It turns out you are also way too busy to do anything except go to work, go to class, study, and sleep. And watch Scandal and Downton Abbey whenever you have a spare two hours, because time must be made for Olivia Pope and Lady Mary. I'd sacrifice a shower too for another hour with Walter White. RIP Breaking Bad. Today being Columbus Day is the only reason I have a spare five minutes to sit down and write this post.
It also turns out I miss more things about California. Namely, the absence of intersections that have 7 cross-streets and the consistency of the weather. Weather reports are actually accurate in California. I know. Weird. Also, I miss the locks on the gas pumps. It's the little things, people.
It turns out the grass is always greener on the other side, obviously. Since I complained about the consistency of the weather when I lived there. Consistency = monotony. Consistency also = convenience when getting dressed every day.
It turns out home doesn't really feel like home too much after you've been gone so long.
But it also turns out it's pretty fun playing tourist in a place you know how to get around.
And it turns out fall in New England is just as magical as I remember.
