11 Thoughts Every College Student Has When They Go Home For The Summer

Going from living in a dorm room to your home town is a rollercoaster of emotions.

11 Thoughts Every College Student Has When They Go Home For The Summer

1. There is no way I had this much stuff in my tiny dorm room

You don't know how it happened...but somehow managed to fit your whole life in half of a dorm room for a whole semester

2. Not needing flip flops to shower is the best feeling in the world.

Walking straight from your room to the shower without putting on shoes is a feeling you missed more than anything.

3. I hate not being able to hang out with all my friends in a dorm room until 4 am.

Sadly, when you come home most of your new friends are 100's of miles away...not 100 feet away

4. I forgot how boring life is when you don't have class anymore.

What is there to do now that you no longer have tons of papers and tests.....besides work of course.

5. It’s crazy not to pregame in a dorm just to drink more at a frat party every weekend.

Although you may still be going to parties every weekend, no party is like a dorm or frat party.

6. What do I do with all this free time??

You have no more classes, none of your friends are in the next building anymore, and you don't know what to do with yourself.

7. I forgot there was more food out there other than ramen and the dining halls six choices.

Real food is a blessing and dining hall food will not be missed.

8. I forgot how amazing my queensized bed is.

Any bed is better than the cinderblock twin bed colleges give you.

9. I never want to leave my dog again.

Nothing is better than waking up to kisses from your dog.

10. Oh shit I can't swear as much in public!

When you aren't living in a college town people don't tend to appreciate constant swearing.

11. Holy fuck I miss my friends.

Although you have friends back home, the ones you made at college are beyond important and too far away for the next 3 months.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.
