I was suppose to go home this past weekend for my aunt's surprise birthday party. I had it all planned out that I would fly home on thursday, get the hair, nails, eyebrows n feet done, and be ready to have some fun with the fam (something that hasn't been done in a very long time). I already had a dress and shoes for the event. I WAS READY!!! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it.
My genius of a boss decided to do schedules 3 wks in advance and I had to work this wknd, so I had to kiss my plans goodbye. At first I was mad because I really wanted to go home but then I'm like whatever I'll see everyone next time. I figured it would be the same family members that I see all the time, just with some real good food and some nice haitian music (something I haven't experienced in a while). Then we had the house party so I was all good and didn't really care I didn't go.
So yesterday I call my dad, aunt and sister to find out how the party went. Boy did they all make me jealous. Turns out all my family from my dad's side came out for this shindig. People traveled to NY from Florida, Boston, Canada, and whereever else just to come and surprise my aunt. (And my a** couldn't come from ATL ugh). I herd it was a really nice event and all my cousins were there having fun and yet again I was missing.
This is the bad part about going far away to school. I always seem to miss out on the events that are going on back at home either because I have to work or I don't have the money to buy a plane ticket. I must've missed out on like 5 fiestas because I wasn't in town and each time everyone is asking my dad and sister, Where's Shay? That's only family functions, let's not even get into how many parties I've missed out with friends. I have to find out what people had on, who was acting a fool, was there any drama, and everyother thing a nosy person like myself would like to know. I mean I haven't seen a majority of my family in eons and here comes a big event where everyone comes out and I'm missing. So nerve racking.
This is one of the reasons why I want to move back home after graduation. I'm tired of missing out on family and friend events all because I'm far away. I just hate missing out and not being apart of the memories and the pictures and stuff.
On a brighter note, I WILL BE COMING BACK HOME IN 2 DAYS!!!! lol
