4 Signs That Summer Is Ending

You can't hold it off any longer, the school year is upon us.

4 Signs That Summer Is Ending

The calendar doesn't lie as much as we'd like to think it does. Summer is coming to a hastened ending and the flow of regular life and school is upon us. If it weren't for the calendar reminding us of our looming fate the signs of summer ending would be enough. You may not even recognize the signs now but soon you'll be all too aware...summer is ending.

1. Friends are Disappearing.

Not literally obviously. But yourself and many of your home town friends are heading off across the states to go back to college. They've got recruitment to get ready for, new apartments to move in to, and orientation to get to. No more chilling by the pool or reminiscing about the good ole days. As a home town commuter myself, this is a real one for me as I watch my friends head back to their other lives. They are packing their cars up and saying goodbyes until fall break or thanksgiving (lets be real though we'll see each other on Snapchat).

2. Calories Don't Count Anymore.

In that last weeks that your friends are all heading back home there are many coffee, lunch, and most importantly snoball dates to satisfy. In all that time you tell yourself that the third, thousand calorie snoball of the day doesn't matter because once school starts your body won't see the light of day under the sun. You don't need your summer bod anymore, school is coming and soon enough you'll be huddled down in sweaters and leggings. So, bring on the sweets and sweats!

3. Making Up for that Tan Line.

Even though at this point you've given up on your summer bod as you prepare to hibernate for winter you know you can't go back to school pale. In the last days of summer you're by the pool or just in your backyard trying to catch some sun. You have to look like you had a "fun in the sun" type of summer rather than a "Netflix in bed" type of summer. "No I totally loved the beach with my family that's how I got so tan, no way did I watch all 10 seasons of Friends....three times."

4. Khakis Everywhere.

If all that weren't enough, you realize all your favorite stores are having huge sales! Heading on over to Old Navy so pumped that you'll get 100 dollars worth of clothes for half the price! Until, you realize why. Cute summer tanks and jean shorts are all on sale to make room for all the dreaded school khakis and polos. The last and final sign that bathing suits and pajamas are no longer the uniform of life by the pool and in bed, but back to khakis and polos in a classroom at school.

Now, don't let all this depress you though! You've still got time for one last snoball date with a friend and some hours to punch in under the sun until it's back to a classroom. And rejoice in the Lord because it means football season is upon us, and we know that's what Fall is really all about!!

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things.

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.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

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.
