But after all the complaining, you come to realize how productive and honestly amazing this summer has been. You become so close with your new roommates for the summer and have time to explore your college city that you never actually explored during the year. You live for the late night talks and movie nights, random dance parties in the kitchen and living room, henna nights with your friends, and learning more about each other than you could have if you went home. You finally learn how to actually cook something for yourself. You actually appreciate how much you have learned in class this summer! Thank you, Dr. Bing, for being such an amazing teacher. It's true you have those days where you miss home and all you want to do is to take a vacation abroad, but at least you are almost done with classes now and have less of a burden during the following semesters. To everyone taking classes over the summer: push through it! We're almost done!
