A couple of days ago, while I was walking back to my dorm room, I realized something. I don't think I've ever stopped myself from doing something so usual, like walking, to hear my surroundings. It was weird though because instead of hearing nature like I did back in Kansas, I heard cars and other unnatural noises. Although I should have expected that, I had forgotten how far I've come. It was one of those moments where I' had to make sure I was really there. Haha. The point of my story was to point out how drastically life changes with time and how the smallest observations like noises could be so precious.

_____________ When I am homesick or just in the mood for a song that soothes me, I like to listen to songs like this one:
"And I know that I am never alone, and I know that my heart is my home, every missing piece of me, I can find in the melody." -Melody by Kate Earl
