This lovely time off for Thanksgiving has been much awaited! It has been 3 months since I have last been home and I am actually excited to be back for a little bit. It is going to be so weird being back and seeing everyone but I for sure am going to love sleeping in my own big bed and get away from dorm life. I know that I have changed being away but it has been for the best! I can tell these differences so I wonder if anyone else will. But to save yourself from torrential-parent-question-overload try a few things to remember your independence, I plan on going back to some of my favorite places and seeing old faces.
1. Go to the Farmer’s Market
I am starting to forget what non-college food is like. The Farmer’s Market at home is probably one of my favorite places for a morning croissant, fresh raspberry lemonade, and people watching.
2. Get a decent amount of sleep
You are most definitely lacking on sleep. Take advantage of your bed and clean sheets your mom probably put of before you came and make up for some of those long nights.
3. Have a coffee catch-up date
Meetup with an old friend and exchange your stories or meet someone who is about to graduate high school to give some good first semester advice.
4. Play with your pets, or parents
Your parents have been looking forward to this longer than you have and you cant’t bring your dog back with you.
5. Give Thanks
Offer to help with this thanksgiving and contribute whatever you can even if it’s your awesome table setting skills but don’t be asked to help, just offer. Then you can stuff your face with some good home cooking.
