Ah yes, summer is actually coming to an end for a majority of college students including me. I still remember when I finished school in May. I had crazy awesome plans for the whole summer until reality hit and I'm sure a similar things happened to you as well.

In the end, I actually ended up doing basically shit all this summer and I'm sure some of you can relate. I mean like I didn't have a shit summer but I didn't do even half the things I planned on doing. I mean I basically made a summer bucket list and I can honestly say that half those ideas and plans went in the trash along with this shitty weather.

I wanted to party hard but in reality...

I really didn't. I mean ya I went out a lot but I either worked super early, I was completely broke, the weather was shitty, or the plans were too last minute for reservations. I did party pretty hard at least 5 times this summer but common... you never want the party to stop!

I wanted to go on road trips but in reality...

I only went on one. It was still super fun going to visit the waterfalls in Sainte-Adele, but I wanted to go on so many more especially with all the cool things discovered near Montreal this summer. I really wanted to go on a road trip with all my girls but once again we were either broke, didn't drive, didn't have our parents car, or some of us worked.

I wanted to explore but in reality...

I didn't explore nature but I did explore the city. I wanted to go and explore the grotto and caves near Montreal but I didn't. Instead I got to explore the city which was actually pretty cool.

I wanted to go camping but in reality...

I camped in my boyfriends backyard instead. I wanted to go camping but instead me and my boyfriend made a fire and roasted marshmallows instead which was just as great actually. Camping was too hard to plan with work and everything yet again.

I wanted to tan all the time but in reality...

I worked all the time and when I didn't work the weather was shitty. like honestly can you not rain on my parade?

I wanted to watch the sunrise but in reality...

I was too damn tired from always working! And when I wasn't working I was sleeping!

I wanted to buy nice shit but in reality...

I was somehow broke even though I worked a shit ton... Like idk how that even makes any sense? Like let's be honest I know i spend a lot of my money on food but common girls we all know that we buy useless shit sometimes.

I wanted to go to Tremblant for the weekend but in reality...

I went to the Spa instead. The spa was still super nice and I had a great time with my BF but Tremblant was just too far and too expensive plus the whole taking off work thing never works.

I wanted to workout a shit ton but in reality...

I was a lazy fck this summer. Due to all the work I was doing to make money for "fun" activities and school I was EXHAUSTED! I still worked out but not to my full potential.

I wanted to go to a bunch of terrases but in reality...

It was always raining when I wanted to go r I was broke or everyone was working. The reality is that once all your friends get jobs it makes it that much more impossible to make plans with all your girls.

I wanted to all the music festivals but in reality...

I only went to Ile Soniq. Ile Soniq was so amazing but I couldn't afford going to all the music festivals like Osheaga and Veld or what not.

I wanted to every Piknic Electronik but in reality...

Sunday's became sleeping days and then work days. I went to about 3 Piknics which were totally fun but but I couldn't possibly go to them all! I mean I didn;t even buy a season pass.

I wanted to rent and Airbnb but in reality...

It was too complicated and too last minute with all my friends. I mean we all know how it is at 18 trying to gather money from all your friends to have a chill weekend at a cottage... IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

I wanted to try all the great restaurants but in reality...

I didn't want to gain weight or spend all that cash. I did go to a few restaurants which were superb in Montreal but I still wan to try them all!

I wanted to try a bunch of Spas but in reality...

I only tried one and once was enough actually. I had an amazing experience at the Spa I went to but you can only do so many spas in a short period of time. And they aren't exactly free either.

I wanted to go to a boozy brunch but in reality...

I was hungover from the night before. I was usually still drunk by the time I woke up so a boozy brunch was out of the question. I probably slept through most of them anyways or spent all my pay already.

Overall, I wanted to have a crazy fcken summer but in reality...

I DID SHIT ALL!
