As I'm doing my project at the computer lab (which is pretty boring and uncomfortable - these chairs are definitely not meant to be sat in for hours on end), I am listening to my iPod and the BeeGees song, "Massachusetts" came on (yes, I have terrible taste in music). I was just reminded that, yes, I am graduating soon. Yes, I am going home soon. I'm homesick. After so many months on the road, I just want somewhere to rest my head for more than a few weeks at a time.
But where is home? I don't know, really. It's not in Boston, where I have friends, but nothing material to keep me there. It's not at my parents' house (though I know they would like it to be). It's not in San Jose, because, although that will soon be my home, I don't exactly have one yet. It's not in Vietnam, where I have spent the most time this year thus far. And it's certainly not in India, where I feel like I am just an interloper and am soon leaving. So, technically I have no home to go back to, but definitely looking forward to one. I even bought a bedspread here... for a queen-size bed (as one of my friends, Margaret, says - you're a true adult when you finally get a queen-size bed).
