So, the summer’s finally come to a close for me and it’s been an interesting one. My mum wound up going on vacation at the beginning of this month, leaving me to take care of the house in her absence.
Now, let me tell you, I have never known the painstaking amount of work it is to take care of yourself and the house. Where I spent days on end doing nothing, I now have to do chores…what a crazy concept…which leads to a more depressing concept – this is what life is going to be like once I finish my schooling.
I’ve always wanted the parentals to leave me at home and not bother me but quite frankly, I don’t want the added responsibility. I don’t want to have to do the laundry, cook for myself, clean the bathroom, vacuum every other day, wipe down stuff that collects dirt…why would anyone want that? I guess it’s back to the saying ‘When you don’t have it, you want it. When you have it, you don’t want it.’
Before I absolutely *had* to do any of these things, I would want to. I’d make myself food and clean and do the laundry. Now, it’s just more chores and more time away from whatever silly thing I would’ve done if I didn’t have something on my now never-ending ‘To Do’ list.
Anyway, I must say that I had a blast this summer and at the end, got a taste of how living at college would be. I’d somehow have to balance everything and while looking forward to the experience, I’m nervous and anxious…can’t have anything below an O, now, can we? [For those of you, non-Harry Potter fans, an O is an Outstanding – the best ‘grade’.] Also, let the record show that the last Harry Potter movie was fantastic, even though it wasn’t exactly like the book.
So, how is college living like? And have you ever missed the ‘rents when they left?
Just a funny comment here – I usually have related articles listed at the end of my posts since wordpress so conveniently suggests some pertaining to the content of the post and let me tell you that all of the articles are related to Harry Potter so no related articles for this post! xD
