PDDD: The Le Moyne College Struggle

RIP Dolphy Day.

PDDD: The Le Moyne College Struggle
Jordan Reilley

PDDD... It's here and it's here to stay. Just in case you don't speak acronym, I'm talking about Post-Dolphy Day Depression, and if you go to Le Moyne College, there's a nine in 10 chance that you're feeling it right now. The sunburns have faded and so have the hangovers. Now we're all left with an OK tan, bags under our eyes, and the burning desire for the semester to just end already. So, are you suffering from PDDD? Check out these symptoms to self diagnose. P.S., this one's probably not on WebMD:

1. You feel the strong urge to day-drink...like, every day until the semester is over.

You'd be lying if you said that you didn't want to post up on a blanket in the quad and crack open a nice cold drink every time it's nice out.

2. You have lost all motivation to do any sort of schoolwork.

Now that it's over, professors want to punish you by giving you 6,000 assignments. And you want to punish yourself by procrastinating all of it.

3. You have a precise countdown until when your last final ends.

Only 19 days, 12 hours, 27 minutes and 45 seconds...but who's counting?

4. You have posted three-plus pictures on Insta because they're all too good to choose just one.

One with bae, one with the squad, and of course a cute selfie in the sun with your drink in hand. The world deserves to know that you had the best day ever.

5. You have a strange craving for those low-qual burgers and hot dogs.

They might not taste as good now as they did during Dolphy Day, but that doesn't mean you don't want more...plus, they're free, so no complaints.

6. You find yourself saying "but what if we just had a second Dolphy Day this year?"

NEW TRADITION, ANYONE? If only I was the wizard...

7. When you see someone's skin peeling from a sunburn, you literally feel their pain.

It's like you have this weird, sunburned bond now. Hey kid I sit next to in class, I know how it happened, bro, and it was well worth it.

8. You (and everyone else) have tweeted about how there's nothing to look forward to now that it's over.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F26%2F6359723470651896791108012198_giphy%2520%2838%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=529&h=200d484a27c1f4fa311d30bb79719214a551db97e1041056187f3e2e61c1524a&size=980x&c=1227219345 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F26%252F6359723470651896791108012198_giphy%252520%252838%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D529%26h%3D200d484a27c1f4fa311d30bb79719214a551db97e1041056187f3e2e61c1524a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1227219345%22%7D" expand=1]

But really though, you're not lying... It's all downhill from here. Until summer, that is.

9. You and your friends have been talking nonstop about what happened (or trying to put the pieces together).

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F26%2F6359723483898908571188058454_giphy%2520%2839%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=444&h=6dace64b005c42b20c531fe32e1ef79775cac254ac6ff41f9a7daa9498cf7d46&size=980x&c=1386927810 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F26%252F6359723483898908571188058454_giphy%252520%252839%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D444%26h%3D6dace64b005c42b20c531fe32e1ef79775cac254ac6ff41f9a7daa9498cf7d46%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1386927810%22%7D" expand=1]

Things might be a little blurry. (Did I like, steal someone's torch? DID I REALLY HOOK UP WITH THAT GUY?) But it's all a part of reliving the fun.

10. You look at your huge, duct-taped cup and cry a little.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F26%2F635972349222077385-1554737396_giphy%2520%2840%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=789&h=86dac483cdc01a3568440c7eaa4ba53d2cd433e3caeb2561f2d073db198cc1a0&size=980x&c=681079585 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F26%252F635972349222077385-1554737396_giphy%252520%252840%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D789%26h%3D86dac483cdc01a3568440c7eaa4ba53d2cd433e3caeb2561f2d073db198cc1a0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D681079585%22%7D" expand=1]

It might still be sort of sticky, and in that case, maybe it's time to just throw it out. But really, even if it's empty, that smelly, taped-up, gallon-sized jug is actually full of memories.

11. You'll be counting down the seconds until the next one rolls around.

Unless you're a senior, in which case, good luck adulting and stuff. I'm sure as hell not ready for that.
