With Thanksgiving approaching and not being home or even in the US, I have spent the last few days feeling a little homesick. It seems a little silly to be missing home when I am currently sitting on a Thai beach enjoying a glass of wine and watching a beautiful sunset over the water. I mean, how can I be complaining about this?
But after being gone for 5 weeks so far with another 4 to go, I have been feeling nostalgic for ridiculous evenings out with my friends, long phone calls with my mom, my bed, and the Portland food scene (yes the food here has been good but keeping up on my Portland food reading makes me excited about all the places to eat when I get back). I also have been missing having a daily routine that includes working out and eating healthy on occasion, as well as not living out of a suitcase.
