Day 12, Sunday: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life…)
I miss my friends and I miss my freedom! These are the two things that come instantly to mind.
Friends, because since I have started living at home full-time instead of dorming or living in the city, it’s been a lot harder to see them as often as I would like. Since I graduated, it has also been harder inventing excuses as to why I need to stay in the city (To go out and have fun and party and drink and stuff obviously) because obviously, I’m no longer “studying for finals” anymore =/
Freedom, again due to the fact that living at home with strict, overprotective, and conservative-leaning parents is difficult. Not only do I find it hard to accept and value a lot of their beliefs (I find them to be racist and sexist, honestly), but I also find it hard to get along with them for prolonged periods of time because our opinions on pretty much everything clash. I hate having to lie and make up stories to go about hanging out with my friends, because honestly, if I want to go to dinner with a few friends, I shouldn’t have to beg and plead for their permission first as a 22-year-old.
