Homesick

I’ve been having a hard day. I think I’m homesick.

I miss my bed and my mom and my sister. I miss my family and my boyfriend. I miss waking up on the weekend and messaging my boyfriend to see what we should eat for lunch. I miss having dinner with my mom. I miss being lazy with my sister.

I don’t want to sound unappreciative of this trip. I’m happy to have this opportunity to see new things and to spend time with K and H.

But I’ve been feeling off all day. That uneasy feeling in my stomach just won’t go away.

Anyways…

H came home from school and we had leftover cold noodles. There was only a bit leftover from the other day, so H made us eggs.

I tried to take a nap while H started her homework, but I couldn’t get settled. Then H started getting sucky. Then K called to ask if we could meet at 2:30, but it was already 1:40ish – hardly enough time to get ready, get H ready, walk to the subway, and finally get to her building…especially with a sucky little girl. K called and talked to H and H cried and got even suckier.

We started walking to the station. H lagged behind. Did not help my mood, neither did the heat.

H finished her homework pages in the cafe and K surprised us by showing up. We (HEN) walked to the underground mall and did some shopping. I bought quite a few items. Something small for my mom too, but I’m still stumped as to what to get for her – that wouldn’t count as junk.

We’re having Korean BBQ tonight. K said its her favourite thing to eat out. Strikes me as a little ironic for a Japanese person to favor Korean BBQ, funny ironic not weird ironic.

Are you looking forward to the pictures of Korean BBQ as much as I’m looking forward to eating it?

  1. yes, I can’t wait to read the next post already! Korean bbq is a great social eating experience. but, I find the food all starts to taste the same after a while. and when you have too many people, by the time the first round of food is cooked you’ve only had one piece and have to wait again.
