Being home from college is great but the time goes by so slow. All semester long you count down the days until summer vacation. But the reality is that one or two weeks in to summer, you wish you were back at school. Seeing family is great and all but after a short time, you start to realize why you decided to go away for college anyway. Summer should be a time for relaxing not wishing you were back at school. So here is a list of things that college students miss while they are home for the summer.1. Freedom.
When you are home in the summer you have to check in with your parents pretty much 24/7. When you are at school you could go to Walmart or Tacobell at 2 am and have no one wondering where you are and having to be back at a certain time. At school you can have whoever you want over and they can stay for however long. At home you are limited to your family and the time that they can stay until.
2. Being within walking distance of your friends.
At school you are lucky to have friends next to you or somewhere in your hall. If you miss a friend, you could literally see them in 5 minutes or less. At home, most friends don't live in walking distance of your home, so it takes a little bit longer to see them.
3. Living with friends is better than siblings.
Yes you love your siblings, but living with them can be a lot at times. You tend to fight over stupid things and get annoyed really easily. Living with friends is always a fun time because living with someone you become closer than ever.
4. Having responsibilities.
At school yes you have some responsibilities to go to class, do laundry and what not. But at home you have help around the house with stupid chores. At school you can push things off until the end, but at home you have parents nagging you for everything.
5. Everything is in walking distance.
The gym, class, food, the library, and friends. At school you can wake up at 8:20am for an 8:30am class. At home if you have to be somewhere to be, you have to leave at least 20-30 minutes before you need to be there. Food is always the closest. At home if you want any kind of food, you need to drive a bit.
