You go back to college and you miss your family and friends, you go back home and you miss your college friends. There really is no winning here. Being home for the holidays is all about spending time with family and catching up with your friends from home. You love being home because you've missed it and everyone there, but being back home also means being away from your college friends whom you've grown pretty attached to over these last couple of years.
1. You miss binge watching Netflix with them
Yeah you still binge watch Netflix at home, but who's going to fill you in on everything you missed out on?
2. You tag each other in everything
You can't just lean over and show them the meme or video that made you laugh, so instead you tag them in it and hope they find it as funny as you do and wait for a reply or text telling you how much they appreciated it.
3. Being at each others houses 24/7
When you're back in you're hometown sometimes it's hard to remember there are rules to follow in your parents home and in your friends parent's homes. You miss college, where you could just be as loud as you want in the middle of the night at your friends house while eating food you know you shouldn't.
4. College town gossip
Just like your college friends can't talk to you about your hometown gossip, your hometown friends can't talk with you about your college town gossip. It's all very frustrating.
5. You miss their jokes
It's funny how both sets of your friends have different types of humor, and even though they might not know it, you really do miss their jokes and the weird things they would say.
While being away from your college friends, you learn to appreciate them a little more. You're always talking about how you miss home, your friends, and family that you never stop and realize that you now have another set of friends and family. Even though we miss our friends from college, just remember you'll be reunited in a month. So, savor your time with your friends from home and your family because you have all next semester back in your college town!
