The Best Things about Coming Home for Summer

1) A real shower

If your freshman year was anything like mine, every night meant facing the horror of a communal shower. While it definitely could've been worse, trying to clean yourself in a 2x2 space with other people's hair on the walls while wearing flip flops definitely makes coming home to a shower a blessing.

2) Home cooked meals

The dining hall is a rough reality. With thousands of kids to feed, they obviously have to stick to basics to please everyone. Eating the same things every day got old, and fast. So when coming home to a kitchen that either you or your parents can use, the difficulties of the dining hall just make you appreciate what you have at home so much more.

3) Family time

While my friends at college definitely became family to me, I missed being able to go out and spend time with my parents and brother. It's important as we grow up and become more independent not to take these people who love us unconditionally for granted.

4) Time to relax

Freshman year of college is a whirlwind of fast paced, difficult classes that often lead to overwhelming all nighters followed by early wake ups. To be able to come home and not worry about homework, and to be able to go by your own schedule once again really is a much needed break.

5) Summer jobs/ internships

While this contrasts my previous point a bit, it still makes sense. Summer is the only chance you have to really focus on bulking up your resume without any other responsibilities. Whether you take a job to make some money, or start working in the field you hope to make a career, now is the time to really learn about what you want to do and find your niche in life!

And finally...

6) Your bed

Need I say more? Those uncomfortable, twin XLs can be forgotten for a few months while we get to sleep in the comfort of our own rooms once again.
