Six months ago, I moved to the city. It had always been my dream, so I finally followed my dream to the city.
As I sit here and watch the lights sparkle from the tall buildings standing statuesque in front of me, I watch the sun set and the cars speed by like like toys against the golden skyline. I think of my family and how much I miss them. My heart is pained and I sigh. Why did I ever think this would be a good idea, moving far away from home?
My hope was to make friends, possibly meet the right guy and never feel alone. But I feel more alone than I have ever felt in my life.
My mother's letter this morning has made my heart long to return home. Should I stay or should I go? Should I give up on my dream?
No, I'm staying here. It's going to get better. I just know.
