I had a dream during this long nap this afternoon. I seldom take long naps and I seldom have dreams that I can remember. I do have one bitter-sweet one today. I dreamt about Beijing and my big family and many friends and many places that I missed so much.
I almost cried when I had the weekly FaceTime with mom. I really missed them so much. But after checking the calendar, I almost feel desperate. It’s not even for three months. I have another 8 months to endure.
I don’t think my life here is lonely or boring. I have a group of loving friends. We can hang together and chat for 8 hours. That definitely means something. My life is a bit monotonous comparing with Beijing I have to admit, but I am starting to love about the slow pace of St. Louis, or say Webster Grooves.
But homesick still stroke me this afternoon out of blue and it was a hard one. I think I might need time to digest and rearrange myself.
