The Best Things About Being Home

There's no place like home; there's no place like home

After a long year away at school, I look forward to being home. I am so thankful for the year of learning and experience I have had but I am very excited to be home as well. You forget what you have until you miss it and let me tell you, I missed home a whole lot this past year.

1. Home Cooked Meals

College food sucks, to say the least. I go to a school with some of the best food in the nation and I still think it's awful. While I'm home I take full advantage of my mother's cooking.

2. Familiar Places

It's great to come home and go to all of your local favorite places. You see a familiar face where ever you venture and there is a sense of being home.

3. Hometown Friends

The friends you grew up with since you were in Kindergarten will be home at the same time as you this summer break. You can talk and share stories while still creating new memories.

4. You Have Your Own Room

No more worrying about your roommate's mess and your space versus their's. Your room is your own and you can be the biggest pig you want. You can fling your clothes around and not have a worry in the world.

5. Your Mom Will Do Your Laundry

No more swiping your card to do laundry or walking up and down four flights of stairs. You just put it in the hamper and then a day or two later its clean and back in your closet. You may think it's the laundry fairy, but it's most likely your mother.

6. TV Channels Are Endless

It doesn't matter if you have Verizon or Time Warner, what does matter is the amount of tv channels you have. At home, you will have thousands of channels compared to the measly 50 you have at school.

7. No Alarms

Unless you have work or something to do there is no reason to get up. You can sleep in for as long as you want and even spend the day in bed. What are obligations?

8. Reliable Wi-Fi

No more spotty connections. No more sitting on your bed for five minutes as your computer reconnects. The Wi-Fi at home is speedy and reliable.

9. Bed, Sweet Bed

Your home is where your bed is. No more plastic mattress just your soft little piece of heaven. Appreciate your bed because you're only home for four months.

10. Your Own Bathroom

No more sharing your bathroom with other people and no more sitting in a stall. You can lock the door and enjoy your privacy while at home.

11. Being home

Dorthy said it best, "There's no place like home." Creating new memories and learning new things scholastically and about the world is cool and all but there truly is no place like home.

Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

For The Grandparents You Lost Before You Were Ready, Because You Never Can Be

We weren't ready and there is so much I wish I could tell you.

You were taken far too soon. It's not fair, I didn't have you for long enough. Why do the bad things happen to the good people?

It's been nine years and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you. When you left, I had to be strong for mom because she had to take care of everything. But when it was all said and done, I was curled up in the closet crying.

It's been nine years and you've missed so much. You didn't get to see me baptized, start cheerleading, graduate high school, get my first job, or have my first real boyfriend. It hurts to know you won't see me graduate college, get married, or have kids. But, I know you are watching over from Heaven. I can always feel your presence.

It scares me because Kylie was only 6 when you left us. I worry about what she remembers. I'm scared because I can barely remember your voices. But I am thankful because I remember grandpa's love for hats, grandma's love for scrabble, and a shared love of card games. I remember big Christmases, the mess of making chicken and dumplings, running down the hall away from the tickle monster, and most of all, I remember the love you showed me. Your love was overwhelming, safe, and unfaltering.

To you Grandpa and Grandma, Ray and Joy, I miss you, I love you, I hope I do you proud. I will show the love you gave me to as many people as I can. Your memory will live on through the stories we tell and you will never be forgotten.

I'll give mom a hug and kiss for you. I know you'd give us all one. Keep watching over, OK? I love you.
