I've really been enjoying taking photos outside amongst all the fall foliage in Ohio lately. With being a senior and in my last year of college, I don't know if I'll even be in Ohio next year for the fall. It's a really scary thought, but one that excites me more than scares me. Ohio has been the state I call home and although I know that it will always be there, it's strange to me to think of having a "new" home.
The past four years have been really confusing for me because I've not felt like I really belong to any place. I've been bopping around from my home town, to Kent, to Italy, to Europe, to New York. To be honest, I'm not a big travel person and it's left me feeling quite uncertain about where home is for me at this point in my life. When I go back to my hometown, although my family still lives there it's strange because I feel more like a visitor than a member. My kiddish childhood bedroom feels like an odd, nostalgic hotel room with dust collecting over all my items and at every corner I see some new development that wasn't there the last time I visited. Even in Kent, although this is where I technically reside most of my time, it doesn't quite feel like home either. I know it's so semi permanent because it's not a 'forever home,' so I try not to get too attached.
I'm not sure where I'll end up after I graduate in seven months. I'm obviously shooting so hard for New York, but you never know what could happen. I just hope wherever I am that I can stay there for a little while and make it a place that feels like home to me finally. x
With much love, Lauren.
