1. When it all first begins, you're totally into the season.

2. And you're all about the perks of being home.

Real food, big comfy bed, no having to pay for anything... ahhh life is good.

3. But then the questions start, and at first, you're happy to talk about yourself..

"I stay pretty busy with school and stuff..."

4. But when you've been asked too many times, it starts to get real.

too real...

5. So you decide going out with your hometown friends is the answer.

Because townie bars are the best

6. And it's A LOT of fun.

"remind me again why I left home?"

7. But you still run into old acquaintances who want to know about your life.

So, you drunkenly tell them everything. Duh.

8. Sadly, you forgot about a thing called hangovers.

And the fact that they somehow multiply in intensity when you go out drinking at home.

9. And now you're half-hungover half-still drunk for your family party.

Okay, yep, now I remember why I left home.

10. So you try to converse with your family and pretend you are listening...

11. You REALLY try.

12. And again, you make sure to answer all inquiries about yourself in detail.

"What am I doing with my life? Let's see how many more ways I can answer this..."

13. But ultimately the free booze and food wins again.

Everybody's got a crazy aunt.

15. You start doing weird things to pass the time.

16. And you slowly remember why college in Florida sounded so appealing in the first place.

"How did I live here for so long?"

17. You get really tired of running into super successful old friends

18. But then you get Christmas money and immediately forget your woes.

Tis the season to go shopping!

19. And you end up buying something you definitely don't need.

20. And as much as this season can make you cringe.
