10 Reasons Summer Is The Very Best Season, No Doubt About It

Other than not having to worry about school work, there are many other reasons I'm excited for summer!

10 Reasons Summer Is The Very Best Season, No Doubt About It

From enjoying the warm weather to spending time with my friends, summer truly makes me so happy. This season gives me so much to look forward to. And, let me share them with you!

Experiencing the warm weather

Anyone who lives in the Midwest knows how exciting this is, especially after a rough winter. Dealing with freezing cold temperatures for months straight is not fun. I can't wait to roll down the windows of my car and enjoy the warmth!

Hanging out with friends

Hanging out with my friends is always a good time, but summer is always more fun. There are so many fun activities we like to do, like go to music festivals or have a movie night. I can't wait to come home this summer because I haven't gotten to spend a lot of time with them since being away at school.

Starting my summer job 

Being an education major, I am going to be a camp counselor for five and six-year-olds this summer and I am very excited. This is my first time working at a day camp and it's not always going to be easy, but I'm up for the challenge!

Being sun-kissed and glowy

This is a given. Being pale stinks sometimes. Plus, considering I'll be working poolside all summer, I'm expecting to get my tan on — super exciting!

Swimming at the pool

As a day camp counselor, I'll be in the pool every day, like, you have no idea how pumped I am. I've always loved swimming! Might I mention that you tan better in the pool?

Sleeping in my bed at home

Only college students know and understand this one. My bed at school is not nearly as comfy and spacious as the one I have at home (so sad, TBH). I'm really looking forward to spending the next three months sleeping in it!

Taking a bath

I know this may sound so silly. But, as a college student who is living in the dorms, I'm starting to really miss being able to take a bath. I just want a nice bath with some bubbles and that's it!

Driving to places instead of walking

As a college student, I'm getting really sick of walking everywhere. There's also a level of freedom that comes with driving. I miss it so much so you can bet I'm looking forward to having that sense of freedom once again.

Spending quality time with my family

This is a big one for me. I really have missed my family while being away at school. I can't wait to simply be able to eat meals and watch TV with them again.

 Having a fresh new start before next semester

Classes can be overwhelming. Sometimes, a break is all you need. Overall, I'm using this break to have time for myself to relax and take a mental break before next semester starts.

There are many reasons I'm excited about the summer. These are just my top 10. Now, as you prepare for summer break, think about some of the things you're looking forward to!

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
