[WARNING: This post is NOT about Japan, well kind of.]
I was having a little chat with one of my roommates for the program I'm in. She said she was feeling a bit homesick. And to be honest with you, I am too. I love Japan, I really do but not having people around that you know well can be uncomfortable. Funny thing is, when I moved away to college I knew no one but I didn't feel this way.
Maybe it's because my college is only about 400 (more or less) miles away from home, but now I'm across the Pacific ocean. To get home, I can't just hope in my car and drive on the highway for about six hours. I was talking to my boyfriend about it and he basically told me to suck it up which is easier said than done.
I've learned in the past two weeks that I'm easily annoyed, at least by people that I don't know well. I think I just have a lower tolerance of people I don't know.
But enough of the negativity. I vid chatted with my boyfriend and one of my old friends today (shout out to Jack). They really just gave me taste of home. I also love when I talk to my mom, even though I know my cell phone bill is gonna be hella expensive (good thing she's paying for it). Thanks, mom!
