I will be honest with you, when I think of home I don’t just think of my home where I sleep and spend time with my family. Home to me is more than one place. Home is where you feel safe, where you feel like you can be yourself. To me home is also school, I’ve spent many, many hours on campus and I love it there. When school is on session there is no day that I go when I don’t smile. It’s a beautiful campus, big yet small and the people are friendly. The hallways are usually warm in the sense that they feel like home, the library is peaceful and the gardens bring out beauty in every angle. The animals add a wild touch to a warm felt place, and the people that make up the campus make it vibrant and lively. My school is my home.

There are a couple of places where I like to go when I like to escape from my daily routines. These are the places that make me ponder about many things. These are the places with beautiful views, some are deserted yet they have something to them that makes me feel happy. One is a hill where there stands a tree, an old tree big and bright. The journey to the top is never easy but the view is breathtaking and captivating. Sitting by it makes me feel safe, accomplished. Another place is where I go watch movies, I usually like to go alone, its been a place where I’ve grown so much. A movie to me is a work of art in itself. When watching a movie and you think about your life and how you can relate and how you can change many a thing you know a movie has been well executed. I’ve watched many movies in this place, usually the same room and I love it there. I like how it is far from everything I know yet so close to visit whenever I need to. These places are home.

Home. Home is where the people that I love are, where they can smile and feel free. Home is where we can share memories that can last years. Home is where we feel that inner warmth in our hearts and when we go to one of our many homes over our lifetime we know as soon as we get there, we know where home is.

Smile, feel the warmth in your heart.
