I cannot tell you how nice it is, after 4 months of living out of my suitcase, to finally unpack and have a temporary home. I love traveling more than anything, including the way that you get used to being dirty. My clothes always smell like suitcase, and they are always wrinkled. You learn to wash your clothes in the shower and dry them on your bunk-bed. I can finally clean my clothes properly and hang them up! I have an amazing room where I actually feel safe to leave without locking my suitcase up. The way I can really tell I am starting to feel like it's home is that I am actually cooking again and have groceries in the fridge!
I have some amazing days sunbathing at the beach in "winter" here in the Gold Coast of Australia. I love watching these crazy people use the kite to do flips and surf super fast along the waves.
Homesickness is finally hitting me, 4 months into my trip. I miss my mommy and daddy so much it's unreal! Look how beautiful she is. She has the sweetest, most beautiful heart I've ever known in my entire life.
Because of my inability to continue watching my favorite shows from back home (Gossip Girl, Modern Family, Cougar Town, & Pretty Little Liars), I have finally caved and bought a book which is currently fulfilling my appetite for a dirty-good-murder-mystery-with-lipstick!
