I will explain the title, don’t worry.
What a whirlwind it has been being home! This is the third time I have been home since starting college, and each time it gets significantly better, and more needed. As the months progress, school gets harder- and I look forward to taking time off to sleep in my beautiful queen bed.
It’s a very interesting and weird concept the transition from high school to college is. You have these (for some people longer) four years with the same faces passing you each day, and then you graduate. Then you move away and only see these people on occasion. I think the best part about coming back to your home town or city, is the comfortability. When I am in town, I know that I know most everyone walking around and know where to go for everything I need.
Regardless of it being a small or large city or town, the comfortability you get when returning “home”, can’t be traded for anything. In my home town, when I return, nothing has changed. The pace is slower from living in a city, and I couldn’t have taken it more for granted growing up.
It all revolves around time. When you’re in high school, you don’t realize that once the college process comes around- nothing will ever be the same. Once you leave, everything changes- which can be both good and bad. I wouldn’t trade my college experience for anything, because I believe college is a learning and growing process, but it is hard and my nostalgia for the past grows every day. That might be due to my cancerly nature (I’m a cancer-leo cusp), so I am known for being nostalgic. Which is both good and bad as well.
The title of this post has to do with the Spotify playlist I stumbled upon today. I created it when I was having a rough first week of college, and feeling really lonely. I try to have creative titles for my playlists, so, cry wid me roll wid me is what came to mind.
If you’re ever feeling down try these few songs, and maybe you’ll feel like a lonely cancer perched up on her top bunk living alone in San Francisco. Or just sad. Let me know.
