5 Things About Bama You WON'T Miss Over The Summer

What you won't be missing from Tuscaloosa over break.


With summer break arriving, students will be leaving for home, vacation or internships until its time for their return in August. So I have compiled a list of things we college students will not miss during our time away from Tuscaloosa.

1. Cooking for ourselves every night

Those of us who are known by name at the food court or has no meal swipes will especially be happy about this over the summer

2. McFarland Traffic in the morning and afternoon

At 8 am and around 5 p.m. on weekdays when you either need backroads or leave for your destination ten minutes early just so you can arrive on time

3. The students who walk three across on the sidewalks

When your stuck behind or heading to a group of students who decide there allowed to all walk next to each other on the destination and won't move over at all.

4. Looking for parking on campus

The struggles of finding parking near the bus stop or your building after the first morning classes started as all the good parking spots are already taken or you have to battle another car for that one great spot.

5. Class

No more waking up early to be in class or staying up all night just to study

Even though this will only be a small break it is still one that is needed. But in the end no matter what we all can not wait until August when we are back to rolling with the tide.

No, I'm not sick...

Nope, that's just my face.

You Deserve This Endless Summer

Chase the summer sun solo!


We all come home as summer rolls around. Come back with new plans and ideas to make it the best summer we have ever had. Once we arrive we begin to see that things have changed. Places, people, routines, and us. We have changed in so many ways, we had new experiences through our school year, learning to live and love the college lifestyle while trying to hold on to what we have left back in our hometowns.

Everything seems weird, the people and the places you enjoyed going with them to. We came back ready to dive into all the endless places for summer fun and realize that plans change. We find ourselves confused about what really changed and it's us. We have grown so much and new things and people interests us. But don't you fret! Do not sulk in this summer sadness as the brilliant Lana Del Rey would say. Let's face it: the truth hurts, but we have the opportunity to make this the best summer in our lives. Sounds cliche? Oh well, it's true so let's find that light and shine through this hot summer!

It's okay if your old friends are not interested in the things you are into. That just means you're going to have to fly solo for a bit! Look up to the older role models in your life. Chit chat with them see what ideas they have for you. No one said you couldn't do this on your own.

So, be Miss or Mr. Independent this summer. Take yourself to the beach and soak up some rays. I bet you will find someone at the beach doing just the same as you. Be that social butterfly and spark up a conversation! That's how you meet people, right? You speak to them, learn about their passions and listen to their funny stories from the past. There is always something or someone to learn about. Open up that heart of yours and allow all the love and light to flow through this summer.

We all feel a little lost in the summer, but sometimes we have to get lost to find ourselves. Remember once you start doing the thing you enjoy everything else will fall into place. You will begin to meet people who share the same love for the things you do. You just have to take yourself there. So go catch that summer sun and never let go of it!
