It’s been a while eh ? I got so wrapped up in final exams and final papers as well as the upcoming holidays and of course working. I was able to take off a whole week from work to head home and spend time with my family. I haven’t been home since the summer time so this was sort of a must for me to make this trip. I spent the day with my immediate family, my parents, grandparents, auntie and my cousin. So this is my first year spending holidays with my family where I am finally over 21 and can hang with the big dogs. I usually get the “Tiylaa go to your room, grown folk are talking” and i would troop to my room and play my piano.
It’s so refreshing being home and being around family considering I have been going through life and learning things on my own. I have no responsibilites, dont have to wake up early, and dont have to make my own food. I am living the life. It makes me think and reminisce about simpler times. When i was a kid/teen and my biggest worry was my peers accepting me and me being apart of the cool kids. I would love to go back and tell my self that the issues I had were so minimalistic compared to challenges you will be faced with in the future. And it’s so crazy to think that I will be saying and thinking the same exact thing in about 10 years when I am in my career, married and have a family of my own. Cherish and appreciate the holiday season because it brings families back together. No matter how busy people are in their lives they put all of that on hold to come together and be surrounded by their loved ones.
