How was this past summer? Honestly, I don't remember much of it. All I can say is that I feel pretty good about myself, so it must have been fairly nice. :)

is where the heart is. I always thought that saying was so stupid. I mean, how can home be where the heart is? Home is always the place you can go to to feel comfort and secure. I guess I thought like that because my home has been the same place for the past 20 years or so. But, coming back home, I realized my idea of how home should be, has changed. It isn't where I am--it's where the heart is. Hah, it has taken me so long to realize this. Anyway, I know I am fickle. Eventually, my mindset will change. But, for now, this is how I feel. It's just, I tend not to understand why my thoughts are so inconsistent. I forget that it's okay to think otherwise all the time--yes, I am hypocritical, but it's okay.

The drive was long, but not as long as the plane ride to Korea. But, just as boring. This long car ride was worth the break I need. Anyway, I always thought of myself as the type of person who can't take naps in the presence of other people, like in people's cars, rooms, any place that's not my home, but I've learned the hard way (while I was in Korea) that I can fall asleep when tired enough. Long story short, I fell asleep for the longest time and I'm pretty sure that Veronica's dad thinks I sleep a lot; at one point he was like, "Is your friend asleep again?" Ahhhhmygawwwddddd, so embarrassing!

On the other hand, thanks for the ride and dinner. :)
