The fear projects of most of my classmates were actually well done. I was honestly afraid I wasn’t going to be able to relate to any but there were honestly a few that I responded strongly to. The strongest one would have to be Laura’s. Her project was over the fact that she misses her hometown and that a lot of unfortunate events have happened there since she has been gone. The reason I responded so strongly to this is because I honestly miss my hometown. Mine is not as far as hers but it is enough that I miss my family and friends. I still love the idea of being and independent individual up in Indy all by myself but I feel like my connection with my hometown will never disintegrate. I had discussed how much I feel held back because of my parent’s overprotective natures but that does not mean I don’t miss them a ton. I feel like after that project discussion, my mom has slowed down on her texting me all the time. I have gotten a new roommate and have been busy with her so I am assuming my mother knows that and is understanding that I am too busy to really pay close attention to my phone.
That is not what this blog is about though. Laura made me realize how much I do miss my hometown and all the fun I have with my family and friends. From the Golden family cookouts with makeshift slip and slides to just having a night out with my high school best friends. As a result, I have decided that I will be going back there this summer. I didn’t get much time last summer and I missed out on so much. I went home for two weeks last year and that was it. Realizing how much I missed has impacted me in a way that I don’t want to miss a single thing! I also know how poor my grandpa’s health is getting because of his cigarette addiction. That being the case, I would like to spend more time with him and my grandma.
In all honesty, I must thank Laura for presenting her project so strongly and giving me yet another opportunity to fulfill everything that is important to me.
And this is the lovely bundle of close cousins last summer..Plus my sister there in the front. ^.^
