5 Of The Worst Things About Summer

Once April rolls around, summer is basically so close that we can already feel the sand between our toes and taste our favorite, local ice cream flavors on our tongue.

The longing for every student's favorite season can become intense in April, and honestly, kind of painful, as it truly is so close but so far away (like, ten more exams and a few research papers left in the syllabus far away).

So, while we enter the April season of longing for summer warmth and lack of responsibility, I compiled a list of things that will help you not wish for summer yet.

Hot cars

In the winter, getting into your car and cranking the heat is a blissful experience, especially when coupled with a hot chocolate or another warm beverage. In the summer, getting into your car is basically like willingly placing yourself into an oven, and that's without even mentioning the metal of the seat belt that heats up to the temperature of the molten core of Earth.


Not only are actual mosquito bites painful and annoying, living in fear of the pesky insects is almost as bad as the pricks themselves.You haven't experienced the meaning of the word irked yet until you're sitting outside on a lovely summer evening, yet unable to enjoy the beauty of nature because you're anticipating where and when the next bugger will appear (and how best to annihilate them forever).


Summer outfits are cute, until your clothes are sticking to your body disgustingly damp. Summer hairstyles are cute, until your hair is frizzed up to the sky thanks to humidity and heat. Summer makeup is cute, until it's melting off your face in unattractive streaks. I could go on and on, but in summary, sweat is one of the worst things nature can cause us (maybe).


This one applies to my fellow college students. Going from total freedom of doing whatever you want, wherever you want, to being back in your childhood bed telling your parents everywhere you're going all the time, is an unpleasant shock. However, I will mention that the reverse feeling of going from home to the freedom of school makes this initial shock semi-worth it.

The dread of work and summer goodbyes 

Although seeing your college friends after summer, experiencing syllabus week, and loving the warm weather at school before it gets cold are some of the best parts of college, one of the worst aspects of summer is dreading getting back to schoolwork. And at the end, saying goodbye to your best friends and summer flings (not to mention your family and arguably more importantly...your pets).

So in conclusion, who needs summer anyways...right...?

(And I guess that if none of this helped, we're only around 40 days away from summer bliss).

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.
