Coming home after being away at college is always the best feeling

The First 10 Things You Inevitably Do When You Get Home From College

We either dread going home for the summer or it's what we look forward to all semester, either way we're all guilty of running to all of the things we missed out on during our stressful school year.

1. Laying in your bed for hours at a time because you missed it so much and your dorm bed will never compare

Yeah, our twin sized beds at school do have their own comfort to them, but it's something about our bed at home that makes it 10x comfier.

2. Raiding the cupboards for all of the snacks that you missed out on for the past 9 months

At the beginning of the school year, we couldn't wait to dive into the endless food buffets at the dining halls but fast forward a few weeks and we start to realize that nothing compares to the food back at home.

3. Waiting until you move back home to do ALL of your laundry because it’s free

We're all guilty of it, our Moms scream our names in vain asking why we didn't do laundry before moving out and we all have that little smirks on our faces because we know that going home means that we don't have to pay for the washers and dryers.

4. Taking your car keys and running with them because you never have to walk anywhere again for the next three months

Maybe you were lucky enough to have your car with you on campus, but for the ones who didn't, coming home to your own car is the best feeling. No more walking everywhere or relying on others!

5. Throwing your shower shoes in the trash because you don’t have to worry about stepping on hairballs

Dorms aren't the cleanest to begin with, but it's the showers that make them even worse. Walking into the shower room having to worry about what you were going to see or step on, NO more!!

6. Cuddling up with your pet and never letting them go because you don’t know how you survived without their furry cuddles for so long

Yeah we all have our special blankets and stuffed animals we drag along to college, (we're all guilty) but nothing compares to snuggling up to our furry pets when we get home for summer break.

7. Driving through your hometown smiling because you forgot what it felt like to be in the most perfect place ever

On the drive home from school you pass all of the things that make your hometown special and you can't help but smile at how happy you are to be back.

8. Deleting all of your early alarms for class

This is the first thing we do when we're done with classes, you know you did it as soon as you realized you never have to wake up early for that 8 AM again.

9. Already planning the road trips to visit your college best friends that live miles away

Leaving all of our college friends behind for the summer is hard but as soon as you get home you realize that you really can't live without them and a trip to visit them is needed ASAP.

10. Crying over the fact that you’re home and everything is different compared to college life

Yeah, it's summer and life's great and we're free of school work and studying, but once you realize you have to face real world adult situations like actually paying for your dinner, gas, tickets, etc... that's when you wish you never would have left your perfect little college town.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
