|Late night thoughts on home
||[Nov. 27th, 2006|12:23 am]
Talking with Sarah Tate Chambers and Lis Shaum tonight in the car on the way to Goshen, we decided our answer to eternal question:
"During college, where is home?"
You've got the home you grew up in, which will always be familiar and feel like home.
And then you've got college, which, at least for me, feels very much like home. I've got friends here that I care about. I've got a room. I have food.
So which is "home" and which is the other place? When you say "I'm going home," where are you referring to?
I've decided that:
When saying "I'm going home," you are always referring to the place your parents still wish you'd call once in a while. If referring to returning to college, then say "I'm going home to college."
When you're at college, saying "I'm going home" generally means back to the college. If referring to returning to the place where your embarrassing baby pictures are, say "I'm going home to [insert state/city/country here]."
I think this should make things a bit easier.
Enough of my late-night rambling.
Go in peace.
