Everything happens for a reason…


ENOUGH

ENOUGH (Photo credit: 铁蛋骑士)

Or does it really? You can be sensible and try to adapt to your situation as best you can.. but if you can’t then tough I guess? There is a reason why people who easily adapt to situations have more successful lives, more friends, a better career and so on. Sometimes adapting just takes time… maybe weeks, months or even years. It’s hard to accept changes, and this often makes me stuck in the process of adapting to changes, but as soon as I realize there is/was nothing I could do, the whole situation suddenly becomes a lot easier, which I realized several times during my exchange stay. It’s not always easy, and it’s not supposed to be.

I came back home


So, I finally got back home. I guess I can’t be called an exchange student anymore, when in fact I’m just back to being old me, which I was kinda during the whole thing.. but then not at all.

I feel like coming back home is like traveling back in time, as in traveling back to before I left. Everything is just as it was the weeks up to my leave. Two of the people who at that point probably were the most important  in my life had left, as in moved away. The three small, but yet big, differences since I got back, are that my cat and my dog died.. (I know, it’s being a typical child to grief over a pet.. ) Also a new dog moved into the house.

The bad thing about coming home is that nobody will ever understand what it feels like having two lives. I do have two lives; one that I left in the US, and one that I’ve come back home for. I don’t have any other exchange students in my area, so yeah I’m pretty much on my own again, in a way.

Anyway, coming home I’ve felt homesick, as ironic as that sounds. I miss Illinois and the way-too-hot weather, polka’s, country and all that other stuff.

Since my jetlag has almost worn off, I’ve almost gone back to my regular routines.. which means bedtime should be around now.. Making this short!
