Summer Expectations Vs. Reality In GIFs

Every year when summer came around, I always had these crazy expectations for what the summer would be like. I’d hang out with my friends all day every day by the pool or go on an awesome beach trip. I’d have no responsibilities, and I’d have an exciting summer fling.

But expectations for summer rarely end up being the reality. I always ended up working all summer and being bogged down by summer reading. I totally enjoyed my summers, but I feel like they just never were what they could have been, you know?
