Homesickness, aka the worst feeling ever when you have college work to do. I haven’t really felt a whole lot of homesickness up until now; which I would say is an amazing feat considering it’s my fourth week or so being five hours away from home. Now though, I miss home more than ever. I find myself counting everyday down until it’s finally fall break. One thing I miss about home is that I miss my crazy parents. They would always know just what to say and do to make me laugh. I miss our evening dinners and binge watching Netflix together. I miss my two annoying, and loving, dogs. I actually miss them taking over my entire bed and hogging all the blankets. Ugh, my BED! I miss that bed sooo much. I will never take my queen sized bed for granted anymore!
One good thing about college, is that it makes you appreciate the little things. I will never complain about how boring Springfield is. Seriously if one of my friends back home complains, I will laugh for a good minute or two. They have no idea what it’s like moving to a small town. I miss my friends just as much. Social media makes it easier to stay in tune to what is going on, but you aren’t with them to share new memories. Everyone is off doing their own thing now. Living their lives to the fullest. Some of my friend in my graduating class and I have already moved on. It’s normal though for people to move on. Heck I would be lying if I said there wasn’t a few people I’m glad to forever say goodbye to. I just hope that when I do go home that they’re all excited to see me as much as I am to see them! I know, sappy Tumblr moments. Its times when you feel homesick and down, that let you know it’s all going to be okay. I’ll pick myself up, do my homework, and keep moving on day by day. And today I have exactly 27 days [maybe 26 by the time anyone reads this] before I can go home!! And then I remember that it also means that there’s only 27ish days until midterms…Yay, gotta love college.
