10 Thoughts You Have Coming Back To A Cold Hometown From A Warm-Weather Vacation

Recently, I spent a few days on the white sandy beaches of St. Pete Beach in Florida. Upon arriving, I remembered how wonderful it was to have the sun hitting my face and not having to bundle up when I went outside. Then I went back to my frozen tundra hometown after a few days and reality hit that summer is a long ways away.

Here are some thoughts I had as soon as I got off the airplane and walked through a chilled tunnel to the terminal.

1. When's summer?

Not soon enough that is for sure.

2. It is cold.

I'm not used to it.

3. I'm going to miss wearing sandals, shorts, and T-shirts.

No such thing in below freezing temperatures.

4. Good bye tan.

Time to buy a self tanner?

5. Goodbye, sun.

Winter = clouds and no sun for days at a time

6. Why does everything look dead?

Winter killed the nature.

7. Wish there were palm trees here.

They scream warm weather.

8. How am I going to last so many more months in the cold?

Seriously, though.

9. It's really cold.

Walking out of the airport...

10. When can I go back?

Probably not for a long while.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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:

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
