People in my hometown have already welcomed the first snowfall of a new winter season, while leaves just started falling in Lille. For the first time in two months, today is probably the day when I feel homesick the most. I was searching all day for a flight just to go home.

Maybe you could tell me what I should do. Should I leave now? Should I just come back home now? Should I put a pause to this journey? And maybe it is time to come home.

What do you think?
