I have missed home. Do not get me wrong, I absolutely love school. I love the friends I have made there, the activities and classes I am taking, and I am very happy there. I can’t imagine myself spending this past year anywhere but there. But coming home, even for just tonight, really reminded me of how much freedom we had here. I always wanted to go to college in the city, and I do not regret that. I love the city. I love city lights, how there are always people up and about, and the energy in the city. But there is something so alluring about fields, clear night skies with visible stars, fresh air.
I guess it’s also because I got to see some of my favorite people tonight too. I forgot how easy it is to be home, and how easy it is to fall back into my usual routine here. I had a wonderful night tonight, helping my sister get ready for her junior prom. Taking pictures with my family, and going through the whole 120983412 million pictures again was complete deja vu. I had dinner with one of my closest friends and then my love came. It’s crazy how much fun one can have with a pokemon book, chinese characters, and some angry bird dolls. I haven’t laughed this much and been this comfortable in ages. I am comfortable with people at school, but there is something just relaxing about chilling with people you grew up with. Afterwards, I finally got to skype with Phoebe, who I haven’t talked to in forever (sad face).
Seeing so many high school friends in one week, especially seeing them come home or packing to come home, has really put me into a summer mood. I’m ready to come home.
Sorry I’ve been awful at updating, but hello tumblr world :) Hope you guys have been well.
