18 Thoughts Every College Student Has After Moving Home For Summer

Life just isn't the same when your friends aren't down the hall.

18 Thoughts Every College Student Has After Moving Home For Summer

Summer used to be the be-all and end-all of the school year. It was the ultimate goal, the best thing to have looming on the horizon. Until college came around, that is. After living away from home, returning to the same rules you had to abide by in high school is less than desirable. Getting together with friends is a lot harder than when you could just walk down the hall to another dorm room, and while you can catch up on your sleep and eat some pretty good homemade food, your social life has never been drier. Whether you're still hype for summer or wish you could rewind to the beginning of the school year, here are some thoughts every college student has after moving home for summer vacation.

1. No shower shoes

2. Free laundry

Look at all that extra money you have to blow.

3. A whole refrigerator… Full of REAL food… Steps away from my bed...

Walking downstairs to the fridge and back counts as cardio, right?

4. *Walks down hall* Sh*t, where are all of my friends?

5. Why doesn’t my house have a Starbucks?

You mean I can't start every day with a caramel macchiato?

6. Why can’t I use dining dollars when I go out to eat?

7. *Hears car alarm go off outside* FIRE ALARM, GOTTA GO!

8. Private bathrooms for the win.

Your shower is basically the same thing as the stage on "The Voice

9. Going to bed wasn’t this scary when I had a roommate...

You didn't realize you were afraid of the dark until you had no one to brave it with.

10. I can stay in my pajamas all day.

11. Where am I supposed to put all of my clothes from college? Why do I own this many clothes?

12. Why won’t my parents stop telling me what to do? I clearly survived living on my own.

I left one plate in the sink. The roof is not caving in.

13. Turns out I can’t talk to my parents like they’re my college friends...

"Define 'lit.'" No, thank you!

14. How do I drive a car again?

Which pedal is the brake?

15. It’s finally quiet.

16. …Too quiet.

The silence is too loud.

17. *Watches TV for five minutes* OK, I'm bored.

You can only watch so many episodes of "Cupcake Wars" before you desire some human interaction.

18. Where’s the party at?

Relaxing is overrated. Where are the tunes and good times?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
