Winter Break Recon

 Written by    December 16, 2013

As I’m approaching the end of my first week home for winter break, I’ve gathered some significant intelligence regarding my old, yet simultaneously uncharted, living situation.

Location: My parents’ house (or is it still My House, proper noun?)

Time: Late morning (now that I don’t have an 8 a.m. class bringing my slumber to a quick end)

Temperature: Freezing (my house is kept at a “cool breeze” level which, compared to my tiny, superheated dorm room, seems more like the tundra)

Important observations are as follows.

The Good:

  • Sleeping in my own bed
  • Having a COUCH (as opposed to my lovely, if somewhat flattened, bean bag at school)
  • Enjoying the spoils of a full kitchen, complete with a stocked fridge
  • Driving (who knew I would miss it so much?)

The Not So Good:

  • No chance of a late-night Insomnia Cookies delivery
  • No movie nights with my roomies as we eat the aforementioned cookies
  • No more awesome (and free!) exercise classes at the RPAC
  • No more unexpected moments of fun conveyed via email or poster near the elevators (Puppies at Morill! Hot cocoa in the lobby!)

Have I reached my parentheses limit for the year? (I hope not.)

Hope everyone is enjoying a well-deserved break complete with unabashed Netflix viewing…
