I am literally counting the days until I go back home. I'm planning to spend three months there. A lot of people have told me that three months is a lot. I DO NOT CARE (at least now I don't). I need this. I spent THREE YEARS away from home. I miss hugging my parents, my sister, and my cousins. I miss the food. I miss the beach. I definitely DO NOT miss my hometown, but that is a whole other issue. I can't wait to see my friends in Tunis, to hang out with them in the medina, while drinking real tea and real lemonade!! Until then, the only voices that accompany me in my solitude are Beyonce s in the morning, and HBO's Girls' between 12PM and 3AM. I thank them.
