home at last

Finally, after 6 days of vacation, we’re home again. Can’t say I didn’t enjoy it, even though I felt very anxious practically the whole time because I was at an unfamiliar place. Some of the people I’ve interacted with during our stay at my mother’s hometown were nice, though, so that definitely helped.


So my 6-day break went like this:

A day of visiting my mother’s family home (and touring around some places) and meeting some relatives and other people

A day at the beach with the relatives and some people I don’t know

A day of sight seeing on the way home

Three days of staying at a relative’s house doing absolutely nothing.

And six days of unnecessary worrying about some things I can’t control (a.k.a. my anxiety tagging along on our vacation)



I consumed about 1 1/3 rolls of film, so I’m excited about how the pictures would turn out.

I shot around 200 pictures using a digital point-and-shoot camera (and while it has manual mode, I haven’t used it much because people were telling me to hurry up.) but they’re mediocre. 

I learned how to make those lame loom bands! I also learned that they’re not lame. Somewhat. So that’s a new thing I learned this June.

I talked to some people, primarily our relatives.

I learned to enjoy nature more. And somewhat thank God (if He exists) for it.


That’s about it, I guess. I may not have learned that much about myself and my existence, but what I have learned about the world around me pretty much makes up for it.

  1. If you have Netflix and aren’t easily offended by nudity, language or general obscene and ridiculous things… I recommend watching “An Idiot Abroad” – it makes me feel better about my moodiness when it comes to traveling because while I love to travel and explore – I also hate it. Plus… it’s just a fun show. BTW Read your post on comments so fyi – no need to comment – but if you watch it – lemme know what you think! (Season 1 is the Seven Wonders of the World and Season 2 is “Things To Do Before You Die”) 🙂
