The 4 Good And The 4 Bad Things About Summer Vacation

Summer, here we come! With only a few days left of my semester before the long-awaited four-month vacation, there are many things I am looking forward to. There are also many things that I would rather not deal with when going back home.

1. Good: the warmth!

This time of year lets me not have to wear a jacket outside anymore unless it's raining or something. It’s so nice to not have to wear a jacket just to run outside real quick. The same can be said for the shoes. I'm totally looking forward to not wearing socks for the majority of the summer.

2. Bad: the sunburn...

Remember to wear sunscreen at all times! But if you are lazy like I am. you attempt to take your chances and end up getting something really bad because of it. My family likes to refer to me as a vampire in the summer because of my fear of the sun. Really, it’s because I don’t feel like putting on sunscreen.

3. Good: the traveling!

It’s so great to have so much extra time on your hands to be able to take a road trip if you wanted to. It’s nice to get a change of scenery and to just have a good time if you feel like it.

4. Bad: the summer job…

While my job over the summer is a really good one, a lot of the jobs people have to get over the summer just kind of suck. Like food service, no thanks, I admire all of you, but Jesus, that's a tough job. Retail is even worse. Working six days of the week, not for me. It’s nice, I’m sure, to make bank, but summer jobs kind of suck your summer up.

5. Good: the friends from home!

It’s so exciting to see your friends from home again finally after being without them for several months. You guys have so much time to spend with each other to catch up and just goof around before you all have to go back again. As you get older, you are able to do so much more with your friends than you were before, so you have a lot more freedom and have so much more fun.

6. Bad: the college friends…

You definitely miss your college friends throughout your summer. The time you spent all year, especially all those late nights, are times that will make you want to come running back to school.

7. Good: the family!

It’s so nice to see all of the family you have been missing. You finally get to go to all family functions and don’t feel as left out anymore.

8. Bad: the babysitters…

With the family comes everyone wanting to know your business always. Not that it’s a bad thing, but being home is always hard because you know you managed just fine without having to tell your family where you were going all of the time. It sucks because you shouldn't need someone on your every move.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
