I've been in Texas for 7 months, and whenever I check the time, I still convert it back to PST and wonder what everyone back home is doing. It's 1:30 am here, 11:30 pm there. Who's asleep, who's awake? Which of my friends would I be with right now? Would I be at home in my room, at a friend's house, at Quickly? Would I be driving down Beach Blvd., or on the 10, or the 60? Would I be alone?
I tell myself I can do this, and I can go even farther, but some days are harder than others. Some days I miss too much, others not at all. Tonight is one of the hard ones.
