I just came back to hall about an hour ago and I am already feeling so homesick. Not new I guess, have been feeling this every week when I return to hall from home. Every week my dad helps me carry my stuff to my room and no one knows how much I hate to say “byebye papa”. It’s not that I dont enjoy hall life but I wish I had more time to spend with my parents, my brother.

Last friday when I went back home, I realised my dad had many strands of white hair and it appeared to have grown out all in just one week. It struck me hard that my dad’s getting older.. soon he will hit the big 5 and I do not want that day to come. But ageing never bothers him, as he says, “it’s all in the mind”. How I wish I could be as strong as my dad.

If I could, I will create something to prevent ageing. Time is such a scary thing. I want to be home so badly.
