My appreciation for time is not something new. From a young age my sister and I have always been fans of countdowns. We made countdowns for birthdays, vacations, Christmas, last day of school, first day of college and my most recent countdown was "Countdown to Puerto Rico" (look at the picture I included!). I will finally be home this Saturday! I have never wanted spring break to come so badly; one would think that as the years go by(having six years of experience living abroad) we can better handle missing home but at least for me it hasn't. Don't get me wrong I am loving my college experience, here at Penn but I still miss my deep blue ocean, my food, my accent, my people but most of all my family. So right now I am grateful to have the opportunity to go back because I know I am not the only one who longs for home, but I am definitely one of the few that has the chance to go back.Below I have included the link to one of my favorite songs by Kanny Garcia, called Mi Dueña (My Owner). I hope you enjoy it and sorry in advance if you get a bit nostalgic about your home, you too will be there soon enough. Maybe you can make a countdown!
With Love, L
