The 6 Most Exciting Things of Coming Home for Winter Break
Allie Beinhacker

Despite an amazing first semester, it is always nice to come home for a little break, especially when the past two weeks have been dedicated to studying (or more accurately, cramming) for all the work that finals week brings. At the very least, there are some positives to help get us through the final few days before we can return home.

1. Finals are over.

Weeks and weeks of studying and at this point who ever cares how you did?! At least you're done!

2. You get to see your home friends for longer than a week.

Although Thanksgiving break was nice, it's just not enough time spent with your best friends that you grew up with. A month to hang out with your home friends is just what you need after finals week.

3. Real food.

As much fun as school is, the one this that it is truly missing is a decent meal. Dining hall was great for about the first week but there's nothing like coming home to home cooked meals and your favorite restaurants.

4. No more public bathrooms.

There's no way to sugar coat it-- public bathrooms are potentially the most inconvenient thing besides walking 15 minutes to each class. Shower shoes, waiting for someone to finish using a toilet, coming back at night to vomit all over the mirrors... not ideal.

5. The holidays.

No explanation needed. The holidays are the best time of year whether you're coming home from a break or not.

6. A month dedicated to doing nothing.

As nice as it is to stay busy, a nice break for the holidays dedicating to doing nothing is too much of a tempting offer to turn down. So keep on your pajamas, stay in bed all day, and binge watch Netflix while you can.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

165

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
