I love being home for the holidays and getting to spend time with my immediate family; it's a great feeling. However, I have not been home for even a week yet and I am already missing my BW family. I miss my girlfriend, my brothers in my off-campus house, the football team, and everyone else. I have come to really enjoy everyone's company from the community we have built here. I miss the dinner dates with my girlfriend. I miss cleaning the house with my boys (and when I say cleaning I mainly mean just yelling at each other for the mess we have made). I miss working out with my fellow Yellow Jackets. This group of people have become part of my everyday life, and not being able to see them really affects me. To some extent I even miss going to class. (I cannot believe I just said that.)
Going to class becomes part of your daily routine and without it you seem incomplete. I love being home but I often become bored. If I am not working or working out for football, I often just sit around the house. There is not a lot to do in my hometown so after about three days, you have already done everything you can do. My family and friends in Cambridge have to work and it is hard to find time throughout the day to hang out. I am so glad that I chose to come to BW because if I had not, I would have never met this great group of people. The family I have built here affects me a great deal and I don't know what I would do without them. I love my family at home, but I also love all of my family at BW. That's all for now.
