Every collegiette goes through stages of withdrawal over their summer vacation, ultimately counting down the days until they return to their college home.

You missed your parents and siblings a ton, and it’s amazing to be able to catch up with them and feel surrounded by undying love.

Salivating over freshly cooked meals.

You honestly can’t get enough of anything your mom makes you, and every meal is a gift sent from above.

Catching up with high school friends.

You haven’t seen them forever, and sharing crazy stories from the past year with your BFF is the best feeling ever.
