started my four-month-long vacation. To me, as excited as I am to be home, part of me already wishes that I could be back at Rowan enjoying all the things that college has to offer. I mean, seriously, in the summer I hang out with the best people ever and have a lot of fun with my family, but not a day goes by that I don't want to go running back to the home of the Profs.

1. When you can actually move around more than just one floor of space and can hang out wherever you want.


Like honestly, I love sitting in my living room, then chilling in my room, and then making food in a kitchen that is bigger than a bathroom.

2. When you get to see your home friends whenever you want.


"You want to go to the movies? Or maybe just chill at my house? Down!"

3. When you can’t actually hang with them whenever you want because now you live in a house with people that do actual things with their lives, and you also have a job to go to.


Like nah fam, it's fine, go ahead without me and do all these awesome things. If it's between 5 P.M. and 8 P.M., it's definite, but any later, the likelihood is kind of slim.

4. When you get to spend more time with your family… for better or for worse.


I mean, you would think your fam would be thrilled to have you home, but it wears off the second you step through the door. Sorry, fam.

5. When you see someone you know take a picture at school.


Like I'm honestly insulted that I wasn't invited! It sucks even more that I have friends there all summer… like I miss you!

6. When you realize that you have to do adult things while you are home and seriously lack the ridiculousness factor that you had during the semester.


I don't want to adult and run errands! I want to sleep until noon, watch movies all day, and be praised for doing so!

7. When you realize you aren't going back to school any time soon.


I miss it so much!

8. When you realize going back to college starts the homework, papers, and classes again.


Can I just pick the fun parts of college, please?

9. When you remember you have all summer to have so much fun with people from home and school!


Live it up, people! Cherish your summer!

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
