Summer vacation is awesome. It's a time when you can forget about all of your worries and responsibilities-or is it?
Especially when you're a college student, you realize there is a lot more to think about over the summer other than nothing.
1. Getting a job
Having a source of income for the summer is essential for college students. Then there's the question of if you'll have a job when you get back on campus. It's not easy being a full-time student but it can be harder when you have no cash what-so-ever.
More scholarships. Financial aid. Making sure all of this and more is ready to go before you go back to school. College is great, but it's expensive.
3. Dorm shopping
You would think you have it all based on your first year purchases. However, circumstances change; you could have a completely different living space, you found out you need something specific, you're tired of your average decor. Whatever the case may be, it requires money.
4. Not seeing your college friends
This isn't as much stressful as it is sad. You don't get to see some of your best friends every day and that, frankly, sucks. Some of them may even live out-of-state. It is also implied that you would need money to go see them in one way or another.
Let's just assume that all of these stress inducing factors depend upon money. If only money grew on trees...
If you're a planner, like me, you start to discover more and more of the errands that you have to get done before the new semester begins. Granted, summer was more or less made to forget about those worries for the moment, so for now, enjoy!
