The Summer After Freshman Year Of College: As Told By New Girl

Starting college was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. But, if you are anything like me and feel like your freshman year was actually just three minutes, or you're a fan of New Girl (which you should be), I 10/10 recommended reading.

1. Realizing that your first year of college is actually over: You are getting old and it is scary.

2. But not really caring BECAUSE IT'S FINALLY SUMMER: No homework = hibernating for the next three months in hopes of getting tan.

3. Accidentally running into people from high school is your worst nightmare: Avoid going out in public at all costs.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F03%2F636005742623933091-1230309614_giphy-2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=549&h=30e5e67a7075c7deba924e7de2b074d73268e1d3170b9de4fd0677cc1a3d317c&size=980x&c=4169112858 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F03%252F636005742623933091-1230309614_giphy-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D549%26h%3D30e5e67a7075c7deba924e7de2b074d73268e1d3170b9de4fd0677cc1a3d317c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4169112858%22%7D" expand=1]

4. People ask what your plans are for the summer: Not much to be honest, probably a lot of sleeping, eating, and Netflix, and more eating. No I don't have an internship, and probably will not have a job either (just kidding yes you should get a job).

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F03%2F6360057456886710321597445952_giphy-4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=362&h=718ebc5b601a4789a3e14e76fe5d3b1cdf52b7eb6de22a3e495c1df5b14f4e0e&size=980x&c=2531204695 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F03%252F6360057456886710321597445952_giphy-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D362%26h%3D718ebc5b601a4789a3e14e76fe5d3b1cdf52b7eb6de22a3e495c1df5b14f4e0e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2531204695%22%7D" expand=1]

5. Example A: Summer plans include errands and a smoothie.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F03%2F636005753390006312925556723_giphy-7.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=319&h=cdb7b6d0bf417272f6f6796c8b8a1085b04934f6839e2b1a2a3ab5baec7f0157&size=980x&c=3271473634 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F03%252F636005753390006312925556723_giphy-7.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D319%26h%3Dcdb7b6d0bf417272f6f6796c8b8a1085b04934f6839e2b1a2a3ab5baec7f0157%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3271473634%22%7D" expand=1]

6. You can finally eat a meal without using your school ID: You realized that mom's dinners were actually so much better than dorm food.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F03%2F636005747356807141-2048805333_giphy-5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=159&h=2e0cced63bbb191b2351b816256d9508fb9b669eb7a46ad50c27dd8a016de6a5&size=980x&c=2300956286 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F03%252F636005747356807141-2048805333_giphy-5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D159%26h%3D2e0cced63bbb191b2351b816256d9508fb9b669eb7a46ad50c27dd8a016de6a5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2300956286%22%7D" expand=1]

7. After a year of living without parents, any question about your plans for the night are too much: Can I just go to chipotle without being interrogated?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F03%2F636005751525983131311271554_giphy-6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=921&h=ecf2f13708593dc8d701f39171602d9fadf59a926f5ba259d2d38a31e5b1f310&size=980x&c=4246518709 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F03%252F636005751525983131311271554_giphy-6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D921%26h%3Decf2f13708593dc8d701f39171602d9fadf59a926f5ba259d2d38a31e5b1f310%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4246518709%22%7D" expand=1]

8. If anyone tries to ask how your first year of college was: I don't know, I had a few over-nighters, 3-7 mental breakdowns, don't remember any weekend, and might have made it to the gym once. But, I am alive, so who is complaining?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F03%2F636005756630806302-1857439571_giphy-8.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=253&h=0dcb05199be7fd6c4abe0d1d7dc57de5e5338f70dce996c1a3ce2ca6873930d3&size=980x&c=718958298 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F03%252F636005756630806302-1857439571_giphy-8.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D253%26h%3D0dcb05199be7fd6c4abe0d1d7dc57de5e5338f70dce996c1a3ce2ca6873930d3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D718958298%22%7D" expand=1]

9. Overall, you are just happy that you did it: Being done with the first of college a great feeling, and it is time to celebrate.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
