Why You’ll Miss College When You Go Home For Thanksgiving

Because now you have a second home to look forward to going back to after break.

Why You’ll Miss College When You Go Home For Thanksgiving

As Thanksgiving break approaches, every college student across the country begins counting down the days—counting down the days until they reunite with their best friends, until they get to hug their pet, until they can eat their mom’s cooking, until they get to be in their own beds in their own home. But, amidst all of the excitement of going home, there’s no doubt that you’re going to miss school for one of your first real times going back home.

Specific to Tulane: New Orleans Weather

Nothing compares to being able to walk outside in jeans and a t-shirt in the middle of November, and going back to the northeast is going to be a shock. To anyone going back home to warmer weather, take advantage of it!

The Food

Honestly, homemade Thanksgiving meals are nice, but does any food really compare to New Orleans food?

Ubering Everywhere

You might have missed your car, but you definitely didn’t miss the convenience of not having to actually drive yourself anywhere while at school.

Not Having a Curfew

When you go home from school, it’s no surprise that your family is going to want to spend every waking moment with you, so they might reinstall your high school curfew. You might not miss how tired you were, but you’ll definitely miss the freedom.

Your Roommate

While going back to your own room is nice, there’s a certain comfort that comes with knowing your roommate will be there to keep you company in between classes and at the end of the day.

College Friends

A good night in with your friends definitely outweighs a wild night out. Seeing your home friends for what might be the first time since August is obviously going to be the best, but we’re all secretly dreading the feeling of missing our new college friends.

Don’t worry, before you know it, you’ll be back at school! But, make the most of your time at home, because squeezing all of the comforts of home into five days isn’t going to be easy.

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.
