Strange feeling…

September 7, 2007

I just have a strange feeling.
I dont know really why.
It was soo good to come back to Melbourne after our trip. Not that the trip was any bad – it couldn’t have been better – but just to be back in Melbourne, my “home” for the last almost 8 month was just such a good feeling.
I was back home.
Not “real” home.
Not Germany
Not Hessdorf
Just Melbourne

I walked with Jochen through the city two days after we arrived from Sydney and everything just seemed to be so familiar. The street names, restaurants, the Yarra, Crown Casino and the fire show, the cafes and shops, even the people.
I caught up with almost everyone in the last days and it was as if I had never been away. I had dinner with Ish at “Spicey noodles” on La Trobe, the place we had dinner the day I moved into our appartment and so many more times after that. I’ve been to the Siemens office in Bayswater three times to say good bye to everyone or just to hang around and distract everybody from work – kind of.

Now it’s Friday night, I’m lying on the floor of my room at Steph’s house where I lived for the last 2 weeks (You’re the best, Steph! 🙂 ) and I try to get organised.
Try to sort all my stuff and pack it into a suitcase and a backpack.
Try to put the live of 8 month into two pieces of cotton and zippers.
Try to get ready to leave this beautiful country.

Maybe I’m just nervous
Nervous about how all the things have changed
Nervous about how my family and friends have changed
Nervous about how I have changed

Also, I think I’m just not ready to go yet…
