Being at university has been incredible and I have loved every second of it so far but occasionally I do feel a bit home sick (as expected) so during my “Reading/Enhancement” week I came home for a few days to spend time with my family and friends from up north.It became more real that I don’t live at home anymore when visiting because I felt as though I’ve missed out on loads and there was a list as long as my leg of things to catch up with; most of which being friends. I remembered all the amazing memories and places back home that I wanted to revisit, the shops I wanted to nip in and the food places I wanted to go. Coming home for just a few days probably wouldn’t be long enough for all of this…
After going through a rough couple of weeks feeling home sick, having a lot of work to be doing and going through a break up, I was extremely excited to come home, despite it only being for a few days.
Being home didn’t disappoint! Surprising my little sister after school, having a lovely lunch with my Grandma, Mum and one of my sisters and going on a wild night out in York with some friends was a weekend I’ll cherish as one of my faves.
Don’t get me wrong; there were people I didn’t get to see and things I didn’t get to do which I wanted to, however that just means another trip is in order 😉 I obviously plan on coming home at Christmas time for Christmas and New Year, however with a job in Leicester and the struggles of a student budget I feel there might not be another trip before then.
University feels like a different life (I sort of feel like Hannah Montana, although my two lives are miles apart from each other) and when I am home all my responsibilities I would normally have E.g. Lessons, Cooking, Cleaning, Time Management, kinda go out the window.
I love being at University, but I love being home also.
Thanks for reading, let me know how you feel about going home from University if you’re a student? And if not, what your favourite thing about home is?
