I’ve been back in London catching up with people, seeing family and friends, my 3 week old niece – who already thinks night-time is for staying awake! – working in the London office, strangely the same and different all at the same time. I’ve been having a blast. We’ve been out doing something every night since I’ve been here I think, it hasn’t stopped 🙂
And all the while I’ve been missing my friends back in NYC. My apartment. The plans that are being made, the parties and random nights out that I’ve been missing. It took me a little while to realise that home is now two places. And no matter which one I’m in I’ll always feel like I’m missing out in the other place as friends do fun and wonderful things.
So NYC is now my home, fact. And a huge chunk of making that is the friends I’ve been lucky enough to find in my first year there. And as for the missing out situation? No solution, just have to keep dealing with the missing out and realising how lucky I am to have such amazing friends in both places I call home.
