The hardest thing about this move so far hasn’t been working on my feet for endless hours a week and having one day off, or the extreme cold (it’s extreme for me, anyway), or even the whole moving thing. It’s being away from my family. I miss them so much it’s insane. I mean, I do like living on my own, but sometimes I just want to be in the comfort of home. It’s only been 5 months but I’m already planning on going home for Christmas – come hell or high water, I’m gonna find a way to get home for Christmas this year because I really cannot imagine going for longer than that to see my family.

I’m lucky we’re so close, but it really sucks to miss them! Especially since I recently realized that my sister is my most favorite person in the world – there isn’t a kind of love that I have for her that exists in me for anyone else right now. It’s part fierce protectiveness (I’m a Leo – loyal and protective of those I love!), part complete affection (especially when I think of her when she was young), and part just the way our relationship is – I can tease her endlessly and we both love it, and I know her better than anyone else. I want her to move to NYC and live with me for a few years at least, it sucks being apart.

And my grandma recently moved to Hong Kong as well from Cali, and I’ve always been close to her ever since I was little, with it probably stemming from the fact that everyone always said I looked like her when I was young. 🙂

Anyway. Guess I just want to say that although I love living in New York and love the opportunities that are opening up to me, it’s still hard being away from the fam, and I honestly cannot wait to see them again!

  1. I miss my family too…it’s hard being so far from loved ones. But it makes special occasions together way more fun and exciting than they used to be!

  2. i, too, am a leo (ohh, we bonded!) and understand that deep affection you can get for family of the heart or of blood…

    this will work out…
