Now that I have been home for a few weeks, I can fully understand all my emotions related to leaving Italy and returning to America. After 4 months in the beautiful city, I was feeling quite at home. I simply did not want to leave. I was having too much fun exploring and learning different things every day. I had just gotten a full dose of friends and family from thanksgiving break, and I truly felt like I could have stayed in Rome for another 4 months. Although there were things I missed about America, like hanging out with my friends, family, my dog, going to Chipotle and Target, I learned to live without them.
