It's just another day. 02/09/2012.



Well, I didn't post a blog yesterday, because I really didn't do anything but go grocery shopping and realize that groceries take all of my money! Today will probably be just as uneventful.

I'm really beginning to consider getting a cat. I miss my animals back home SO much, and I feel like having a cat would make me feel a little less lonely. I had a cat for 15 years who died on Mother's day 2011, and I was completely devastated. I think I'm finally ready to move on, and believe it would be good for me. I want to get it from the animal shelter though, because I feel like I'd be giving an animal a second chance by adopting from there.

Anyway, everything else seems to be going ok. I paid my rent yesterday, so that was quite a relief. S and I seem alright too. I know he's really busy with things as school, so I'm trying to give him some space by not texting him and such.

I was feeling a little home sick the other day. I was on the phone with my mom, and almost started to cry. I kind of miss being around everything I know. I'm sure it will get better soon.

If anyone has any advice on getting over being home sick, please, feel free to share! :(

Yeah, as friendly as your fish might be, he probably doesn't hug as well as a cat ... ;-)

My suggestions on homesickness would include talking to them as much as you can on the phone, Skyping, visits on holidays if it's not too far, stuff like that. But also, trying to develop new contacts and interests in your new locations. Just like with pets, not as any kind of "replacement", but as new experiences that have their own value.
