5 Signs You Spend Your Entire Summer At Your Neighborhood Pool
Kate Tulenko

Over the summer, I am a member of my local pool, and it is the thing that I look forward to every year. It is such a welcoming and loving facility, and everyone there is family. Even though I am too old for summer swim team there anymore, I love that I still get to work at the pool and see all of my friends every day. So, here are 5 signs that you spend your entire summer at the pool!

1.  You’re ridiculously tan

Kate Tulenko

…and you love it. In the summers, I get so tan and it's my favorite thing ever—people always ask me if it's fake and I'm like "nah."

2.  Your feet are ~extremely~ callused

Kate Tulenko

…and it is ~gross~. I get this all the time from walking around the concrete to constantly having pool toe (or pool foot, in this case).

3.  You know who every single person at the pool is

Kate Tulenko

…but not their real names. You just remember them as "the mom with the pink sunglasses" or "the kid that thinks he knows how to swim, but really doesn't so DON'T LET HIM SWIM ALONE."

4.  You and your friends know all the words to that ~one song~

Kate Tulenko

…country roads, take me home. You and your friends have this one anthem that you guys constantly listen to, to the point that it annoys all of the other members.

5.  Your pool friends are your favorite people

Kate Tulenko

You guys will talk about anything that comes to mind and are constantly laughing about the stupidest stuff—there are too many inside jokes to count!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

14678

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
