Life away from home

Moving out from home was so very difficult yet so exciting. It’s hard to be so happy and at the same time sad. I knew that when I moved out before school started that I was going to be starting my own journey, without my siblings and without my parents. At first, it wasn’t too bad, I realized that it was going to take a lot more to keep me busy, hence I didn’t always have a sibling lying around the house to hang out with if I was bored. Yet, I knew that if I wanted to be “independent” and enjoy this living without my family, I would have to keep a positive mindset and keep moving forward. The first three months have been great. I definitely miss my family so I do come home and touch base every two or three weeks, it’s impossible to stay away longer because every time I talk to them they are undergoing another adventure I wish I was a part of. What shocked me the most however, was this past week when I got sick. At home, the minute my little sister would hear me cough I would have a cup of tea by my side with options of what kind of medication to take, yet here I was in LA without my little sister…it was definitely a reality check that my family was two hours away and I could not depend on them at a time like this. It is weird how I thought moving out was going to be amazing, and yes I definitely enjoy living in LA and being on my own adventure, yet there is nothing better than going home and reuniting with my siblings and my parents. The bond that we share….words cannot explain. The moment I feel lonely and out of place, I know that I can drive to somewhere where people love me for who I am and the goofball I like to act and no matter what….. I know they love me and nothing could change that. I am so excited to head back home for the holidays so I can be with my family and reconnect with them. Although I speak to my parents and siblings throughout the day on a regular basis, it’s not the same as being surrounded by them. A family like mine is something you have to be present for to understand, I cannot wait to sit at the dinner table with them, all six of us so we can be all together again and complete as a whole. I am SO excited to head home, I’ve packed up all my things and I am ready to be back in my house where I will be reminded what it is like to live in a chaotic, upbeat household. Enjoy your families for the holidays, as I know I will
