7 Phases Of Family Visiting You In College

There is nothing quite like having family visit at your new home!

7 Phases Of Family Visiting You In College

With family visits and special weekends for parents to come see you, there is a range of emotions each person goes through. There is not quite anything else when family gets to visit and sees how and where you spend your days. You get to show them your home and share with them all your favorite places. Along with getting to catch up and appreciating their company. I look forward to family visiting every time and my only wish is that the visit could last longer. Heres the range of emotions I go through every time:

1. Super over excited feelings begin.

You probably spent all week just thinking about all the fun things you get to do with your family. This week took forever to get by!

You want to impress the family with where you live. You and your housemates/roommates will scrub everything till its sparkly! Your family can't know of the slobs you really are.

3. Tackling them with love.

There is nothing like a reunion with the people you love! Nothing beats a hug from your parents or other family members. You cannot contain your love once you see them.

4. Shopping!!

ONE OF THIS AND ONE OF THIS AND EVERYTHING ELSE! Grocery shopping and buying new clothes is exactly what you needed. Now you can stop eating quesadillas and wearing your worn out shoes for once!

5. Eating great food

Having your family down means taking them to all your favorite food places and keeping all the leftovers! Nothing beats that.

6. Showing them around

You may be in a shoebox apartment, tiny dorm, or old house but you are damn proud of it! Whatever it is, it always fun to show your fam around the new place you call home.

7. Not wanting to say bye

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F09%2F636116452088582193-752315446_6361164397814888122070707908_dont%2520leave.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=57&h=a4d6c56c2035c42ac9c0e7f178bc1701744075b7112625c054e568805a77af62&size=980x&c=2413937085 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F09%252F636116452088582193-752315446_6361164397814888122070707908_dont%252520leave.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D57%26h%3Da4d6c56c2035c42ac9c0e7f178bc1701744075b7112625c054e568805a77af62%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2413937085%22%7D" expand=1]

Once your family leaves then that means back to reality of school and stress and paying for everything on your own. Also means you won't see your family for a little bit. They leave but both you and them can't wait for the next time to see each other!

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
