7 Reasons Why I Don't Want to Leave Mason Yet

My sophomore year of college is coming to an end and I have never been more sad. Freshman year was okay and I was ready to go home when the time came. However, sophomore year is where I found my place at Mason. I joined multiple organizations, I made a pretty decent friend group and I’m finally taking classes I like. And now I move out this week and all of it is disappearing. Here are my feelings in gifs:

1. I won’t be able to see my friends everyday

All the friends that were at most a 10 minute walk away will now be hours away from me..or even states away.

2. Moving out is a PAIN

Via Giphy

Literally, who allowed me to have this many clothes, shoes and decorations?  How did I bring all of this into a small dorm room anyways? How do I take this all back?

 3. Figuring out how to function outside of a college campus

Wait, you’re telling me it’s not acceptable to just go eat at 3 am anymore? I can’t just walk around in pajamas in public and not get judged?

4. Not having a Starbucks and a Dunkin' Donuts within walking distance of each other

Via Giphy

I have to drive 10 minutes to my nearest Starbucks, do you know how inconvenient this is when I had one UP THE STREET?  OR NOT HAVING A DUNKIN’ WHEN IT WAS LITERALLY BELOW MY BUILDING??? I AM NOT OKAY WITH CHANGE GUYS.

5. Where am I going to get all this free unnecessary stuff from if I can’t go to a Kiosk in the JC anymore?

Candy, pizza, donuts, popcorn, a starbucks cup…..I got these from kiosks. Kiosks are how I got my scantrons. I have not paid for scantrons all this semester. Innovation is tradition here at George Mason University.

6. Who else is going to tell me I’m going to hell if I won’t see the guy in North Plaza every time it’s over 70 degrees?

Via Giphy

Sun’s out and so are my sins apparently.

7. The best times of my life are here

Via Gifer

Yeah, I’m 19 and I have my whole life to live, but these past two years have been the best and I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.

See you in the fall, collegiettes...given that I survive the summer away from campus.
