Theme IV: Home, Introduction

At this point in the semester, you’ve probably been sick at least once. And without your old couch, your mother’s undivided attention, daytime soap operas and Maury — you’ve been left to fend for yourself on Seamless and in the medicine aisles of Duane Reade. Maybe more than once, you’ve wished people still had home answering machines so you could leave your dog a voicemail. Or maybe you don’t miss home at all: you’ve already changed your driver’s license to read New York and have a newfound calmness when crossing the street with one second left before the light turns green.

Your environment, whatever homesickness or home rejection you may feel, makes up who you are and who you’re becoming — and there’s always a good story in that.

Happy Reading!
