10 Reasons Why Spring Is Objectively The Worst Season

It's the most terrible time of the year.

10 Reasons Why Spring Is Objectively The Worst Season

Like any self-respecting basic white girl, I love love love fall. It is the season of sweaters, falling leaves, delicious hot coffee and pumpkin-spice everything -- a total dream. Winter and summer are pretty good too, and they have lots of things to be excited about. I look forward to snow days and Christmas music in the winter and some time by the beach in the summer, but the only thing to look forward to in spring is when it will be over.

Let's face it. Spring is an objectively bad season. It is the period of time where we are tired of winter and longing for summer, but all we get is bipolar weather, rainstorms and the occasional, very much unwelcome snowstorm.

1. Pollen

It seems innocuous at first, maybe even a beautiful sign that sweet summer is approaching, but soon it in everywhere -- in your hair, on your car, in your eyes. Then, your allergies start to kick in, and your stuffy nose and sore throat are making you question why you ever thought this was a good thing.

2. Bipolar weather

Last week it was 80 degrees and sunny everyday, and this week we're expected a blizzard! You can never put away your winter coat for good, and now you're tripping on your sandals as you grab your rain boots for the fourth time in a week. Even worse, how are you supposed to dress when your weather app says it's 30 degrees now, but its going to be 60 at 3 p.m.? This is just pure madness!

3. Spring fashion is... questionable

Spring is the time for wearing summer clothes in sub-summer weather or winter clothes when it is simply too hot. There is no clear "spring fashion", like you find in literally any other season.

4. Summeritis

Winter break really doesn't give students enough time to reset and be ready for the upcoming semester. By the end of spring semester, we are all so burnt out and ready to go home and sleep for about 50 days or so, but we have to continue to keep up with finals exams and assignments that we are *so over* at this point.

5. No fun holidays

Summer: Is a holiday, basically.

Fall: Did someone say Halloween?

Winter: CHRISTMAS and New Years

Spring: Really nothing except for Easter, which isn't fun at all, just a lot of time at church if you're Christian and religious and a minor inconvenience because everything is closed if you're not.

6. Bugs.

Probably the best part about cold weather is not having to worry about creepy crawlies showing up everywhere, but during the later months of spring, our old friends start to come back. No. Thank. You.

7. Rain, rain everyday

Is there anything more depressing than rain everyday for a month? I don't think so. I mean, it was cute the first couple days, but after walking home drenched once, I really don't think I need to do it again, thank you very much.

8. Daylight savings (the bad one)

"Spring forward." The two words that bring shivers to my spine. Losing an hour of sleep is a big deal to this over-tired college student. So what we get an extra hour of sun? I'd much rather be cuddled up in my bed.

9. Finals szn

The last couple weeks of the semester are absolutely killer, and they culminate with the worst part of the school year -- finals. Not only are we all burnt out, now we have to try to reign in any last bits of motivation to try to save our grades one last time.

10. People who can't stop talking about their 'beach bod'

I get it, Janet, you went to the gym three days in a row. You look fine, please don't brag about that crazy fad diet you want to go on. You need actual food.

So there you go, spring sucks. You can't claim otherwise, it's just objectively true.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
