After living basically alone this past summer, I have relied on my family more than ever. I came home about every other weekend just to hang out with my parents and see my dogs. To relax and get away from the stress of school. Worked like a charm.
Nothing meant more to me when my Mom came up for the weekend, going shopping, and just chilling on the couch watching movies. A couple weeks later, my Dad came up just for the night, we went out to dinner, and then I dropped him off at his car the next morning before class. Just a simple 24hours changed my whole mood for the rest of the week.
Although I was focused on my studies basically 24/7, I was constantly bored. Coming home and seeing my parents made a world of a difference. They knew I was having a rough time living alone, not having the typical summer I have grown up to have. They tried their hardest though to make it easier on me as possible.
More importantly, I couldn't thank them enough for coming up to Tallahassee this past weekend to help me move apartments. Even though it was a lot of work, we did have a lot of time doing it. My parents do so much for me, and I hope that I make them proud in all that I do, but I want them to know how much I appreciate them.
My summer break consists of basically five days, and there is nothing else I would want to do than spend time with them. I can see my friends at any time, but my parents, not so much. It means more to me than they will ever know, and I love just hanging at the house catching up about how our day was.
To my Mom and Dad, thank you for all that you do. I know I ask for a lot, and that I can be a lot to handle, but I hope that in the long run, it was all worth it. I love you guys more than you know!
