I cannot express the joy I experience every time I think about flying back home to New Jersey. I have not been home since July, the longest I’ve ever spent away from home, and I am more than excited to see my family.
How does the saying go? You don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone? This is absolutely true. I miss my mom’s home cooked meals, having laundry done for me, my dad warming up my car for me on cold mornings…
Speaking about cars, I had the great fortune on having my car break down on my way to class a few weeks ago. It was my transmission, but luckily it did not have to be replaced. That made me miss home even more, because having a car break down is no fun, and back home I would just call my dad and he would come and save the day.
Did I mention how excited I am to go home?
One more thing, I definitely miss not having to pump my own gas. New Jersey is just awesome like that.
