Getting back in the swing of things

Now that I’ve been home for university for a little over a week, I’ve started to get back into the routine of living at home.  I gotta say, it’s a little different than university living!  I have definitely noticed a few major differences, some pros and cons if you will.  And just because I love lists, I’m gonna write them down.

Pros of Living at Home

  • home-cooked meals – cafeteria food is good, but nothing beats mom’s cooking!
  • two bathrooms – two bathrooms for five people is WAY better than one bathroom for four girls.
  • my puppies – okay, they’re not technically all mine, but I must admit, I missed the little fur balls while I was away.
  • actual TV – I don’t really watch a lot of TV anymore (compared to my old TV habits that is) but it is nice to not have to search Netflix or {il}legal sites to find a show you want to keep up with.
  • space to lounge – my room was pretty small, so my bed was where I spend most of my downtime.  Being home, I have a plethora of choices when it comes to sitting and doing nothing!
  • seeing my family and friends – this probably should have been higher on the list, but seeing familiar faces you haven’t seen in a while is always nice.
  • working – not exactly a pro, but I need money and I have a job here!  I scoop ice cream for tourists, but work is work.

Cons of Living at Home

  • having to get used to the short toilets – the toilets in res were a lot taller, so I find myself falling through the air every time I try and do my business…
  • no public transit – I live about ten minutes from the edge of town, meaning I have to procure a vehicle every time I want to meet someone or go shopping.
  • shopping – speaking of shopping, my town has the tiniest mall ever.  We only recently acquired a Winners and a Sportchek.
  • movies – I watch a lot of movies, but my town has one movie theatre with two screens.  We rarely get all the blockbusters, and if we do they’re here way later than anywhere else.  (We also went digital in November… on one screen.  It’s a small town.)

As you can see, there are things to get used to, but I’m happy to be home.  I really missed the place.
