The 10 Stages Of Missing Your College Friends Over Summer Break
John Reinbott

The friends you make in college are quite possibly some of the most amazing, supportive and fantastic people that you will ever meet and have in your life (besides, of course, your awesome friends back home). You go from complete and total strangers who just so happen to be in the same major or living on the same floor to a group that could never be separated.

These people are always there for you whether they're helping you get through another mental breakdown or celebrating the fact that you just passed an exam. Despite how much you may not be able to stand college, the moment you leave campus for summer break you can't wait to come back to see your friends again. Here are the ten stages that all college students go through when they're missing their friends over summer break.

1. You miss them the moment you leave campus to head back home

I know I just spent the past three weeks complaining about how much I hate my school but can we go back now?

2. You constantly feel like your day is lacking something

What's the point of getting up every day if I'm not in a dorm where I can walk two feet and be surrounded by all my friends?

3. You find yourself texting them and giving them updates on a daily basis

Update: Just pooped, heading to Walmart to buy food and then taking a nap.

4. You tell your inside jokes to your friends back home

And it is extremely uncomfortable and awkward because no one knows what you're talking about since they don't go to school with you.

5. You set up a weekly Skype-date session

...which primarily consists of you watching one another eat.

6. You start a countdown until you get to see each other again

Three months, five days, eighteen hours and three seconds.

7. You make a list of everything you're going to do once you're reunited

Yes, I know we're broke, but we're going to do this, this and this.

8. You talk about how you wish you didn't live so far apart

If I could I would make my parents move so we could be neighbors.

9. You miss going on adventures with them

Your favorite sports, outdoor activities and spontaneous trips will never be the same without them.

10. You book it across campus to find them once you get back

If only we could run like this when we're at the gym. I've missed you so much.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:
