Moving Home for the Summer: As Told by One Direction GIFs

Chynna Mela is a senior journalism student at Temple University and an SC Campus Representative. She can usually be found planning her fall wedding to Harry Styles, attempting to become the female version of Perez Hilton, or eating peanut butter straight from the jar. Check out more posts by her here.


Finals are done, books are sold back and the family SUV is loaded down with your belongings. Maybe you just went home a few weeks ago. Maybe you haven’t been home since Christmas. Maybe you haven’t seen your family since they dropped you off in front of your dorm NINE months ago. Regardless, you’re headed home for the summer. All college kids (with the exception of a few) go through this at least once in their college experience, and most have similar experiences of how the whole shindig of moving home goes down. One Direction may have been too busy singing their hearts out to attend university, but they sure tell the story pretty well:

At first you are thrilled to be back home with your family.

After the tiny bathrooms in the dorms you practically feel like you’re showering at the Buckingham Palace

Heck, you may even decide to take a shower AND a bath

 You raid the fridge and eat enough to sustain a small country for the entire summer

A diet of pizza and beer for months has you looking at bananas like they are pure gold

You’ve never felt so cleansed by a piece of food in your life

The first Friday night back home you go to a high school party with your younger sibling and panic when you can’t find anyone you know

And you pray that you never acted like that or dressed like that just a few short years ago

But then you see one of your old friends and all is right in the world

The gang is so excited to be back that you all drink your high school beverage of choice in honor of “good ol’ days”

But instantly regret it as a flood of bad taste-memories come back to you

Somewhere during the fun someone proposes heading to the beach next weekend…

So you and your best friend meet for an early gym session the following morning

Post-gym you head back to your old job and you are SO READY to be back in the routine and see your old coworkers


(GIFs via Tumblr.com)

After work (you’re over it by the second hour) you retreat to the couch with a box of Oreos and binge watch shows you missed out on all year for a few hours. And that’s where it begins


(GIF via Tumblr.com)

“HAVE YOU BEEN SITTING HERE ALL THIS TIME?”

(GIF via Tumblr.com)

“ARE YOU EVEN GOING TO HELP OUT WHILE YOU’RE HOME? IS THIS WHAT YOU DO ALL DAY UP AT SCHOOL?!”

(GIF via Tumblr.com)

“YOU SLEEP IN UNTIL AT LEAST 1PM EVERYDAY” (NOT true you were at the gym, killin’ it..sort of)

And just when you think your mom is done nagging you hear her complaining about you to your dad in the other room.

(GIF via Tumblr.com)

So you leave your house like the college-aged-boss that you are..


(GIF via Tumblr.com)

And try to recall why you were so excited to come home in the first place

(GIF via Tumblr.com)

You pretty much repeat this process all summer. Every summer.

How is your summer at home?
