The summer has come to a close. O-Week is over. All that’s left is September and before you know it, leaves will be falling, sweaters will be broken out, and oh yeah, don’t forget about midterm season. You can keep reminiscing about that boy you met while studying abroad, or the kids you worked with during DukeEngage, or you can accept that all of that is left in the past and get back into the swing of things with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before GIFs.
When you realize that syllabus week is over and it’s time to actually start spending time in Perkins
But you’re still not quite in the mindset of school, and your professor gives a pop quiz week 2
New year new you though, so you start with every intention of studying… but end up in bed watching Netflix
When people ask you if you’re ready to be back at Duke you manage an affirmative
But honestly, them asking is a smack in the face reminder that summer is over
School isn’t all bad though. You’re finally reunited with your besties.
Which means it’s time to party!
But what to wear? All of your Shooters clothes are tucked away behind the business casual you’ve been rocking at your summer internship.
But eventually you make it and see a cute boy eyeing you from on top of the bar
Of course, you later find out he’s a freshman, and unlike in Lara Jean’s case, there’s no Peter Kavinsky to announce that nothing happened between you too.
So you do the only thing you can do: damage control
But hey, don’t limit yourself! If he gives you this look,
Or this one
Then freshman or not, he’s a keeper
At the end of the day, just like Lara Jean, you will make it through the emotional rollercoaster that is starting back to school!
Good luck Blue Devils!
