Had a rough morning in class but a good afternoon of Frisbee and a walk around the nearby neighborhoods (villages, really) trying to chat with people and joking with little kids. But right now, I’m sitting here at my study desk, chugging through some vocabulary words, watching a line of ants crawl across the wall, and glancing out at the dark night sky while listening to Social Distortion. I’m tired, and I wouldn’t call it homesickness, but I am struck by just how far away I am from friends, family, my house, and everything that, until recently, was associated with “home.” It'll be a while before "this place" really starts to feel "like home." As for now, I think it’s time for some sleep…

Awww. I have those moments too -- realizing how far away you and Katie are. They pass, but when they hit, they hit hard.
