Being a Resident Assistant (RA) I came back to campus early. As I prepare for everyone else to come back and for new students to arrive, I thought I would look back on my last four weeks.
Going home was nice after finals, to go home and sleep in at home and relax at home. I was also able to stay on the being busy schedule with some work before Christmas at a Greenhouse I work at. So really my break started Christmas Eve, which is okay. Except that is also when my older sister (who has some health problems) started having to be in the hospital off and on. It was a strange Christmas.
After Christmas I got to watch my nephew, and hang out with my best friends from home. Living on the coast, I even dragged my friends to the beach, because I do miss the ocean while at Cobleskill. It was amusing, there on the beach is my best friend and me and all the people with their dogs, because it is dog season at the beach. We were laughing about it.
Break was very relaxing and productive at the same time. Towards the end I was itching to come back to school. That’s the interesting thing. I noticed this my first semester here. When picking a college, if done right, it’s like being split between two homes. The home your family is at, and your school home. Being far away from one to long makes you want to go back.2014-01-20
