11 Reasons Why Coming Home For The Weekend Is the Best
Carney Team

Being a freshman in college and living in a new area is an “experience.” Yeah, the independence and not living with parents might sound enthralling, but there is something about coming home for the weekend. It is like a reset button from your college life, sometimes school gets hectic and too much goes on. Honestly, going back home is a mini vacation.

1. Home Cooked Meals

There is nothing like eating my mom’s fresh home-cooked meals.

2. Jumping Into My Bed

The first thing I do when I come home is nap in my bed – my cozy queen-sized bed.

3. Car Feels

Unfortunately, I don’t have my car on campus, so reuniting with my car and driving around town is reminiscent.

4. Free Laundry

The feeling you get when you don't have to worry about losing your clothes or having loose change.

5. Unconditional Love

It feels good to have simple conversations with my parents and funny arguments with my sister.

6. Family Friends

There is always a difference between school friends and family friends. My family friends just understand me in a different way.

7. Clean Everything

Clean room, clean bathroom, and clean kitchen equals love.

8. Pet Love

Is there anything better than your dog running and jumping towards you right when you get home?

9. Reuniting With Clothes

Wearing all the clothes I forgot to take to college.

10. Sleeping In

I don’t have to worry about going to class.

11. Local Restaurants

Eating at my favorite spots I used to go to when I was in high school.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
