Although being away at college can be fun, it definitely makes you realize how much you appreciate home. Not feeling suffocated in a tiny dorm room is always a good thing, and having your mom around to help out with things definitely has its benefits.

Here are 10 of the best parts of moving back home during the summer!

1. Cooking

You forget how nice it is to have home cooked meals from your house, and not eating out or going to a dining hall since you were too lazy to make something yourself.

2. Laundry

Not having to deal with dirty clothes and folding laundry for a couple months is the best. Fighting for the dorm washers and dryers was a definite struggle, and I ALWAYS forgot to leave a timer for my laundry.

3. Pets

Being surrounded by your best friends ALL summer is the best!!

4. Extra cash

Finally having time to get a part-time job and get some extra cash to spend on food, food, and more food > > >

5. No alarms

Not having to wake up at 7:45 for your daily 8 a.m. class is the absolute best.

6. Netflix

Despite the excessive amount of time I spend binge-watching Netflix during the school year, now I have even MORE time to re-watch The Office for the 1000th time!

7. Showers

You truly forget how nice it is not having to wear flip-flops in the shower and avoid massive balls of hair.

8. Your own room

As much as you have loved your roommate, nothing beats coming back to your own room and not being blinded by light when your roommate gets up for an early class.

9. Your mom

Going away to college makes you realize how much you need your mom’s help for every minor inconvenience that occurs in your life. Having her around for a few months is actually the best.

10. You love where you live

At least for me, going away to college made me realize how much I love where I live! Coming back home for a few months to your hometown makes you truly appreciate where you came from.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.


2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.


4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.
