What Happens When The "Sunday Scaries" Last Longer Than Sunday
Only Messages

For school students everywhere, the weekends are a time to blow off steam that has built up over the past week and to let go a little bit.

A lot of the time that includes going out and drinking with some of your friends and draining any last bit of energy you have left in your body. And it's great, it is what students do all around the world, every week like clockwork. But then Sunday comes around. You wake up and realize you have a whole new week ahead of you with work you are dreading doing.

This is known as the "Sunday scaries."

While most of the time it is just a little bit of dread about going back to work, what happens when it feels like more than that? What happens when it passes Sunday and you still feel like you are stuck with the Sunday scaries?

Within my first weeks of being at school, I realized that I take the Sunday scaries to a whole other level. Not only did I find myself laying in bed dreading facing the next week, but I felt as though I had no energy to go back to doing work at all. I felt really down on myself and all I wanted to do was hide in bed from the rest of the big bustling world.

I asked myself, "Why do I feel like this?"

I just had a great weekend of partying and relaxing with my friends, and now I find myself from being at the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. It felt like I wasn't ever going to get out of this funk.

Soon enough it was Wednesday and I still felt painfully sad and worn out and basically decided that I never wanted to go out again because of how I felt after the past weekend. I began to be desperate to get out of this funk, not just because of how I felt, but how I acted. I found myself more harsh and grumpy than usual and secluded myself from everyone. All I wanted to do was go home.

Then, bam!

I woke up Thursday morning with a whole new attitude. My productivity was high and I couldn't wait to go out for thirsty Thursday, even though in the previous days I had sworn off ever going out and having a good time again. I passed off all these feelings as hormones and went on with having another good weekend. That was until a few more weeks passed and again I found myself feeling down yet again.

Through this, I had to learn ways to get my energy and positivity back up again. When this happens, I try to take some stress off myself. While this can be hard to do while in school, there are small things you can do for yourself to revive your emotions.

Try planning out your week better so you can fit in a nap or time to watch a movie or your favorite tv show. Try working out to get your energy back up, and it will help you feel more productive about your week.

If you need to be alone, be alone. But don't seclude yourself from your friends when they are just trying to cheer you up. Finally, remember that these feelings are normal to have. Everyone gets the Sunday scaries sometimes, but it takes everyone different times to get over it.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.
