Yeah, what the title said .
I went on vacation this weekend, and despite a few twists here and there, including the overuse of alcohol by some of my relatives (my family hardly drank at all in the past, but things have changed) it makes me realize just how much things HAVE changed since I left for college. People grow up. And some never do.
Though, I must say. Saltwater has amazing effects on the brain. I haven't been able to think this clearly since I went on vacation last year. Escaping is a wonderful thing.
Being away from home reminded me of college, and then made me realize just how much I miss everyone. There is a fellow blogger I miss the heck out of, as well as a beautiful circle of friends. I can't help but to wish that they are having as amazing of a summer as I am, because they all deserve it.
It's weird though, I was having a conversation with my bloggerbuddy the other day, discussing how home feels different. And it really does. Not in a bad way though. It's almost as if expectations of us have changed, and it's a different way of life to live up to them. Though we haven't changed as people, our roles in the household have changed. I feel now more like a tenant than I ever have. And though I'm sure everyone has done their best to make it feel like the home it was, it doesn't. And it never will again.
However, this just means that I'm moving on to a different part of my life. I'm growing up, and whether I like it or not, it's happening. So, instead of resisting the inevitable, I'll embrace it. It's part of life. =)
