Can I Go Home Now?

I don't want to be here anymore.  I want to be at home.  I want to be hugging my mommy and daddy  and my sisters and my friends.  I want to be jumping around the room and running through the streets.  I want to be with Shaina and Trizzle and Chasity.  Not in the corner of a room in Nigeria, trying not to cry.

But of course, even if I was home, I couldn't do all those things.  Those people are in 5 different states.  But still, I want to be at home.  I want to be part of this.

Thank you to everyone who im'd with me and commented on the blog and kept engaged throughout the long night.  It made me feel closer to home.  It's only now that everyone's off celebrating that I feel apart.
