1. Reuniting with your high school friends reminds you of your innocence, which makes you feel old

2. You pretty much work all summer long, not much time for the fun and games you used to have

3. Parental authority is something you still have to fall under when you come home for summer

4. There is never enough time in the days to do what you want

5. August means most of your friends are going back to school and you are forced to return to reality again

6. Trying to maintain a sleep schedule is nearly impossible

7. Four months of summer sounds a lot longer than it actually is

8. Laying in bed watching Netflix is highly frowned upon
