The back to school blues

Accepting The Fact That Summer Is Over

Every year I am hit by the back to school blues, however this year seems a bit more amplified because my summer was compressed due to my school’s attempt to convert to the semester system. So with only a couple of days left in my summer break before I head back for yet another school year, my mood is a bit somber to say the least. In fact, I have dreaded this moment for about two months but let’s face it, I need to accept the fact that summer is over. Cue Majid Jordan's "Summer Over Interlude" off Drake's last album, Views.

It’s that time of year again. The time where we all begin stressing about finding ridiculously overpricedbooks for a decent price, receiving alright grades on our exams, gettingenough sleep, and whether or not we’ll be able to find a parking spot. No more taking daily trips to the beach. No more going to bed at two in the morning and waking up at noon. No more being lazy and spending hours binge watching TV shows on Netflix, it’s time to get serious. I am entering my third year in college and there is absolutely zero margin for error from here on out. So as I say goodbye to my favorite time of the year, I know that it is time to lock in with my schoolwork because there is a bigger task at hand, which is graduating on time. I ready and completely motivated to have two great semesters this upcoming year.

Although I am sad that my summer is over, I need some structure in my life and school provides that for me. I’ll try my best to hold back my tears during the dreadful syllabus week by singing the “Back to school” song from Billy Madison. In case you don’t get that reference, below is how I’ll be on the first day of school:

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
