1. Cat time. Anyone with a pet at home understands how tough it is to be away from the family furry friend for a long time. FaceTime dates with my cat were made a regular occurrence with my family, but still, I was really looking forward to seeing my cat, Ellie, when I came home.

4. Hanging with friends. Only a few of my friends had the same week off as I did, but the three of us that were home managed to spend lots of time driving through our hometown nostalgically.
