You know that saying that once you get to college you appreciate home more? Well, that’s completely true for me. I’m in my sophomore year here at Western Washington University. When I was a senior in high school, I just wanted to leave home and go to college and get more friends and not be in my home state anymore. I needed out. Once I came to Washington, I didn’t immediately miss home, but over a period of time, I began to appreciate home and even miss it a little.
I am a very reserved person. Once you open me up a little, I’m incredibly weird, caring and passionate. It takes me a long time to get really close friends. So, this means that my friends from high school mean the absolute world to me. They know me inside and out and I can be my weird self around them. I love them more than I think they’ll ever understand.
So, when coming home, I appreciate every second of it. Soon (like actually very soon), we’ll be out of college and in the real world, and we won’t have as much time as we’ll like to see the ones we love.
This Thanksgiving break, I was home for about 3 1/2 days. I made sure to find time for my friends. All that other time, I spent with my family (which I love endlessly as well). We went to a coffee shop and a healthy juice bar to chat and catch up. And of course, many pictures were taken.
Here are a few pics that I captured of our wonderful reunion:
