The Stages Of Being The First Friend Home

No more homework? Awesome. Friends aren't home yet? Yikes.

The Stages Of Being The First Friend Home

By the end of the spring semester we're all itching to get out of school and go back home. No more work, just play. If you're that lucky friend that gets to go home earlier than everyone else you get bragging rights. Yet, once you are home it's not all fun and games because no one else is home to hang with you.

1. Excitement

Finally you're back in your own bed, driving your own car, eating at all the local joints. The idea of a summer full of opportunities is increasing your excitement for the memories to be made.

2. Boredom

You moved all your things back in and you are back to work, but during your free time there is nothing to do. Homework? Nope. You finished all that. Nap? You've already taken two. TV? All that's on during this hour is Dora the Explorer and Yo Gabba Gabba! Hard pass. Hang out with a friend or two? They're still taking exams.

4. Sadness

You're in bed by 9:30! Who even does that? Usually you'd be out and about with your best friend, but she's currently at a house party back at school. She said she'll facetime you when she gets back to her dorm, but then you'll just be reminded of all the fun you could have been having at school... If you weren't done so damn early. Which brings us to #5...

5. Regret

You regret moving your last test up a few days because all your school friends are still at school too, so you could've just spent the weekend with them before your next test. Total rookie move...

6. Bartering

At this point you're so bored without the squad that you will do just about anything to get them home. Even make deals with the devil, I'm kidding ... sort of. A different type of bartering you should think of doing is sucking up to your parents while your friends are away. That way when they come home your parents will be happy to let you go out whenever you want.

7. Happiness

Your friends are finally coming home!!! Just two more sleeps. It's time for the summer filled with wild memories to begin! Happy Summer!

Remember The True Meaning of Christmas

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
