13 Things They Don't Tell You About Moving Home For The Summer

Several college students are moving home, and we all have a vision on what summer vacation should look like. During finals week we fantasize about sitting on the side of the beach with our friends and having the best summer ever. However, when you move back home things take a different turn. Here are 13 things people don't tell you about moving home.

When you arrive home, unpacking is the worst, and you probably won't do a whole lot of it. 

You quickly start looking for a summer job, to make some money over the summer. 

However, you realize that all the good jobs, that don't need a degree, are taken by kids in high school. 

So, you take a job babysitting, lifeguarding, or if you are lucky you actually find a nice job that will hire you for the summer. 

You now work 40 hours in a week, so when you go back to school you aren't completely poor. 

You don't see your hometown friends as much because they are either, working or staying in their college town. 

You miss your friends from college everyday, and wish you could see them. 

You realize the freshman 15 was very real, and try to diet and exercise. 

You quickly realize that you aren't going to have time to be in a bathing suit this summer anyways so why try to get in shape?

Taking one summer class sounded like a great idea, but when it begins you are reminded how much you hate classes. 

But it also makes you realize how much you miss campus. 

You start to pack everything back up again (even though you never unpacked in the first place). 

Arriving back on campus is the best feeling in the world.

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.

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.
