5 Questions All College Students Get Asked During Thanksgiving Break

We all know the feeling. You're with your family again, everyone is laughing and cutting up. You think this is finally the year where the family has moved on from bombarding you with questions. But you are so, so wrong.

That one particular family member sees their chance, swoops in and before you know it, you are once again drowning in the annual interrogation that is your life. Questions like:


1. So, do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?

I feel like this is the most commonly asked question. It's the one the whole family is dying to know. I mean, you're in college, right? That's totally what you're there for. 2. Hey, how's school going? 

How's school going? Really? Finals Week, aka, Hell Week is an impending doom hanging just over my head. I'm exhausted, overwhelmed and could really use a hug. School is school. I'm there to get my degree and graduate. 

3. What do you want to do when you graduate?

Listen, Linda, I'm just trying to get through next week. With any hope, I'll get this degree and a job. But, bottom line, I don't know what I'm eating for dinner next week, let alone what I'm doing when I graduate. 4. Are you making good grades? 

Honestly, that's a really good question. We can only pray we're somehow scraping by. 

5. I bet you party a lot at school, right?  

Of course! In fact, when I'm not looking for a husband, I'm out partying! That's what college is all about! 

In all seriousness, we know that our family is just curious about our lives and that they only ask because they miss us. We appreciate the love and concern. But really all we want on break is a hug from you and some home-cooked food. :) 

Happy Thanksgiving, Collegiettes! Enjoy your time with your family and treasure the many, many questions they ask you!
