Summer Of A College Student

You have survived another year. Finals week is over, the stress of classes has been lifted off your shoulders, all that is left is to pack up your dorm and head home for summer. Here are some thoughts you’ll probably have.

When you arrive home and have to make it known to everyone that you are back.

You can’t wait to see your family again and catch up with what’s going on in their lives and share with them all the exciting things you’ve done while you away at college.You'll never admit it to them that you missed them, but let's be honest you did and are excited to spend the summer with them. At first it will be a little weird because you've been gone awhile but you'll adjust back quickly, just like you never left.


You’ll realize how much you missed your mom’s cooking


You won’t be able to get enough before you have to leave it to go back the university's cafeteria food or late night taco bell runs. You'll probably gain an extra 10 pounds from your mom fattening you up this summer.

You won't want to leave your own bed every again.

You will probably spend half your summer here catching up on sleep from all those all-nighters.

Get as much sleep while you can, because you know when classes start you won't be getting any.

Seeing your old friends in the grocery store will make you remember old times.

You’ll probably ask them what’s new in their life and how their college life was like. You'll make plans to hang out this summer like you guys used to, and take over the town once again. You'll show those high school kids, that thought they did while you were gone, that you're back and was here first.

Realizing you have no money and have to start looking for a summer job.

You might want to start saving up money for when you back to college. You’ll probably be able to bum money off your parents for a while but eventually they'll tell you to get a job. Try getting an outside job so you can still enjoy the sun and work on your tan, like a lifeguard at the local pool.

Seeing your ex around town.

Oh yes you probably forgot about him coming home. If you ant to make him jealous start talking about your amazing new boyfriend at college or you can get the dark sunglasses and hood ready or find the nearest bush. If you're lucky he might not even remember you, but you probably won't be. Good luck.

When you start missing your friends at college

Your late night food runs, study sessions, and movie nights. You would do anything to be back with you main girls right now. Don't worry you don't have much longer to go till you see them again.

Then summer finally comes to a close and you couldn’t be happier to back in your college town and take on another year.

Finally you're reunited with your friends and you're ready to take on another year of all-nighters, taco bell runs, and dreaded classes. At least until summer when you head back to your hometown once again.

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.
