Home Is A Place You Grow Up Wanting To Leave And Grow Old Wanting To Come Back

As if all the food and the bed weren’t great reasons to miss home

Home Is A Place You Grow Up Wanting To Leave And Grow Old Wanting To Come Back

When I come home, I’m always amazed at how much I missed it. I love college, don’t get me wrong, I think college is great. Being away from home I have seen things that I didn’t realize happened.

First of all, my home bed is amazing. Bigger than my dorm bed and more familiar, making it all that much better than the dorm mattress offered to me. I have all my favorite blankets and pillows on my home bed.

Second, I’m not eating dining hall food at home. My parents make me food that I like. I love the food my parents make me! And they’re so good to me! If I want pancakes and I ask nicely, either my mom or dad will make pancakes for me. (Thanks Mom and Dad!) If I want pancakes at school, well I’m out of luck.

As if all the food and the bed weren’t great reasons to miss home, my pets are at home. Waiting for me to come back, always excited to see me! When I come home, I’m greeted by so many animals. My two puppies, who are arguably not puppies as they as both over three years old and 130 pounds, always run to see me when I come back. My three cats actually come and weave through my legs, even though when I lived full time at home the cats usually regarded me with disinterest.

Being home is amazing. I love being home, I almost don’t want go back to school, but I know I have to. I know I’ll love being back at school, but I love home and I’m glad I got to spend a week at home.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
