21 Thoughts You Have When You Come Home From College


21 Thoughts You Have When You Come Home From College
Gabby Sheets

Ever since I moved back home, three hours away from the university I have been attending for the past year, I have had a lot of... well, thoughts. It turns out that I have changed quite a bit. Now, this town that I never even thought twice about living in feels kinda weird. It feels like it is missing something, like an Insomnia Cookies storefront or my own personal thermostat that I am free to adjust to ICY COLD without any complaints from my parents.

College life is not the same as home life, and this is what I've been thinking as a result of this drastic difference...

1. Holy CRAP, I missed my dog!

2. Oh, the luxury of having a washer and dryer INSIDE your home.

3. I forgot what actual meals tasted like.

4. Wow, this town is like... really small. 

5. Damn, I need a job.

6. Damn, no will hire me.

7. Oh my god, I am so bored because NO ONE WILL HIRE ME. 

8. I forgot what it feels like to share a wall with my PARENTS. 

9. Why don't residential towns have Insomnia Cookies???

10. I miss college.

11. I do NOT miss the college workload.


13. I wish I still had control of the thermostat.

14. I hate unloading the dishwasher. I miss paper plates 24/7.

15. I miss my college friends. 

16. It is SO GOOD to see my high school buddies though. 

17. Oh, right... everyone I went to high school with lives here too... fantastic. 

18. Woah, I do not miss high school.

19. The Wi-Fi works so much better when THOUSANDS of people aren't also using it.

20. I kinda just wanna sleep all summer... BUT NO.

21. It's good to be back :)

Moral of the story though is: PLEASE HIRE ME.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
