10 Thoughts College Kids Have During Winter Break

"What day is it? Thursday... Saturday ... January?"

10 Thoughts College Kids Have During Winter Break

A glimpse into the average college kid's thought process while home for winter break:

1. "Man, I really missed my family and friends from home."

No matter how much you love college, you can't deny the amazing feeling of being home with your family and high school friends.

2. "I should really start going to bed earlier..."

About a week into break, you probably realized that your sleep schedule was horribly messed up, but you also probably were too lazy to fix it.

3. "How many episodes of The Office can I get through today?"

Whether you chose to watch The Office or something a little more dramatic like Grey's Anatomy, I guarantee you found yourself thinking this same thing and succeeded in watching about 2 seasons per day.

4. "I guess I should go to the gym today..."

Or tomorrow, or the next day, and so on.... Let's face it, your goal of going to the gym everyday over break has probably turned into a goal of making it there at least once.

5. "Even though it's 2:30pm and I just woke up, I can't miss a meal, so cereal and a hoagie it is then!"

You wouldn't dare miss a meal at home. Each meal you eat at home brings you one step closer to going back to dining hall food, so you should enjoy food at home as much as you can.

6. "What day is it? Thursday... Saturday ... January?"

Christmas and New Years serve as great checkpoints to know what day it is... after that, Sunday might as well be Wednesday.

7. "What'll happen if I don't go back and stay home with my dog forever."

Or you could try and smuggle him/her back to school... your RA would never know!

8."Maybe I'll put pants on today and participate in society... nah, tomorrow sounds good."

If you haven't left your bed in 4 days, you're doing winter break correctly.

9. "Wow, I really miss my school friends."

Thank goodness iMessage and Facetime exist!

10. "I can't wait to go back."

Although life at home is pretty great, the end of break finds you severely missing your tiny dorm room, college friends, and the overall freedom of living on your own.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
