The feeling of home

  • I want to go home so badly after the first week of my sophomore year. I got a C in my first History essay, and I thought it was a disgrace to my parents' investment in my expensive education.
  • I want to go home when I saw the guy I had a huge crush on back in Junior year dating my best friend.
  • I also want to go home terribly when I see them happy together.
  • I want to go home when I got rejected at my Early Decision school back in my senior year.
  • I want to go home when I couldn't improve my standardized test score.
  • I want to go home when I feel like I have to do everything and try everything to succeed. The thoughts of an endless amount of work overwhelm me.
  • I want to go home when I'm handling my anxiety about friendships, about school all alone in a foreign country I'm studying in.
  • I want to go home when my bank account ran out of money but I'm hesitant to ask my parents.
  • I want to go home when I'm at work and I feel unproductive.
  • I want to go home when I feel less of myself and feel like everyone's better than me.
  • I want to go home when I feel reverse culture shock.
  • I want to go home when I make stupid mistakes at work.
  • I want to go home when I feel like work never ends.
  • I want to go home when I miss the friends I used to hang out with.
