Chameleon

You're probably wondering what's up with the odd title. Back at Cal, my roommate and I always talked about how we seem to revert back to our old selves when we go back home. Like, sometimes we feel like we're two different people: the one at Cal who takes buses to Safeway and the one who relaxes at home with all the luxuries. Now that I'm at home, sitting on a sofa for the first time in 4 months, I really don't want to go back to my studio in Cal.

Whenever I go back home, I'm usually extremely happy to cook and bake a bunch of stuff for my family. It's pretty funny since I'm so lazy in my studio at Berkeley. I usually pig out on junk food for dinner when I'm at school. Horrible, I know.

Another thing I've noticed is that my parents tend to treat me the same way they did before I left for college. In their eyes, I'm pretty much still a little kid who needs permission to go hang out with friends. It feels kind of strange since I can basically do whatever I want whenever I want at Berkeley. I don't really do anything my parents wouldn't approve of, though, I think. I've been told that I don't have much of a college life. I don't really mind. I'm pretty content with my experience right now.

Anyways, I hope you guys are having fun over break!
