I Miss Home

It feels weird knowing that I probably won’t be going back to my childhood home to live.  I know it’s part of adulthood.  I just feel like I’ve made a mistake.  I think it’s those little things I miss.  For example, being able to talk to mum and dad whenever I feel like it.  Having a comfortable bed.  ‘Talking’ to the dog.  The beach.  The house.

This past week I have been asking myself: ‘why was I so excited to leave?’.

It wasn’t until the last few days in NZ that it really hit home.  That when I do come home, it’d just be for a visit.  Who knows though.  I might decide to go back home to live.  I might only be gone for a year.  I might be gone for two.  It all depends what happens here and whether I enjoy it!

In all honesty, I don’t think I’ve made a mistake.  I think it’s just the fact that I’m alone here and I have too much time in my own head!  And I think it’s the fact that I don’t really have mum and dad to talk to – they are in Tasmania with limited wifi!

I think moving out of home (but still in your own country) is so different to moving halfway across the world.

I keep thinking that maybe I should have just gone on holiday here for 6 weeks and then gone back to NZ to work.

I know that soon I’ll be too busy with work.  And I’m hoping that will take my mind off home.

Who else has had those awful homesick feelings?

    1. It’s only been since New Years that I’ve been thinking of home. It’s always in the evenings…I know why because that’s when I’m alone! Yeah, there are so many opportunities for me here. But I have something to look forward to later this year – my sister’s getting married in NZ, so I’ll be heading back home 🙂 Thanks for your comment. Happy New Year.
