Ah, college. A time to burst out of our comfort zones and create lifelong relationships with people we only know by stalking their Facebooks. It's a time to have a fresh start, meet new people, become independent, and eventually learn who our real friends are. College forces us to lose touch with old friends from home and realize that we low-key never even liked some of them. But, true friendship stands the test of time—and in this case—distance. Our first thoughts about college are how we're going to make new friends, and once we do, we tend to get caught up in all the fun and forget about home.

...that is, until we're studying in the library at 2:00 a.m. and we begin to incredibly miss our hometown. We long for our bed, our family, and most importantly, our best friends. The ones that we have known for years and can be our complete selves around. There is nothing that even can compare to the overwhelming urge to talk to and be with our best friends from home. We tend to carry little pieces of all our friends with us wherever we go. So here are the 20 stages all college students go through when missing old BFFs, as explained by the Kardashians.

1. At first, we don’t even have time to think of our home friends—let alone miss them.

2. Maybe it's because we're too busy going out and having fun with our new college friends.

3. So we're gramming and snapping away each moment.

4. But of course, the roles reverse and we see our best friends posting Instagrams with their "best friends," a.k.a. people we have never even seen before?!?

5. On top of that, college begins to eat us alive and all the studying becomes overwhelming...

6. and we know the only thing that will make us feel better is venting to our best friends.

7. So we call them and start catching up on our lives...

8. ...and begin sharing all our wild college stories.

9. Then eventually it hits us how much we truly miss our home friends.

10. All it took was one Facetime call to remind us how much fun our old BFFs are, so video-chatting becomes a nightly routine...

12. ....and all our group chats are revived and lit again.

13. Despite loving college, there is something so comforting about talking to our best friends at home.

14. Probably because they know us better than anyone else...

15. ...and talking to them makes us feel like we're 15 years old with no responsibilities all over again.

16. We begin wishing we can just drive to their homes and sit on their couches, but then comes the heartbreaking realization that we're miles apart.

17. We then have to face the fact that the only times we will all be together again are only on breaks.

18. So all we are left to do is start counting down the days 'til we're reunited.

19. And we all know how that first day of being home will go down.

20. Because they are our best friends, and ain't nobody fresher than my mother f*ckin' clique.

P.S. I would like to dedicate this article to my home squad: Casey, Katlyn, Katie, Kimmy, Manny, Maria, Marisa, Nick, Nicky, Noelle, Robert, and Sheena. Although half of our messages in the GroupMe are "like gram pls," I'm glad we are still close enough to constantly roast each other. I love you all :)

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
