With Winter Break coming to a close, there are plenty of emotions going around. Whether you're traveling back to university by car or by plane, here are the stages of leaving your cozy home for the Spring semester:

1. Eagerness

I cannot wait to see my friends! No more curfew. No more parental rules. Back to my social scene!

2. Anxiety

But the schoolwork... did I overload myself this semester? Am I going to fail Brit Lit because I chose the afternoon time instead of the easy professor? Oh god I am not looking forward to midterms already.

3. Excitement

I was so bored at home. Now back to always having something to do! Always having people to hang with!

4. Distress

But who is going to do my laundry?! Home cooked meals?!

5. Longing

I'm going to miss my family... my friends... MY PET.

6. Happiness
