Last week I arrived back to the U.S.A., and it took me over a week to get back to this blog because I was basically hibernating. So far I have been enjoying small but marvelous moments with my siblings, their new dog, and my parents.
However, I’ve gotta admit, there have been lots of mixed emotions. I realised (realized… should I be using UK or USA spelling now?!?!) the week before I left that I was leaving my family to go see my family. No matter where I wander, be it in Europe or in the USA, I’ll be missing a home on the other side of the ocean. And while that’s a lil rough, it is also exciting! It means that I’ve got a home on both sides of the Atlantic ocean. It means I’ve had the opportunity to spend more time with more wonderful and precious people.
Since arriving home some highlights have been:
Meeting my nephew for the first time:
Chilling with my family’s new dog:
Embarrassing myself in my parent’s new apartment gym (no picture, your welcome).
Lots of chill time with my lil siblings:
Long walks and runs on the local lake:
My most important projects for this summer are building up this blog again and finishing the historical fiction novel I’ve been working on since high school. I seriously forgot how much I love writing. It is weird how immersing myself in a fictional universe makes me feel so alive! So I’m gonna try to make that a priority this summer (amidst summer camps, visiting friends, chilling with my siblings, and working for my dad’s iPhone App Design company).
Let’s get this party started! How is your summer going?
