One of the things I’m going to miss about being at home with my parents is the freedom they’ve given me to be “at home”. I’ve actually just spent the last two months relaxing in a way I don’t think I ever had in the last four years, and I’m incredibly grateful to them for not populating this trip with scores of adventures outside. Living close to a mall and a supermarket, while being in a community with lots of walking space has meant that excursions, where felt like/needed took place with a lot of ease, and not too much thinking. It’s odd, but I think that after my first semester at University, this is going to be the semester in which I miss home to some extent. It’s given me everything I needed, even the things I thought I would not need.
