For everyone out there who felt like school was never going to end and summer couldn't get here fast enough.

  1. You’ve had a countdown to the last day of school since September. It was so satisfying to watch that 180 tick all the way down to
  2. Beach tomorrow!
  3. [rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]
  4. You burst out the front door of the building as soon as that final bell rings. You’ve done your time this year, and if anyone wants you back in this building, they're going to have to use force.
  5. You cleaned out your locker before spring break so you wouldn't have to impede your last-day escape. It's not like you stored much in there to start, but you refuse to stick around and clean it on the last day!
  6. You've been on autopilot ever since spring break ended and classes resumed. All you can think about is the blue skies and sunshine waiting for you, and math class is not about to step on your dreams of getting out there.
  7. You’ve been wearing crop tops constantly, even when it's cold. Nothing screams summer like a crop, and once you switch from sweaters, it's too late to go back.
  8. You're already a mainstay in the block party scene, and finals aren't even over.
  9. You've been completely ignoring classes in favor of day trips and concerts. Honestly, who wouldn't rather go to the beach than study?[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]
  10. You already know which beaches are the most crowded and have planned your vacation accordingly.
  11. You've been spending lots of time outside tanning, even though the sun *technically* isn't at the right angle for optimum tans.[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]
  12. You listen to the Summer Top 40 playlists from summers past, all day, everyday. What do Taio Cruz, Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj have in common? Other than being on your playlist, virtually nothing, but their songs bring back the joy of being free for the summer.
  13. You go out for ice cream and sit outside to eat it, even if it’s chilly out.
  14. You wonder why the sun is going down so early, and then you remember that 8pm is pretty late, considering it is still spring.
  15. You picked up this summer's must-reads the day they were released in preparation for your summer reading. We won't judge if you've already read them. Actually, we assumed you already did.[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college.
