Why You Should Go Away This Summer

It is our college years and no other time in our lives will we have three months to do whatever we want. If money is a factor, take out a loan and deal with it later. You will regret it if you don't go and forever resent those that did. If it wasn't obvious enough already, here is why you should go away this summer.

1) No matter how hot Ireland get's it will never be as hot as Spain, Thailand or the US.

2) These are the summers we can travel and do what we want for three months

3) If you stay at home you will have to work full time in a job you have been doing for 4 years


4) You might find yourself babysitting all summer

5) Spending every single day with your family

6) Spending every day with your siblings


7) The rain

8) Not meeting new people

9) Going to the same clubs you have been going to for 5 years now


10) No holiday romance

11) No tan

12) Expensive alcohol


13) No fun things to do sober

14) How many walks on the pier can one human possibly do?

15) Staying in the same place for the WHOLE summer


16) A lot of money spent on petrol

17) Dublin Bus will be your best friend

18) "What happens in...." does not apply here. Everyone knows everything.


19) You will see your ex constantly

20) You will spend the whole summer jealous of anyone that is away

21) The holiday check-in's on Facebook will make you cry
