18 Devastating Signs Your Summer Is Practically Over Already

Here are some sad (and slightly sarcastic) signs your summer might be coming to an end.

18 Devastating Signs Your Summer Is Practically Over Already

If you're like me, summer is your favorite 3 months of the year. With summer only being 3 months, it can go by quickly, especially if you're working. Here are some sad but relatable signs your summer might be over.

1. You’re already packing for school/move in


Packing for August move in means fall semester is starting soon.

2. You’ve decided it’s probably too late to buy more bathing suits


What’s the point of buying more bathing suits when summer is already halfway over?

3. You’re shopping for fall tailgate clothes


Summer ending = fall football season.

4. You’re already buying football fall season tickets


Refer to point 3.

5. You’ve already requested off all the days you have plans for your summer job


After situating all August plans for work, summer feels more like it is coming to an end.

6. You’re already applying for fall semester jobs


Yes, it’s about that time of year to start figuring out fall work plans as your summer job is ending.

7. You’re buying jeans for fall


If instead of buying bathing suits you’re buying jeans, that might mean your summer is almost over.

8. July 4th already happened


All of June is basically just looking forward to July 4th.

9. You’re already thinking about plans for fall break


You have to book those plane tickets!

10. Your August schedule is full


August schedule full = no more summer plans.

11. You’re planning Thanksgiving dinner


Turkey or seafood this year? Travel or stay at home? All of this planning is time sensitive.

12. You’re holiday shopping already


If you are holiday shopping already, that might be a sign summer is over.

13. You’re starting to shiver during the day, prompting the need to buy a fur coat in july


Yes, this might mean summer is over as well. In fact, it might even be winter.

14. You’re screaming Christmas songs from the second you wake up until the minute you go to bed


Only 5 more months!

15. It’s snowing


Since this usually happens in the winter months, this also is a good sign summer might be over.

16. You’re making plans for New Year’s Eve


This usually happens after Christmas.

17. It’s Valentine’s Day


This usually happens in February.

18. It’s Summer 2019


This would indeed mean summer 2018 is over.

If any of these things have happened or is currently happening, your summer '18 might be over, and if you're anything like me, you might be in denial about it. Sadly, summer is only 3 months and according to Phineas and Ferb, 104 days. Happy fall!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
