They say that home is where your heart is. Well, my home is in four distant places. I had a dream the other night that I was back in the town where I grew up and was about to start a new job. Jason and I were living with my parents but I was so excited to be near them again. I was definitely sad to wake up. But I also really love the community we have here (if you couldn’t tell) and the thought of leaving it behind is really not a pleasant one. But we also really want to live closer to our families and it’s so tough. Even if we moved to where my parents are we’d still be an hour and a half from Jason’s family, and vice versa. Really, California just needs to shrink a little. And Japan needs to come closer too.
