I went home for fall break this weekend and it was very different from what I remember. A lot has changed in the 1.5 months I’ve been gone for college. This is my first year in college and I feel like I’ve been able to adjust quickly. On campus, I’m super busy, doing some kind of activity almost everyday. When I got back home, I felt like there was nothing for me to do. At home there isn’t the same closeness/coziness that you feel on a college campus. Everything on campus is within walking distance, while I have to drive to get anywhere at home. My friends literally live in the same building as me on campus. I felt, there’s no other word to describe it, bored at home. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m so used to college life, or maybe it’s because I only had four days of break, but everything just moves so slow back home.
Anyways, I went out with friends and I went back to my high school to see some old faces. I met with some teachers, who gave me advice, who told me they missed me. I missed everyone back home, which is why I chose to come back. Everyone, my peers, my teachers, and my coaches, have all influenced me in positive ways and I’m glad to have gotten to know all of them. I’ll keep coming back home, because home may not be as “fun” or action-packed as college is, but there’s no place like home.
So The Weekly Roar is going to my weekly blog post on literally anything. I will talk about basically anything that’s on my mind when I write it. This is going to be a creative outlet for me, and it’ll (hopefully) improve my writing a bit. I will also be writing game dev pieces, although not as regularly, since they will be updates on Reflex Arena or other projects that I’m working on.
