    Home..... I haven't been home in three

    and a half months. I'm tired, I want to unpack my suitcase and hang my clothes in a closet. I want my tea cup and my things surrounding me. I want my view from my back patio and I want my cat curled up in my lap. I want my normal, boring, day to day life back. Some would love...

    I am 7,528 miles away from my home country.

    I am enjoying the experience, living in a new country, loving the Texans and the big city but I miss my friends and family and my old country hometown.

    Ruby Slippers

    For me the place I really think of home is not my current house, but rather the home I grew up in. I know I can't go back but sometimes I wish I had a pair of ruby slippers because "there's no place like home.... there's no place like home."

    No Place Like Home

    Homesick

    When people are homesick, what do they miss? Do they miss the people they left behind or the place itself?For me, it's both. Hopeless pangs of longing to return to my hometown of Ottawa, Canada, a feeling of desperation to see the faces and hear the voices of people I've left...
