So after my first semester of uni, I have today returned home after almost 3 months of not being here and it’s a feeling that’s kind of quite hard to comprehend – strange, but also good.
For some reason it seems like I haven’t been here in at least a year – I guess because uni is such a completely new experience that it feels like you’re in a completely different world. The change is so huge it’s sometimes a bit overwhelming to actually make sense of. Coming home is kind of like walking back into nostalgia. The place is familiar and yet I feel like a slightly different person. Everything is where I’ve left it and yet I don’t feel like it’s where it should be.
It’s been really nice to catch up with my family though and I’m sure that even though I feel slightly like I’m a guest in my own house at the moment, it won’t be long before I’ll fall back into routine. Having an evening sitting in the lounge with everyone and watching a film has definitely made me feel really happy to be home.
I’ll probably wake up tomorrow and it will take my brain a while to register where I actually am, but I’m looking forward to a good and quiet night’s sleep. And it definitely feels a lot more Christmassy here with the tree up so I’m looking forward to celebrating it with family and friends 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I will hopefully be publishing a lot more posts over the next few weeks!
