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.

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.
