Your First College Christmas

By Fresh U Editors - Dec 25 2015

Spending your first Christmas at home after a semester of college changes your perspective on things. You cherish functional items, like socks, food, multiple-ply toilet paper, and maybe even tuition money. While you're not all grown up just yet, here's how a lot of students are feeling about their very college Christmas...

You care about sleep and food, but also presents. 

You try to be grown-up and functional, but it doesn't always work. 

You no longer stress about leaving all your gift wrapping to the last minute, because that's just how you live your life now. 

You don't have any money, so you've gotten creative in order to save. 

And your poor wrapping skills leave you wondering how you managed to get into college. 

Wrapping presents is hard and a life skill you don't learn in college. 

For some of us, your gifts become about form and function. 

Like, form and function is the recurring theme. 

You're happy getting toilet paper. 

You're happy getting printing materials.

You're happy getting soap. 

And you understand that Santa is there to help with your struggles. 

And a paid bursar bill is nothing short of a Christmas miracle. 

You're not really sure if you're supposed to buy gifts for everyone since you have thousands of dollars of debt in the cloud. 

And you feel bad about it. 

But at the end of the day, being a college student during Christmas can make you realize just how lucky you truly are. 

Merry Christmas!
