Prompt – Where were you last night when 2015 turned into 2016? Is it where you wanted to be?
At midnight, I was sitting in my Aunt’s house with my father states away from home. I was here simply with him, my younger cousin, and 3 animals.
Although I love this state and the family I have down here, It is not where I wanted to be when it hit midnight.
These last two weeks I have wanted to go back home. For me, that means going back to the city about 30 minutes from my mother’s house where I’m attending college. It means going back to where my new partner is that I am missing terribly right now and spending all my time with them until classes begin again.
The reason I want to go back there instead of being down here for new years is simple. Home to me isn’t the house I lived in for 5 years with my mother, step-father, and sister; It’s the people I choose to surround myself with at the college I chose.
Is everyone there perfect? of course not, but I wouldn’t have it any other way then spending these next years with them until I have to leave.
