How to deal now that break is over

I've got good news and bad news. Good news is that break is almost over and it's time to go back to school. That means you get to hang out with your friends and have all the freedoms that come with being away from home. Bad news is you have to go back to school and well, school kind of sucks? Who wants to do homework when you can binge Netflix all day? I certainly don't. But hey, if you have to start a new semester... at least you can start it off with a brand new you.

If you hate walking to class:

Dr. Martens have often been seen as ~rebellious~. Get yourself a pair of the originals to show your professor that you don't give a f*ck when class starts (although you'll be there with five minutes to spare and in the seat you always sit in so you can sign the attendance sheet). The Chelsea boots will make your feet look great, even as you're struggling to walk around campus with your head held high. An image Gif Source

If your professor doesn't let you use a computer in class:

Moleskine is a great way to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to taking notes. Sure you can use a five-star notebook like everyone else... but where's the fun in that. They even have limited edition collections including Snow White and Star Wars so you can keep up on your pop culture obsession without having to check the Internet every five minutes.

If you're tired of doing laundry:

Laundry is the f*cking worst. A way to combat that is to... just keep buying new clothes! At some point the solution doesn't exactly work but when you get 20% off at American Eagle Outfitters both in-store AND online, who cares about logic. After all, this isn't the American Eagle from your pre-teen years. American Eagle has had an amazing overhaul and their jeans are some of the best I've ever purchased. Plus they now have a Tailgate Collection that includes 49 different schools. SO if you're tired of whatever is available in your bookstore, you can go here and find something that's at least 50x cuter and far less overpriced than whatever you'll find on campus.

If you're traveling home a lot:

Traveling is the WORST (unless you're traveling somewhere for Spring Break... then it's the BEST). If you find yourself going home more and more you may eventually find yourself living out of a suitcase. Packing is always the worst part of traveling but eBags has packing cubes that take the guesswork out of getting your stuff to fit. Beyond this, they carry everything from luggage to wallets to backpacks (which is a good thing if you can't get your laptop and books to fit into your bag). An image Gif Source

Hopefully you're not TOO bummed that you have to go back. It can be both a blessing and a curse but in the end, it's better to be at college than high school. I hope you've enjoyed these sad Arrested Development gifs as they embody every emotion you may now be feeling.
