10 One-Liners College Friends Exchange When Sent Home Due To A Natural Disaster

10 One-Liners College Friends Exchange When Sent Home Due To A Natural Disaster

We had to go home for some Hurricane.

Recently my college town took a long week intermission due to Hurricane Irma sending most of our student body to all different states.

Evacuating from your college is top 5 most inconvenient and scary things you will ever have to do, mark my words.

Having a hurricane come barreling through you state is defiantly not all fun and games though. Hurricane Irma left people homeless, distraught and some still are without power.Luckily the city of Tampa was able to keep standing tall and I am forever grateful to have a school to go back to whereas some do not. But it also brought on spontaneous trips that you might have never made if it weren't for this, or even brought you home to loved ones.

For my friend group and I, we ended up completely separated, some of us home and some of us in other states sleeping in hotels night after night. And if you've ever had to go home and be separated from your college friends you know it is not easy.

Here are the 10 ridiculous things my friends and I said to each other while being home due to Hurricane Irma:

1. "I'm Bored"

When you are home from college you are literally alone, all your friends from home are at their college so you have no friends, most likely no car, and your parents are at work. Being home from college actually is top 5 worst things to happen to a college student. (dramatic!!!)

2. "Hey miss you"

Your college-friend group chat is blowing up your phone all hours of the day simply because you all miss each other so much.

3. "FaceTime me!"

Being with your college friends every single waking minute does not prepare you for random week long separations from them. We all literally Face timed each other multiple times per day.

4. "I can't wait until were back at school"

You find yourself saying this every 5 minutes, because when you're away you truly realize how much you love your life at school way more than being home..

5. "I hope we can even go back to school"

There is always that person in the group chat that overestimates the natural disaster....

6. "My mom is being so annoying, ugh."

We are not handling having parents again well thats for sure.

7. "Ive been on hold with JetBlue for an hour now."

Going home for a natural disaster means trying to get back as soon as possible.

8. "We are getting trashed when we get back."

You better believe we are getting off a plane and going straight to happy hour.

9. "Want to get chipotle when we get back?"

Clearly we have our priorities in line.

10. "If my professor thinks I'm doing this assignment he's insane."

We just evacuated because of a hurricane, so no I will not be handing in that paper on time.

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.


When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.
