When You Attend College Away From Home, This Is What Happens When You Return To Your Parent’s House For The Holidays
The one thing you look forward to when you’re a stressed out college student is your holiday vacation. You count down the days, pack your bags, and think about how relaxing the next 2 to 3 weeks are going to be for you. However, holiday breaks are not all fun and games…
After a long and stressful week of finals, it’s always a great feeling being able to reunite with your family and spend quality time with them over the holidays.
This is really the best feeling ever.
But as soon as you’re back home, you immediately lose all sense of privacy.
Everyone at your house thinks it’s cool to be ALL UP in your business.
And all of a sudden you have a curfew again.
You can’t go out anywhere without a rundown of questions from your mom like, “¿A donde vas?, ¿Y con quién vas a ir? ¿Y a que hora vas a regresar?”
On the bright side, you get to relax at home and forget about school for just a few weeks. Maybe even sleep in every morning…
Instead, you’re woken up by loud music and the voices of your parents telling you to get up and help with the chores.
My mom loves doing this especially on weekends.
However, being able to enjoy some bomb home cooked meals is what makes all the chores totally worth it.
Since I’m a bad cook, I enjoy every moment (and bite) of this.
In addition to home cooked meals, you also come across a ton of chisme at the dinner table, which can be so exhausting and invasive.
You get asked about your dating life, your personal life and there’s no sense of boundaries when it comes to the chisme they want to get out of you.
BUT — being back home for the holidays means reuniting with your besties and hometown friends.
“Reunited and it feels so goooood.”
The only problem is trying to coordinate a time and date to go out with your friends, since everyone already has their own holiday plans.
This is the ultimate struggle.
And once you’re on your way to go out, your parents assign you 15+ errands before you leave.
All of a sudden my shopping trip to the mall turns into a pitstop at the bank, a delivery to my grandma and a trip to the grocery store.
But no matter what happens, come next holiday break, you’re filled with just as much excitement about being able to go back home to your loved ones.
There’s no better feeling. ❤️
