Thoughts on Home

Sorry I wasn't in class yesterday y'all, I possibly have strep so it's been a fun couple of days. Anyway, Julie told me that the conversation on Exile and Pride centered around Home and Claire's discussion of it in the text. Home to me was always a fixed definition, I always took it very literally as the place where I lived. I understood when people said you can have a house but you might not have a home, but it never occured to me that home could be anywhere else. I have found home at Bryn Mawr on such a deeper level than I ever imagined. I have found home in the wonderful people I have come to know here and surround myself with. I have found home in myself in realizing who I am and the reassurance that this is the place that I need to be. Home is no longer a fixed address in Massachusetts, it is within myself and all around me here.
