Struggles of it Being "Almost Summer"

Summer 2016 cannot come fast enough.

Struggles of it Being "Almost Summer"

As the weather is warming up, my motivation for things other than tanning, sun, and the beach, is going down. Living in a state where the weather is now sunny and 75, I find myself dreaming of the days where homework and tests don't exist. And then I realize... I have another month and a half of this torture.

Here are some reasons as to why this time of the year is the hardest for a student like me.

1. You're already making a summer bucket list.

You have a Pinterest board dedicated to the summer of 2016, constantly making changes. In class, in the library, before bed; you can't stop thinking of new and exciting things to do in order to make this summer one for the books.

2. Most of your money goes to cute bathing suits that you can't wear yet.

It's honestly torture to me AND my wallet that Victoria's Secret releases their new bathing suits so far in advance.

3. But then you realize that you're far from bikini body ready.

4. So you make a conscious effort to eat healthy and exercise again.

I worked out two times since last summer... shouldn't that be enough?

5. Country music is now the one and only thing you listen to.

Country music is made for being half drunk on the beach in the middle of July. But if I listen to it now, it'll make the time between now and then go so much faster.

6. You take advantage of every nice day you have.

7. Spring Break and Beach Weekend are such a tease.

Let's just skip to summer please and thank you.

8. You realize all the extra work that needs to be done before the end of the semester.

Final exams and projects should be illegal at this time of the year.

9. And your friends tell you that it's impossible to go to the pool AND finish all of the work you have.

10. But then you make it through finals and it's finally the best time of the year.

Here's to summer 2016.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

As human beings, there are just some things that seem to bring us all together with the same sense of irritation. Here are a few of those annoying things that make my list. I'm sure at least some, if not most, of them make yours as well. If you can think of any more relatable annoyances that I've missed, feel free to comment on this article and let me know!

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
