As my first year at Radford University comes to a close, I realize I am going to truly miss this place over the next few months. But, there are a few things at home I have been missing that I'm even more excited to do in the next coming months.
1. Sleeping in my own bed.
Look, I know I complain about this a lot. But nothing can truly ever feel like YOUR bed except YOUR bed. I have a five-inch mattress pad and a mountain of blankets but it doesn't hold a candle to my bed at home. I just really miss my bed okay!
2. Eating food that's not on campus.
I love Chick-fil-a and Wendys as much as the next person, but when you only have so many options, it truly starts to feel repetitive. I love real food. I need real food. I want options! Is that so much to ask for?
3. Go to museums.
I love museums. I could get lost in one every day if I could. Being so close to DC, I can just metro or drive in and go to a bunch of free ones all day long. Unfortunately, Radford does not have a huge supply of free museums so I will definitely spend time doing this all summer to get my fill.
4. Getting to hang out with friends without being stressed.
With finals, that gut feeling whenever you're hanging out instead of studying is actually the worst. With finals done and over with, you're now free to do whatever you want in your spare time. Why? Because friendship IS magic.
5. Cook in my own kitchen.
Have you ever cooked in a dorm? It sucks. While my dorm building did have a kitchen on every floor, the idea of communal kitchens really throws me off for some reason. I helped design my families kitchen so I love using it. When I'm home, I don't have any excuse not to cook!
These are just a few things I'm going to do this summer, what are your plans?
