Return to Normalcy

I've just realized how strange it is going to be to return to Baton Rouge.

I've gotten used to the lifestyle up here, and I feel like I've lived here forever. For a little while, I started questioning what ever made me think I would want to live here all the time, and I thought it was strange that anyone else does, but now I'm thinking it's just a mood thing. I've been spending alot of time in Queens- which feels a bit more like the suburbs, and I've been with people alot, which makes a difference, and I'm starting to realize I could get used to this.

I still miss pretty much everything about home (except for maybe Baton Rouge traffic- we need a subway...). But I've come to realize that no matter where I live, I'm going to miss somewhere else.

This is not to say I'm moving here when I graduate or anything. To tell you the truth, I've got a long list of places I want to move when I graduate, and I have no idea which one is going to come in at number one. What I'm saying is that it is going to be a strange switch. I've gotten adjusted to this hopping on the train, walking everywhere, and having a million places to go and things to do whenever I am bored stuff. To be cliche, it's life in the fast lane. Going home is going to require slamming on the brakes and slowing down.
