21 Thoughts We All Have During This Awkward Not Quite Summer, Not Quite Fall Season


  1. Do I wear flip flops? Or riding boots? Or snow boots?
  2. Whatever I go with, it better not be fucking white.
  3. It’s not cold, but I still want to be drinking hot pumpkin-flavored drinks, because fall.
  4. I want to bring jacket just in case it gets chilly, but then I’ll have to hold it all night when I’m too hot to function.
  5. Or I could not bring one and run the risk is freezing my balls off?
  6. Maybe like, a vest? In case there’s a very narrow cold front?
  7. These fraternities need to work on their themes. How am I supposed to go to “Scarecrows and Country Hoes” when it’s too hot to wear a flannel?
  8. Should I feel uncomfortable that I’m wearing a scarf in the same vicinity as a girl who’s wearing sandals?
  9. I really want to wear a jean shirt, but it’s like 90 degrees, so.
  10. Why the hell is my electricity bill so high?
  11. Oh, because I’ve been alternating between the AC and the heat like a fucking maniac.
  12. When is it too soon to bring out my sweaters?
  13. Why isn’t there an official rulebook for this shit?!
  14. The only jacket that works for this weather is my raincoat, but it’s not fucking raining.
  15. Why am I getting invites to pool parties?
  16. Shouldn’t we be doing, like, bonfires or something?
  17. It should be illegal for the weather to be hot enough for me to be sweating at a pumpkin patch.
  18. Is it normal for me to walk to my 8 a.m. class in a hoodie, and leave my noon class in a tank top and shorts?
  19. Saying goodbye to all my floral prints for the next eight months is going to be a truly traumatic experience.
  20. But saying hello to all my booties makes the whole ordeal a little bit easier.
  21. If it’s too cold to wear sundresses to tailgates, what’s the point of even going?
