As much as I want to be excited for Hanukkah to start Saturday night, I’m feeling sad about it. I’m going to be spending the entire holiday away from my parents and little sister for the first time. I’ve never spent Hanukkah away from home, and it hurts. The entire holiday means family and togetherness to me, and I’m not going to get that this year. I’ll see my sister at UTD for the last two nights, but we won’t be with the rest of our family.
My friends keep talking about how they’re so happy to see their family for Christmas and can’t wait to spend the holiday with them, and I’m stuck here away from my family. I can’t even get my dad nor sister a gift in time this year (I already got one for my mom and little sister) after losing my wallet and having to cancel my cards.
I love being around my friends and loved getting to celebrate our Festofus with each other, it was such an awesome day, but I’m going to be missing my favorite part: lighting candles with my family. I’m talking with a friend to see if we can go to her brother’s apartment and light them, but I’m gonna miss the togetherness with my family with the glow of candles getting brighter each night.
I’m actually starting to miss home—to miss Austin.
It’s really awesome when you get to meet a friend from Tumblr and hang out with them for the first time almost all day along with your other friends.
And now that I’ve had tea, I’m sleeeeepy. Great day was great, and I can’t believe I did this much on just four and a half hours of sleep.
First off, I’m damn lucky for being able to say that this situation I’m in is weird.
There is someone I could very easily start dating. BUT, I don’t want to. As much as I love being in a relationship, I don’t find him as a romantic interest and it would really upset one of my friends who had a little brief not-hookup with him.
I haven’t been posting much about my life on Tumblr, but I feel that this is something worth posting, mostly for personal reasons of saying it. Yep.
