Home feels too comfortable after six weeks.

10 Things I Will Miss From Home

Winter break is finally over and it is time to head back to the U and start winter term classes. As stoked as I am to be heading back to my friends and rule-free life, I am going to miss a few things about home.

1. My Dog

My dog is my favorite companion and I love her very much. It is always very hard to leave my bud but it is always so exciting to see how amped she gets when I return.

2. My bed

At home I have a big full bed and it feels monstrous compared to my squeaky twin at school. I will definitely miss by cloud/bed at school.

3. My parents

My mom and dad are pretty cool and are usually pretty nice to me when I am home. So they make this list.

4. Sleeping late

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F01%2F63618911125933181353138050_bed.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=134&h=8a66a6f045cfdd033a5a60b33316444fc8f8155c3ac3d8d4ddae6f2accc7e150&size=980x&c=3485106989 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F01%252F63618911125933181353138050_bed.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D134%26h%3D8a66a6f045cfdd033a5a60b33316444fc8f8155c3ac3d8d4ddae6f2accc7e150%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3485106989%22%7D" expand=1]

My winter schedule isn't too bad, but I have a lot more responsibilities and will have to eventually get up. My days of sleeping all day are unfortunately over.

5. My home friends

It is always great to come home and catch up with your home friends. I will miss our goofy antics but summer is six months away!

6. My shower

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F01%2F636189119784083604-595121048_shower.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=638&h=977a62ca4dea572d28f8d18b549010bd7256df6d967d1302c8c8d0983ad66515&size=980x&c=2579866391 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F01%252F636189119784083604-595121048_shower.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D638%26h%3D977a62ca4dea572d28f8d18b549010bd7256df6d967d1302c8c8d0983ad66515%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2579866391%22%7D" expand=1]

My shower at home doesn't even compare to my shower at school. Also wearing shower shoes sucks.

7. My car

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F02%2F636189122218521190545411236_driving.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=51&h=19ee0411a81de003d434a45b7576d7d9351a90b34ebc20fe04ace0eab076b3e0&size=980x&c=2445817692 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F02%252F636189122218521190545411236_driving.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D51%26h%3D19ee0411a81de003d434a45b7576d7d9351a90b34ebc20fe04ace0eab076b3e0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2445817692%22%7D" expand=1]

Unfortunately my sister is the temporary owner of our shared Tahoe while I am at school. I will miss cruising around my town.

8. Homemade food

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F02%2F636189122896093518-1042802371_food.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=625&h=3fb669b05b83b125915ec4635cee572fa332c8d610d8e7ad1422ba4f17f7c61a&size=980x&c=2441441407 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F02%252F636189122896093518-1042802371_food.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D625%26h%3D3fb669b05b83b125915ec4635cee572fa332c8d610d8e7ad1422ba4f17f7c61a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2441441407%22%7D" expand=1]

It is safe to say that I am not looking forward to Union dining. I prefer to have fresh produce and identifiable meat.

9. My sister

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F02%2F636189127581151297-738165894_sisters.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=317&h=69c5d335eba30660f8d44d2dfeacbe60a39173a9da19940188bad7f4b5a0589a&size=980x&c=3607617684 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F02%252F636189127581151297-738165894_sisters.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D317%26h%3D69c5d335eba30660f8d44d2dfeacbe60a39173a9da19940188bad7f4b5a0589a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3607617684%22%7D" expand=1]

My sister is cool sometimes, but I think she wants me to leave so she can be an only child again.

10. No homework

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F02%2F6361891283727992501246690033_relaxing.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=541&h=8d80394cc43d368fb26c11470c764912d26622d0fd0022961fa59572fb438ae1&size=980x&c=2329976316 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F02%252F6361891283727992501246690033_relaxing.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D541%26h%3D8d80394cc43d368fb26c11470c764912d26622d0fd0022961fa59572fb438ae1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2329976316%22%7D" expand=1]

Looking at my schedule for winter term, a huge wave is about to hit me and I am going to be drowning for the next ten weeks. This will surely make me appreciate the no homework life on break.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

Wikimedia Commons

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

Rich Schultz/Getty Images

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
