I'm Homesick

Posted by pearl1003 at 1:41 AM

I've never imagined myself crying my eyes out just because I'm missing some people close to my heart. I didn't expect that it is hard to work while at the back of your mind, you are dying to see and be with these people and spend some more time with them.

It's been 2 years since I left Philippines to work abroad. Although I went back home twice already to enjoy my annual vacation leave, the feeling of being "at home" here is never the same when you're really there in your own room, reading a good book, and spending the rest of the day without thinking about how to finish your deadlines as quickly as you can.

It's easy to leave Doha right now just to be with my old happy and easy life back home, but I need to earn for a better future. If being homesick will stop me from getting my dreams come to reality, then maybe I should just try a bit harder to forget the "homesickness" and just face the fact that I can't just quit my job right now. One day, I'll feel better. One day, every pain will just fade away. And when the time comes to head back home, there's nothing more wonderful than seeing myself inside my purple room again, reading my favorite Harry Potter book, enjoying the presence of my dogs playing beside me on my bed, and hearing the voices of my nieces calling my name.
