My first day of work back from vacation. I am still a bit sad. Very sad actually. I miss Russia now. It's funny how my attitude change in just a week. I went from being extremely stressed out from how much I did not want to go to Russia, to missing it and people there so much it almost hurts. Oh well, I know it'll pass. Time goes by and feelings fade, but I am actually very glad that I feel this way. It is important to stay connected with your family and childhood friends, no matter how far apart life has thrown you.
