Not that I am not having a great time in Ireland, but I honestly can not wait to go home for Christmas.

It is great to be here in Ireland. I met wonderful people, did a lot of shopping, had a great time with the people I met, and I even think I am falling in love… But I can not deny how much I miss home, I miss my family so much, my mom, dad, brothers, sister and everyone else. I just need to go home and see them, because this is very hard for me, being away from them for so long.

It might not seem like a very long time, because it has only been 3 months, but it is for me, because I have never been away from my family for more than 2 weeks. So as much as I am enjoying this, being here in Ireland and living my independent life, it is very hard for me to be away from my family for this long.

Of course, I miss everyone back home, but there are 2 people that I just can not wait to see them again,my mother and my baby cousin. Leaving them was the hardest thing I ever had to do in my entire life, and knowing that I will be seeing them again in 10 days just makes me cry of happiness. My baby cousin is the most beautiful baby on this planet. When she smiles to me, all of my problems simply just fade away… yes, she is that gorgeous. I have been with her since the day she was born, I was there when she was first born at the hospital, when she got her first haircut, when she took her first steps, and even when she said her first word, so being away from her is honestly killing me, I am actually tearing up as I write these words, it is hard not being there next to her, because I was always there, and it is hard to know that I am missing out on so much…

But I am staying happy, I am looking at the happy side, I am going to be there in 10 days, and I will get to see her again, and everyone else that I have missed so much.

What I am trying to say is, even though family can be annoying sometimes, you might feel like you hate your brother, and you want to kill your sister, believe me, there is nothing like family, It is the most important thing in your life, and you are nothing without the love of your mother, the warmth of your father, and the casual fights with your siblings.

Appreciate your family, cherish every moment you spend with them, because one day you will find yourself having to let go and living on your own, and you are going to look back at those days you spent with your family, so make sure a smile will cover your face when you do.
