I'm "Waitin On My Sunny Day"

I'm "Waitin On My Sunny Day"

Summer cannot come fast enough.

Most days I really love my school, but then there are days or weeks that make me wish I had chosen a school that got out of summer earlier. Now, this wasn’t even a factor when I decided to come here, however recently I’ve been having a bad case of wanting summer.

My friends who go to other schools are most definitely not helping my situation. They all finish school within the next two weeks, and I’m sitting here counting down the days. There’s 28 left in case anyone was wondering.

Why might this school go so long into the month of May you ask? Well, it’s because they give students two months off for winter break all so that they can fit a winter session into that time. It all comes down to money.

The longer we stay in school, the more money they acquire. And I’m not saying I mind being at school. I love hanging out with my friends and I love the campus. It’s just the amount of work and exams I’m dealing with that I’d rather forgo.

Now, it might seem like I’m really hating on UD here. That’s not the case at all! I’m just getting a little grumpy with wishing for summer to come sooner rather than later. Maybe my summer mood was shifted into gear when we were given the beautiful weather a few weeks ago, and now we’re stuck with ‘meh’ weather until it changes again.

My mood definitely correlates with the weather. I don’t think I would mind being here if I could sit outside on the green and do my work with some friends while listening to music. The nice weather just brings out the happiness in all of us.

As I’m sitting writing this, the weather is bleak and windy and rain is in the forecast! Typical April weather. One way I have been getting through my ‘summer blues’ is listening to Bruce Springsteen. Yes, I am a Jersey girl through and through.

If anyone has passed my room in the last few days, you’re most likely to hear some Bruce and the E Street Band blasting from the other side of my door. It’s the little bit of summer that I can bring to dull Delaware this time of year.

Most recently I was listening to “Waitin On A Sunny Day”. I didn’t realize how much it applied to my summer longing until I was telling a friend about it. It not only pertains to this gray day here, but it also relates to my countdown until summer.

For me, Bruce is the way to get into the summer mood. There’s nothing like picturing driving over the bridge to the beach, seeing the ocean, and having ‘Born To Run’ blasting out of my car speakers.

I know anyone who is a beach bum like me is anxiously waiting for their sunny day. It will come soon enough, we just need to hold on a bit longer and chase the clouds away.

Cold Weather Means Binge-Watching Everything

It's that time of the year: hot chocolate, movies, and cuddles!


Winter break is basically here and with all the free time, what better way to spend it than binge-watching every single movie and show possible. Here are some suggestions you might love!

1. "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina"

If you were as obsessed with "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" as I was as a child than this show will restart your obsession. It is a darker version of the original, but just as intriguing.

2. "Orange is the New Black"

If you haven't hopped on the "Orange is the New Black" train, isn't too late! The show will keep you on your toes so much that I think I even might have binged watched a little too quick!

3. "Disenchantment"

The perfect show to start of your break. Your brain is dead from finals week and this cartoon is precisely what you need: a little laughter and no thinking.

4. "Set it Up"

This may not be a television show, but the movie is yet another good, funny romance. Two interns struggling to gain time for themselves and their real lives end up wrapped up in their bosses love lives and eventually, their own.

5. "To All the Boys I've loved Before"

Yet another movie, but definitely a must see. When it first came out, ALL of my friends were watching it, so if you haven't seen it yet, I won't spill any details. Just try it out.

6. "The Kissing Booth"

The last movie, I promise, but this one is a little iffy for some. It is the utter definition of a classic romance movie. If all you need is a happy ending and a perfectly predictable movie... well, here you go.

7. "Big Mouth" 

Yet another no-brainer! "Big Mouth" is also a cartoon with laughter and it doesn't require much brain power. If you pay attention to the details, you'll realize it is much wittier and clever than you ever realized.

8. "Stranger Things" 

Three words: dangerous, creepy and thrilling. "Stranger Things" didn't catch my eye until someone forced me to sit down and watch it. If you get hooked, season 2 has even more twists and turns than the first season! Better yet, season 3 should be right around the corner and releasing with the new year so perfect timing for a binge-watching.

9. "13 Reasons Why"

Tragic and emotional is all I have to say. The mysterious, tragic love story for anyone and everyone.

10.  "Black Mirror" 

The random, strange stories told through this show have caught the world's attention, but there are endless episodes, so start from the beginning and work your way through in order. Each episode acts as its own, completely irrelevant to the previous episodes. No need to watch them in order!

11.  "Ozark" 

This one reminds me of "Breaking Bad!" If anyone loved that show, this might be for you. A money laundering father leads his family on a runaway after a deal goes wrong.

12.  "Safe"

A mysterious story with the main character, played by one of my favorites, Michael Hall, aka "Dexter". The story entails a missing daughter, a lost father, and a tragic secret from many years before. Better yet, it includes many other mysteries that I shouldn't tell you about. Do yourself a favor and go find out the answers to them!
