there is something special about coming home...no matter where you've been or how long you've been away. it's comforting and time slows down. college is great fun, don't get me wrong, but it's always nice to take a time out and be completely lazy, eat good food and reconnect with home for a week. this break home was especially great because i brought home four of my international team mates to spend thanksgiving with my family and friends. it's nice to share my home town with them...they are like family to me and having a full house for once was fun. they fit right in like we've known each other all our lives.
we slept late and constantly grazed over a full kitchen of food. we stayed up enjoying each other's company, disconnected from the world...no agenda, no rush.
