How's it going?
but I'm imagining it will mostly be haxball-based.
which isnt home
and then i'm coming back after 3 days.
I'm still going there though it'll be ok i guess. I need some sellotape for presents though never forget.
Quite looking forwward to it tbh.
Does anyone else find it a bit odd when grown-ups call their parents house/where they grew up 'home'?
I call it home. Just home, innit. Maybe if I had partner, kids etc that'd be home. But this don't feel like home ATM. Home is home.
Even now I don't miss it, even though when I was a miserable teenager desperate to get away people would always go 'oooh, you'll miss it when you do'. fuck off do I. If my parents didn't live there I'd probably never go back.
Home to me is where me and the thinly veiled live. Somewhere I've chosen (sort of) and built a life for myself.
But yeah, fair dos to you.
I've lived in about 10 towns and cities around the world since I last lived with my parents. To varying degrees I've felt part of the community, had friends there, cared about the local environment and maybe sometimes it felt like 'my home' albeit temporarily.
But where I grew up has my parents, all my family and the best memories. When people ask me where I'm from (usually in regard to my accent) that's where I say. Maybe one day I'll have my own roots in a place to call that home but in the absence of anything else I'm not going to call where I currently live 'home'.
