Home Sweet Home!

24 Nov 2014

I’m writing this cuddled next to my mother, eating Americanized Chinese food, and watching Scandal! It feels so good and I’m so glad to be back with my family and friends. But I miss Sydney SO much already. There are the superficial things I miss such as the weather and beaches. But more than that I miss my Aussie friends and the life I created in Sydney over the past four months. Who knows how long I will be homesick for Australia. Maybe until I visit again. The past four months have been the most exciting, mind blowing 4 months of my life by a long shot. I will never forget this experience and the adventures I had.

“I love Sydney. She took me in and made me her own” – John Birminghan. Couldn’t have said it better, John. Couldn’t have said it better.
