Thank God it’s Friday, am I right or am I right?! I am so happy to be able to say that I am posting this blog post from the comfort of my couch at home- yeah that’s right, my home home a.k.a not my dorm room. My college had a mini little break for Columbus Day, so Rob and I traveled home yesterday.
Today is also day 9 of the October Blogging Challenge, so yay for that. Today’s prompt is “Throwback Thursday”. I’m not really too sure about what to write for this one, so I think I’m going to drift away from it and talk about why coming home on breaks from college is the absolute best thing ever.
-Nothing beats that “home” feeling. Taking a break from the college setting and having a few days to relax and enjoy the comfort of your own home is the absolute best feeling.
-This one is pretty self-explanatory. I don’t think I have ever heard someone talk about how much they’ll miss the dining hall food when they go home for a college break… Plus, what’s better than home cooked meals and your favorite snacks?
Your Long Lost Pet.
-Whether it be a dog, cat, hamster, or even a fish, this little guy has been patiently waiting for you to arrive home ever since you first left for school. Coming home to your best friend is awesome.
-Most college students don’t get the freedom of having their car up at campus until they are of junior of even senior status. It’s awesome to come home and be able to go wherever you want to go again; you’re not stuck in one spot like you usually are on campus.
-Not gonna’ lie, my college bed is hands down a lot comfier than my bed at home (shout out to my fabulous aunt for buying me a massive mattress pad!), but coming home to your own bed is the best feeling. Let’s not forget the fact that when you’re home you can sleep in as late as you want with no disruptions.
-Just admit it, you know you missed your parents like crazy at school and couldn’t wait to come home and hang out with them during break.
-Most people go to college in places that are pretty far from where their home is. It’s awesome to be able to come home and go to the same spots you went when you were growing up, and go to the same stores that you normally did when you used to live at home all of the time.
What is your favorite part of having college break? I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend!
