Slowly becoming sleep deprived/an insomniac day by day because of your newfound college lifestyle.

Eating dorm food for the first time. Then the second. Then the three-hundred millionth.

Or, getting into that party/bar for the first time and feeling like the gates of Heaven opened in that moment.

Following weeks of eating your weight in unhealthy food/drinking your weight in most likely alcoholic substances, you decide to combat the calories.

Freshman year isn't all a struggle, though. You met your absolute best friends and make some crazy memories with them... whether you quite remember them or not.

And kind of wonder how you got so lucky.

But then you have to leave your freshman year behind. And it kind of hits you like:

And driving away from campus will be driving away from everything you've known and loved for the past 9 months, and you will feel accordingly.

So to sum it all up, freshman year was one big, hilarious, wild and insane ride. And freshman year survivor, college and Marquette University grad, Chris Farley says it best:

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally.
