I always dreamed of leaving this place. Moving away to make new friends and a new start with the one I love. Seeing new places, new adventures, and a different life for my children. Then I fell in love with him, the guy who never ever imagined leaving. The one who wants our kids to grow up doing what he did, and to show me all the things that makes this place special. He made me realize that sometimes you have to stay to understand the beauty in a place you’ve always hated.

Me: Can I stay home tomorrow?
Mom: Why?
Me: The MAMA awards starts in the morning please I have to-


20 Things You’ll Love If You Like Staying Home On The Weekends

Let’s be real for a second: staying home on the weekend is the best. Sure, being a social butterfly has its perks, but being a homebody is so relaxing and cozy. You can sit back and chill, knowing that you don’t have to run from one social obligation to another. Birthday parties, theme parties, dinners… the exhausting weekend list of activities goes on and on. You’re just not into that stuff. To you, there’s nothing like some good quality time with your TV, laptop, and bed (AKA the best friends a girl could have). You may not have a reputation as a party girl, but you’re doing you, which is the most important thing.

Sometimes its easier to go out than to stay home and lay on your couch, because when you stay home and lay on your couch and drink chamomile tea, you have to face the facts. That there are people in this world that you cannot have, but that you still want. That even though your want is selective, when you do select to want that person it feels like you have wanted them forever and will want them forever. This, therein lies the difficulty.

The Homebody

 I didn’t want to engage
So I stayed home all day,
And was perfectly content
In my realm.

I painted, I cooked,
I dreamt, read a book.
And with tea in my hand
And little to do,
I just sat by the window,
Enjoying the view. 

They thought it was weird,
And waste of a day,
To never set foot out the door.

 But I learned valuable things from
One day locked in my home, more
Than in 22 years of existence.
The world is a difficult place.
