3. In the Real World, "Summer Vacation" Has Been Replaced by "Wedding Season"

Ah, summer. I spent the past 20 summers of my life enjoying the outdoors, the beach, nights out with my friends, no school, no responsibility, and the occasional drinking till 3 am with my best friends. It was great.

This post isn't meant to lament the fact that I no longer have 3 months off in the summer. I was expecting that part, so I'm okay with it. What I didn't expect was that everyone and their fucking mom is getting married in the summer. Everywhere you turn, there is another wedding. My sister's wedding, my best friend's wedding, my best friend's second cousin's mother-in-law's second wedding, my co-worker's vow renewal ceremony. I mean really: summer is wedding season.

This probably seems like common knowledge to the average 30-year-old. Well, it was news to me. In the real world, it seems everyone is getting married all the time and everyone else is all excited about it. Especially in the summer, no one will shut up about all the weddings they're going to all the time. And there is an increasingly high number of Facebook profile pictures that involved girls in wedding dresses or bridesmaids dresses.

No one ever told me the real world was so wedding-obsessed.
