I’ve come to realize that even though I like the thought of being home. I’d rather stay at school.
Why? Because being back at home reminds me of awful times, mixed with some good. It reminds me of the year I went through crying my eyes out trying to get over my ex. It also reminds me of everything I did wrong here.
Being away from that at college is my little retreat. I have another life up there, away from my hometown and my high school. a place where there are only happy memories.
Even driving back home, and seeing familiar places in my town brought those memories and feelings back in an instant.
