What is it like to miss home

( )

Ever since I was younger, I've longed to travel and to do something different each day. Being a lover of adventure, where I grew up in it was an amazing place to learn, and then eventually keep coming back to as I grew up. But after I finished university, when you then have a choice to do whatever you wanted, to move to wherever you wanted, you get the itch to get out of there. I wanted somewhere I could find more work... Definitely sick of familiarity and I craved change.

You're probably wondering where I'm trying to go with this. Well, I can tell you that I've learnt a few things since moving to Singapore, my first year out from my degree, first year of full time work for myself, I've learnt that I always miss where I'm not. I never in a million years thought I would feel 'Homesick'. And now, here I am, missing the familiarity of walking down the street, weekend excursion to Watson's Bay and therapeutic coastal beach walks. It's not that I don't have an amazing family and support back home, because they are the ones I miss the most. I'm not a settler either, that probably has a bit to do with it. I don't like being in the same place for too long. If a surrounding starts getting familiar, then it becomes boring. It's such a funny concept when it's the best feeling ever jumping on a plane and heading off on your adventure. I'm just at a stage where I feel ready to move on to other things. But I'll guarantee when you ask me how I'm doing at the end of summer next year, I will tell you that I cannot wait to pack my bags and get out of my comfort zone. Right now, I'm more than happy and grateful to have the best of both worlds.

Fierce and Love,
