In exactly one month I leave for Sydney, Australia. To say I am excited is an understatement. Until then I am living in the comforts of my home at my mom’s house. This is all fine and dandy, and I love getting a good laugh from my mom, but seriously I don’t know how commuters live off campus.
I have never lived off campus during my time at Butler. My parents gave me the space I needed and I have been able to experience everything I wanted which was living on campus. For some people living on campus isn’t a big deal, but after my siblings went to a college where commuting was common I knew I wanted to live on campus. Living at home wouldn’t be so bad, but every time I want to see my friends I forget they are all back at Butler.
Thankfully for me I only live 20-30 minutes away from Butler depending on traffic. However, driving back and forth all the time is not ideal because of gas, so I have to be really careful about how many times I actually go to Butler during the week. On top of all this I’m not taking classes right now so even walking around campus without a backpack is also weird.
Commuters I don’t know how you do it but you deserve a gold star. I definitely suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out), so not being on campus is driving me nuts! At least there’s only one month left until I leave for beautiful Australia!
