What's in a home?

A lot of things have been going on, most of them fun and good, but I'm not going to mention them because I want to avoid making this a "let me recap my day!" blog.

Even though today is the fifth day that I've been in D.C., and I worked two days, it still feels as though I'll be going home in a couple of days. I obviously know that's not true, especially seeing as how I've worked two days (therefore already different from my past visits), but I can't get it through to my inner thought processes. I think it's probably similar to re-programming a computer.

For example, E and T's bro is visiting this weekend, and he's returning to his school in Boston on Tuesday. I almost said to him "oh, we should hang out when I get back!" I'd love to hang out with him, but when I was thinking that, I was thinking in terms of "sooner" as opposed to "later."

A part of this feeling probably stems from me not having an apartment yet. For as long as I'm sleeping on E, C-note and T's sofa, I'll still feel like I'm down here on an extended vacation. They are so welcoming - and they are absolutely amazing - but it's a bit of an awkward situation. It will be cool when I live somewhere else, and we can hang out, and most likely have sleepovers, but I won't be taking advantage of their hospitality. I'll be able to give, in addition to my non-stop taking.

I saw an apartment yesterday in Chinatown and I loved it. Loved it. LOVED IT. The location is perfect, right on the line I need for work. Annnd it's only two stops from E & C-note. Not to be a downer, but I probably won't get it, just because that would be too perfect. The two people looking for a roommate seem to be really nice - a girl and a guy, both 23. I met with them yesterday, and they both appear to be (I keep saying "seem" and "appear to be" and like language because I don't know them for sure) responsible, friendly and good roommates.

So, we'll see. Who knows, maybe even I after move into my mysterious new place, I still won't feel at home. Maybe the only place I'll feel at home at is in Braintree, Massachusetts.

And I'm definitely okay with that.

I have lived several different places since I moved out of my parents house all those years ago, and none of them feel like home except for my parent's house. Weird.
