Is it possible to feel homesick for something that is not home... or even a place? I'm homesick for school. Not school. Just the back to school feeling in the air. I guess it's more a nostalgic feeling than a homesickness. I love shopping for school supplies. All the unsharpened pencils, 5-subject spiral notebooks. Backpacks. Lunch boxes. School clothes. I love it. And I miss it.
We live in a college town, and school starts in Thursday, so while I was shopping at Target on Saturday night it was amongst all the college students stocking their dorm rooms, and 18 year olds with mom or dad or the whole family wandering around wondering what they'd need to survive their first time living away from home. I love it.
