While we love a good countdown, we’re not exactly loving looking at how many days are left until school starts up again. Summer’s dwindling, and we’ve got a lot of feels going on here. From excitement to seeing our college BFF to dreading the 8 AM lecture class, we’re basically a mess of emotions over summer break coming to a close. Here’s just a tiny peek at what we’re going through.
We’re holding onto the end of summer as hard as we can. With only a few days or weeks left, we’re trying to make our nights longer, our parties better, our tans darker. There’s only so much we can do with what little time we’ve got left, but we’re going to try our hardest to make the most of it.
It’s not happening. We’re not reading this article. It’s still June. There’s no telling us any differently. Stop sending us back to school emails and notes about pre-class reading assignments we need to get to because it’s just not happening. Summer is NOT ending.
You mean to tell me that we’ve spent our summer vacay doing nothing?!? Call it “denial” if you will, but I refuse to talk about summer ending. And if you bring up the fact that I have yet to pack for the move-in day one more time, I’ll probably explode on you.
YASSSSSSSS! … I mean… No, I’m not excited to see my best friends, eat my favorite cafeteria food, wear pajamas every day without being judged, play frisbee on the quad, or pledge the sorority this year. No way would I ever be excited over that when compared to the summer…
I thought summer was supposed to be the time to kick back and relax, but now I am being told I need to register for class, make sure my tuition is paid, contact the professor, get my reading assignments done, pack for the dorms, meet a new roommate, sign up for the freshman orientation… Summer isn’t supposed to be about to-do lists!
There was so much we wanted to do and see, and instead, we wasted it watching The Bachelorette from our parent’s sofa. How could we do that when we were going to make it the best summer ever? I mean, there were good times, but now it’s over and it won’t come back for months. It might as well be winter in our hearts.
The last stage of summer ending is the realization that no matter what we feel, it’s inevitable. Summer is almost done, but there are a few more days to make the most of it while we still can. But even with dwindling warm days, there’s a lot to look forward to on the other side. Stay positive, keep cool, and get through the final days of vacation.
