moving home

Hey everyone,

Hope everything is going well, and your allergies aren't too bad. Have you seen the pollen today? It looks like snow! It's crazy. My allergies are NOT very happy. 

Well as finals progress, move out is quickly approaching. It is so sad. Move out is one of the worst parts about college. Your friends and roommates become another family. You talk all the time, you eat your meals together, you watch movies, sleep in the same room.. basically you're inseparable. It is sad to say goodbye, and head home, but the time comes where you have to.

Here are some tips to coping with moving home and making the transition easy.

For students:
1. Take a deep breath. You're going to get to see friends from home and catch up with them. You won't spend the summer alone.
2. Keep in touch with your friends and roommates. Facebook and AIM are great for this!
3. Make a date! Pick a weekend in the middle of the summer to hang out with your roommate and friends that don't live very close. It'll be fun and it'll give you something to look forward to!
4. Be patient with your parents & guardians. They love you, and missed you while you were at college, but they are still going to set some rules for home.

For parents & guardians:
1. Take a deep breath. We know you missed us, but we're going to be overwhelmed with the sudden change of environment.
2. Be understanding. We know we're under your roof, and respect your rules, but we've lived on our own for the past year, and we survived with more lenient rules. Sit down and talk with us, and come up with a mutual agreement.
3. Cook us a home cooked meal, it doesn't even have to be our favorite. We missed home cooking more than we missed Fluffy and our own bed.

Well, I have finals I must study for.

Thanks for reading,

Sam :)
