“So, are you ready to go home?
Someone alway asks this question, or else “Which place feels more like home to you?” In either case I am never quite sure how to answer. Is the person asking just trying to make small talk or do they really want me to take a deep dive, exploring with them all of the intricate and interconnected lines of thought that surround such a question? Beyond that, I’m not even sure I have an answer to the question myself!
Do I enjoy being stateside? Yes.
Do I miss my regular overseas life? Yes.
Does being stateside feel like home? Yes.
Does being overseas feel like home? Yes.
