home is where the heart is.

back then, encountering this quote, the the thing that comes in mind is the movie done by Natalie Portman. i haven't actually got the chance in time to ever watch that movie. but it has managed to create this recall. it was only recently when i came to know what this simple phrase meant.

yesterday, January 15, 2006, i took the ACET for the second time. i was back in the past. i was back in the grounds where i lived most of my life. none of it seemed new. there was a feeling of relief and a soft bliss; i was home. i walked pass some of my previous classrooms. i saw no changes except for the banners hung on the windows, the reminders on the board and some clutter. i was taken back to a year ago where i was busy learning trigonometry, arriving from the exhausting trip from TD... there was bittersweet sensation.

as i sat in a classroom and took my test, i can't help but take quick glimpses of the surroundings. i saw the trees, the plants, the landscape that i've once looked at and admired a year back. it was the scenery which rid me of all problems and bothers i had then. for a time there, i forgot i was ever gone from that place. it was only when i realized i was taking the test that i knew it has been a long time.

leaving was such pain. it broke my heart to leave that place i considered my second home. a home away from home. however, there is a spark of hope in me. i might be coming back. thinking again, i am coming back!

home is where my heart is.
