Things that have been hard at college

Tests. I miss getting really good grades.Riding my bike to school every day, even when the gears are frozen.Not eating gourmet meals every day because let's face it, no one can cook better than my mom.The absense of fruit and health foods.Going to bed at a decent hour.Learning it's ok to clean up after the other people you live with. I had this idea that every time I did something for my little brother at home, I was depriving him of the opportunity to learn responsibility. Service is good too though.Not having my family close byMissing my best friends Marcia and ChristianThinking about money. Stupid real world problems. Comparing home to here. Colorado Springs has so many wonderful things and people, but so does BYU. It's just different.
