10 Reasons Why We're Excited For Thanksgiving Break

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we're both saddened about leaving school yet excited for our favorite parts of coming home. Make sure to enjoy the shoeless showers, the home cooked meals, your best friends, and the greatest parts about going home.

1. Showering without shoes.

Above everything else, this is the most exciting part of coming home. No inconvenience of wearing shoes in the shower and no hateful agony of forgetting to put them on.

2. Home cooked meals.

While by this point we've learned the ins and outs of every dining hall and restaurant, nothing replaces mom's cooking, especially her Thanksgiving meal.

3. Your own bed.

While you've grown to love your one at school, I'll take my comfy queen size bed over my twin with a mattress pad any day.

4. Reuniting with your home friends.

Nothing is quite as good as seeing your best friends of ten plus years for the first time in a long time.

5. Seeing your family.

No matter how annoyed you may get with them from time to time, it feels good to be back home with the ones that love you most.

6. Your pet.

While I don't personally have one, I must consider the majority of students who leave the furry little friends behind. Don't worry, they'll be back soon with more kisses than you can imagine.

7. Driving

Although some of the privilege of their car being at school, I can't wait to get behind the wheel again.

8. No midterms.

From time to time, school will kick your ass. Especially when it feels like you have midterms every day. Being home = no midterms.

9. Going back to all your favorite places.

Millburn Deli, Seymour's, Donut Basket, Magic Fountain: I miss you. I'll be back soon.

10. Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

The feeling of complete desperation to get back to your beloved school and a subtle reminder that it's where you belong.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
