Flo and I very rarely have those weird days on which we are kind of unsure, if this is really our life or if it is just another vacation. Today was one of those weird days. After helping our friend Scott move into his new home, we went to Whole Foods to grab a bite to eat. We sat on the Patio in the sun and ate and suddenly Flo said: “I just had the feeling that we are gonna fly back home to Germany soon and I am just here on vacation.” He actually spoke from my soul, because at that exact moment I felt exactly the same.
I think I have those days more often than he does. But for me it’s not only those moments that feel like vacation. I also have those what I call “thinking mistakes”. I for example think about something I wanna tell my parents about and will weirdly say to myself: “Don’t call them, you can just tell them when you get back home.” This happens to me every now and then and always leaves me kind of confused. I don’t know where those moments come from. Maybe, because I already adapted to my new surrounding so good that it is too fast for my brain? Or maybe it’s those moments where I miss my family and friends the most.
But no matter what it is, every time I have this feeling I am super relieved when I realize this is no vaction. It is my new life!
