Chapter XI: Who’s Counting?
Fall Break just ended. Spent the 3 days of break in Columbus, Georgia. Why Columbus you ask? Well because that’s where most of my amigos here grew up. Saw the homeland so to speak. We took that city by storm and did it all. I know, I know, pics or it didn’t happen. I took a shiz load of pics, and will be posting them sometime this week. Columbus was great, but it wasn’t my home away from home, Athens.
It felt good to get back to Athens and it def feels like home. But seeing all my friends’ real homes, meeting all their families, and seeing their ol’ stomping grounds, made me realize how much I miss home. It has been creeping up on me these past couple weeks, but I think its finally hit me in the face. I’m almost, possibly, just maybe, starting to feel downright homesick.
I’ve been here for a long time. So long that Athens has taken me over from little things I’ve been saying (bless their heart), to what I call home and where I feel most comfortable. So I guess its natural to finally start really missing my true home. Its just the little things adding up. Like seeing all my friends with their families. Having to deal with stressors such as school without the direct help from my family. Missing my favorite experiences with my friends (Blackout game, first snow of Utah, etc.). All those things are adding up quickly…
Having said that, there’s still a lot I want to accomplish and experience in my time left here. My eyes aren’t getting big and focused on the finish line, but its finally cookin on the back-burner of my mind. I’ll still be livin in the moment, with tons of milestones left here at UGA such as Homecoming, UGA football back on track, basketball starting, and Semi-Formal to name a few.
All that and so much more will happen between now and December 12th when I board a plane to go home. That’s 45 days away. But who’s counting…?
I miss playing with my dog and gamedays at Rice-Eccles.
I learned that you can never underestimate the hospitality of others, and that people are forever products of their families.
