Goodbye Summer

Writing the title of this post took every ounce of energy I have left after what seems like a summer of working. I know we all spend our summers working, but oh my gosh. This is the first summer in the history of, well, ever, that I've thought, "Wait, summer can't end." I am a fall baby all the way. I love it. But, the thought of classes starting and having homework on top of all the other stuff I already have to do kind of makes me want to throw up. Really, you should see my to-do lists.

There are some things you just can't change though, and the fact that I have my first class at 3:00 today is one of them. Did I mention it's three hours long? Jokes on jokes. And fingers crossed it doesn't actually go that long. This summer has some major highs and major lows; it's been by far the most beneficial summer for me. I've learned a lot, worked a lot, and laughed a lot. A good combination if you do ask me!

Anyway, I've seen a lot of "Hey, it's ok!" posts out there this summer. Inspired by Glamour and my favorite blogger, The College Prepster, I've decided to do my own as a kind of testament to this summer and all it's taught me.

To eat a completely oversized bowl of stove-popped popcorn a day.
To kiss the boy you'll never in your life see again.
To color code your planner compulsively.
To wake up to a room completely destroyed by getting ready the night before.
To eat pizza at 2a.m.
To legitimately dream about Chris Soules from The Bachelorette.
To spend a rainy day holed up with your best friend watching Dirty Dancing, eating cupcakes, and ordering in.
To drink a bottle of wine on a Wednesday night while watching Love Actually.
To spend every spare moment (though few and far between) binge-watching HIMYM. 
To drop your phone in a toilet at a country concert.
To tell all your friends you dropped your phone in a toilet at a country concert.
To forget to check that all the members of the gym you work at are out of the building BEFORE you close it up (oops!).
To hang out with friends until 6am just talking about who knows what.
To go to Mexico and indulge in as many fruity drinks as possible (#judgeme).
To practically cry at a Disney fireworks show.
To force your family to watch every  fireworks show that Disney World has to offer.
To bawl your eyes out at the movies, tissue box in hand.
To talk to your dog like they're an actual person, because really, aren't they basically?
To not want to go back to classes because holy crap, you're graduating in May.
To not want to grow up.
To, at the same time, want to grow up.
To secretly like (gasp!) Mondays.

Happy Monday!

I totally understand this! And I love these, "It's Okay" posts... I obsessively colorcode my planner too. One of my favorite pens that I used to color code just died, and I'm so devastated! It's okay to not want to grow up. My cousins used to joke and call me Peter Pan... anyways, have a great Monday!
