I usually don’t get all that homesick whenever I come back to Irvine for school, but coming back today was pretty difficult. Even though I was sick for all of spring break, I miss being able to stay home and not worrying about having to do anything.
Reading, drinking tea, playing with our new puppy Bruno, and finally being able to see my friends. That’s basically what my days consisted of this past week. And I enjoyed every minute of that freedom - freedom from not thinking about grades, studying, extracurriculars, working, responsibilities. Finally, a nice, simple life, and nice, sunny weather. I feel like that’s all I really need to be happy.
I realize this may just be my melancholy 20 year-old self speaking - I just wish spring break was a bit longer.
