Some Thoughts

I'm sort of starting to miss doing things back home. You know, just normal things. Like baking cookies for church or watching Once Upon a Time with my sister. Or going to Tesco or letting the cat outside in the middle of the night because he's being loud. America is great, and I'm glad to be here. But sometimes I just find myself thinking about all the ordinary things I'm going to do as soon as I'm home.

xox,
Hannah

  1. I totally understand!
    I wish every day that I can have some sort of exciting adventure, but it's not until I'm actually on an adventure that I realize how much I really do love my predictable, mundane life at home...

    1. Glad you understand the struggle! :) It's true, you don't realize how nice normality is until you leave it! Thanks for commenting, girl.

  2. I know exactly what you mean. I love the idea of traveling and seeing new places, but at heart I'm such a hobbit. When we were gone for a weekend to Tennessee back in May, I was so happy to be home after those three days so I could settle back into my normal routine! :)

    1. Same! I'm certainly hobbit-y too. Sometimes I have to be forced into adventures ;)

  3. I get this so much... isn't it funny how we tend to crave for the things that we don't have, and then once we experience what we did want, we kind of want how things were like before?

  4. I know what you mean. When I was traveling I began to long for slow and normal days with my siblings and a good book. As much as fun as I had, it was hard for me to be FULLY relaxed amongst the crazy new surroundings and such. I hope that you can find a new normal at your university and begin to love Cali like home. Still, no matter what there is nothing like a home coming. Sometimes I think the best part of travel is that you learn to appreciate your home so much more.

    Much Grace to you!

  6. I totally get you. It's so exciting to be out and about and then you just hit your limit after a while, and you're like, "I need a little bit of normal."it's like eating oreos without milk to wash them down -- they're delicious but they get stuck on your throat after a while.

    Also, PS YOU WATCH OUAT? ?? did we know this?? :o

    1. The oreo anthology. Yesyes.

      Um yes we knew this because once I was like "I'm in love with Peter Pan tbh" and you were like "I won't judge, girl".

  7. I totally understand. When I'm away from home, I miss the simple, every day things, too.

  8. I know what you mean! Sometimes after long adventures you sort of miss everyday stuff. I often get it at the end of vacations. I think it should be called Bilbo Syndrome. Yes! Baking cookies and OUAT are the BEST! So homey. (-:

  9. I totally understand what you mean! Homesickness can be hard...especially with the little day to day things that just make life gorgeous.

  10. You're right, it's the little things that are so easy to start missing like crazy. Because, really, those are the most important things. <3 Thank you for sharing this. :)

  12. Oh, yeah, I get what you mean, Hannah. Even if you are enjoying the new sights, it's normal to miss what's familiar.
