I just wanted to write a quick post about what I am feeling at the moment and see if I was the only one.
I have been doing a lot of travel of late (Switzerland, The Netherlands, Austria and Spain) and talking to family a bit more, considering it is Christmas and New Years. However, as much as I miss them, I still don’t want to go home.
I do miss my comfortable bed, my nice bedroom arranged with all of my belongings, the sun and the heat. I also miss the structure within my university and a lot of other little comforts of home. Particularly, I miss going to lunch or for a drive with my older sister.
Still, I am dreading going home. I am not sure if it is just because I live on the Gold Coast, and I have so many places here that I want to see more of or am yet to see, but I really don’t miss people enough to want to go back to them just yet.
I have barely spoken to most of my family and friends since I left, and even then it has usually been on facebook with a handful of skype calls during the entire time I have been away. To be honest, I got annoyed at my dad constantly wanting to skype me, and most of the time I head out rather than stay on chat with friends.
I feel like I have learnt so much and changed so much, seen so many things and have so many new and exciting things to talk about. I have also seen so much of so many different places to live and ways of life. I don’t want to go back to my city. I feel like I will have less in common with the largely uneducated, uncultured and uninterested people around me than I do before.
Is it just me who is dreading the return home to see how much we have changed and everything else has stayed the same?
