    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

Parents’ House versus “My House”

This year I have found myself referring to my childhood home as my “parents’ house.” Not as my own. The first few times I caught myself. What’s up with that? I still have a bedroom there, I’m welcome anytime I want not to mention I live there in the summer, and my parents have even offered to let me live with them post-college. So how did this place I call home subconsciously come my “parents’ house”???? Maybe it’s because of my ex-boyfriend. He was from Duluth and so we’d often go to his parents’ house for dinner. He no longer had a room there that was his own. Or maybe it’s my friends who no longer have beds at their houses, they sleep on the couch when they visit. When does this happen and how are you supposed to feel? It’s making me swirl into an existential crisis of feelings. When the place you’re living in is only yours for 8-12 months and then it’s “Goodbye! Leave and find somewhere new to repeat this process!), how can you establish a physical entity that is “home”. I know that home is where the heart is, but a physical home still has a significant connection and is so sentimental.
