117 days

I know it’s a hackneyed phrase one expects to see stitched on a old lady pillow, but I think there’s definitely some truth to it.

The thought occured to me when in a moment of frustration with the visa situation, I found myself thinking “I just want to go HOME!”

Which, right after it ran through my head, struck me as odd. Not only because I’m currently staying with my parents, in the house in which I grew up, in the town I was born in–but because the place I was longing to be was an apartment I’ve never been to, in a city I’ve barely seen.

I’ve flung myself to amazing distant lands that I’ve fallen in love with, but it only ever felt like home when the boy was there.
