Thread: Who thinks the summer is to short?

    Default Who thinks the summer is to short?

    The college people might not think this but as someone still in high school who thinks that the summers are to short?

    I do. I think that we just get out of school and then we go back. Summers are 2 mounts long or so once you make up make up days.

    This is just on my mind as school is fast approaching. I love the social part of school, but man I love my summers of sleeping in until noon while going to sleep at 3 in the morning. Life just doesn't get any simplier than that.

    It's plenty long for me. I am a college student; finals ended May 7. That's a long *** time. Plus, I got a job at the end of June, which reminds you how luck you are to be in school to become a professional. Mix in the hell that is NBA offseason, and no, summer is quite long enough. I'm glad Fall is around the corner.

    As a working professional that's had chargeability > 110% this summer ("slow time", my ***), I can vouch that *this* summer was way, way, way too short.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    My summer was actually pretty long this time, almost three months. It got extended by a few weeks, I think.

    I think I'm going to really like this year. My schedule is still pretty hectic, but there are at least more classes where I'm up and about the school, instead of listening to the teacher drone.

    Summer is entirely too short. I've been out of college for about 4 months and I never want to return! But I do on the 29th.

    For those of you who love college, get a full-time job and try to plan a wedding and see how much you love college.

    I can't wait till a professor tries to encourage me to go to graduate school. I'll roll on the floor laughing.

    Wait until you start teaching. Then your answer will be "HELL YES, SUMMER'S TOO SHORT!"


    IMO, summer is too freakin' short. School either needs to end earlier - before Memorial day - or start later.

    I don't think so. I don't mind school, plus it's my senior year, so I'm really looking forward to it.

    Summer's hot. I miss Wisconsin. Summer's too long. Now FALL - that's always too short.
