I’ve been out of the United States for about 2 months now. For most of the time I’ve been homesick. Homesick to the point where I have contemplated going home, back to Colorado. When I do start to think about it though, I wonder what I would do with myself back there, and what kind of reception I would get from my friends. Would they think of me as a coward… eh probably not, but I built up this move to much they would probably have some judgments.
In the end I’ve decided to stay because it just hasn’t been long enough. And the summer months are coming! I can’t wait to lay out on the beach (which is a 2 min walk from my apt I might add) and bask in the sun, swimming in the warm Arabian Gulf. That will probably make life seem at least a little better. 🙂
While I am on the subject of being homesick… I know every place has it’s problems, but the US is pretty efing great. I miss the product selection for one thing! It is so hard to find what I need here. For instance, I need a swiffer. Nope. Can’t buy one here. Good luck getting someone to ship it here too. Not gonna work. But, all in all this has been a character building exercise I suppose! I have to work a lot harder to get even the simplest thing done, like dusting.
For those of you in the United States and the like, remember that you live in a place that glorifies convenience and that fucking rocks. 😛 But I’m gonna stay here beach side for at least a little while longer.
