Ugh, this week has been a bit rough. For the first time since we arrived I have been feeling pretty homesick. It’s the beginning of summer and all my friends are getting ready for fun in the sun. I can’t even remember the last time I saw the sun. Many of my friends are graduating and I wish I was in Knoxville to see them walk. I also can’t believe it’s been a year since I graduated and I miss college. Significant things are going on with my family as well that I wish I was around for. And my brother is coming home this month, and it has been over a year since I have seen him. I’m only writing this post because this is also a part of the expat experience and it’s just as real as all the exciting times. Just know that I miss you all at home!
