Going away to college will have a huge role in your life. You are forced to make all kinds of adjustments; whether it is cooking for yourself, doing your own laundry, or making yourself go to class; college is a completely different atmosphere than at home. You may not be going to the same college as your best friends from high school, and you may be far away from your home. That is why when I come home from college, I always try to make the most of my time at home.
The first thing I do when I come home is spend time with my family. I cannot express how much you will want to see your family after months of being away at college. I try to spend as much time with them as possible on my breaks.
As a high school student, you should also take advantage of all the home-cooked meals you can get, because the dining hall food gets quite old after a while.
The next thing I do when I come home from college is to spend time with my best friends from high school. Although my friends and I still constantly stay in touch during college, there is nothing better than getting reunited with them during a break.
As a high school student, you should cherish all of friendships, and try to spend as much time with your friends as possible, because you will miss them.
I also enjoy going back to my high school and visiting my old teachers.
As a high school student, you should also enjoy and cherish high school.
Although college is great and fun, it is quite difficult, and much harder than high school. As a college student, I cannot wait to see my family, eat home-cooked meals, see my friends, and see my old teachers. You should definitely take advantage of all of those things, because I promise you that you will miss them.
