Things I Do and Don't Miss About School

Been home for about a week and I already miss a few things about school.

Things I Do and Don't Miss About School
Forbes

There are so many great things about being home and away from school that I have started to realize in my first summer back home from school. I guess I didn't always appreciate everything that was available to me at home. I've been thinking about the things I took for granted but also the things I will miss about school. College was really special but I will for sure enjoy the three months of not paying for everything myself and edible food.There are a few things about college life that I can't get at home. I've only been home for about a week, but I've been thinking about the things I will miss about being at school and the things I won't.

1. I miss having a few of my best friends and favorite people in the world close to me all the time. Spending so much time with these people makes it crazy to have to be away from them for so long.

2. I don't miss eating the same meal every day because the dining hall doesn't have other food.

3. I miss the late nights sitting on the lounge floor, eating pizza, trying to do homework with my best friends.

4. I don't miss depriving myself of sleep because I didn't start my homework early enough.

5. I miss laughing about the most stupid things at 4 a.m.

6. I don't miss having to stay up all night.

7. I miss being able to make all of my own decisions.

8. I don't miss having to remember every single thing I have to do because no one is around to tell me what to do and feeling pretty clueless about everything.

9. I miss my bed and the funny little conversations I would have with my roommate before we fell asleep.

10. I don't miss paying for laundry twice a week.


11. I miss having a roommate that will yell at me to clean up my stuff and take care of me when I need to be.

12. I don't miss going to class and taking tests.

13. I miss having a house full of some of the best girls I have ever met that can make me feel better instantly.

My first year at college was so fun and I met so many amazing people. So wonderful to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
