I find it incredibly easy to just pack my stuff and move somewhere else where I don't know anyone and I instantly feel like it's home.
I've moved into a new place three weeks ago and it seems like I have lived here my whole life. I can't even believe that just three weeks ago I lived in a different city with different people, it seems like it was ages ago... then I think about where I lived before that, for a whole year until July this year and I literally cannot fathom that I ever lived there. It seems like it was two years ago. I can't imagine ever going back because it seems like it was at a completely different point in my life.
The first time I moved to uni in 2014 (from another country), I felt the same, after about two weeks I felt like that was my home and couldn't imagine ever living in my previous home that I lived in since I was 7! It seemed like a distant memory.
I don't understand why I feel like this, when I constantly think about how time flies and how January seems like it was only three months ago. The two feelings contradict each other
Is this a common thing? Everyone always seems to go on about homesickness and so on. I don't get it.
