I’ve just been hit with a dose of nostalgia, and I’m really feeling the distance between me and my friends and family back home. As much as I love my new friends here, I’m really missing home right now. I’m grateful for the technology that allows me to stay in contact with my friends and family back home though. Not that we wouldn’t stay close without it, but it certainly makes things a lot easier.
It seems that it took this long for it to really hit me that I am several thousands of miles away from home and it’s going to be that way probably from here on out since I don’t intend on coming back. I’ve been wanting to be on the east coast for a while now and despite my current sadness, I’m still glad to be here. I still have that feeling that I am exactly where I’m supposed to be, doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing. Although I’m still uncertain about what the future holds and occasionally look back and miss certain things, in the here and now, I am happy.
