Home Making

It’s hard to make a place feel like home. It’s even harder to leave a place after working hard and successfully making it your home.

Last night, I went to sleep in the bed I share with my sister in our parents’ home. This morning, I woke up in the same place, stumbled out of bed, tripped on my dog, and went on a dimly lit search for a bathroom. This place isn’t my home.

My home is a dormitory in Hawai’i where I have to wear shoes to go to the kitchen and be dressed decently to do my laundry. I can play loud music on the weekend and rearrange the lounge to do my homework in comfort. I tell everyone that I want them to meet my sisters and I make sisters out of the girls I share space with.

I miss it.

Feeling homeless in a house is probably the worst thing about graduating from college and moving back “home.”

    It’s normal to miss the place you called home and made your own. Moving from your own place to shared space takes a lot of adjustment. Life will work out better than u might expect. Don’t believe me? Just watch 😉
