Here's the honest thing of it...

WHOROSCOPE: You're in pursuit of excitement and fresh adventure. Try a different path to get your life going in a whole new direction. Daring sports and physical activities get your blood racing and stimulate your mind, too.

Translation: You're boring and you could use some exercise. Why not get back on that skateboard and sprain something?

Right-eo, Whoroscope.

Alright. So I have the opportunity to go home over Thanksgiving. We're not going to have a traditional dinner, and apparently my grandma and my aunt will be there. I suppose it's a good chance to remove myself from this environment and to calm down and get my head straight again. No cost for room & board, no sitting alone on the holiday. I don't know if I can think of something more lonely and depressing than that.

On the other hand, I hate going home. Since I don't like going, part of me expects it to be throughly un-relaxing. I don't want 8 million of my old friends calling and demanding to hang out. I don't want to feel guilty about not having enough time to see everyone. I don't want to hear the words "you should come home more often." Honestly, there are some people I just don't want to see. There are a few I do, and there are even a few I genuinely miss, but seeing how they are always breaks my heart. I know I should spend the time with my family. I just haven't yet decided if I will.

So riddle me this, guys. Considering the present circumstances and the known qualifications for being a decent human being...

You don't need to tell your 8 million old friends that you are home - they'll never be the wiser! And everyone has things their family says to them that they hate to hear (my mom is notorious for this) but it's the holidays, so grace them with your presence! :D

Well, my old friends are tricky. They call before I even come home, and my mom generallyi spills the beans... and then they just show up.

Like I said... tricky. But I've had years of experience with training my family members not to say stupid things. ;) Heh.

I'd go home and if I didn't want to see my friends, I wouldn't tell them I was home. Then again, if you run into them somewhere, you can just say that you're only home for a few days and you don't really have time to hang out.

For me, a little white lie like that is not too bad - I don't feel guilty lying because sometimes, you just need to not be with your friends; I do, anyway :)

Yeah. And it's not like I don't like them, and hate being around them... I just... need some "me" time.

I always end up feeling like crap though, but I'm home now anyway so I guess I'll just haev to deal with whatever happens.

I hate Thanksgiving & I'm not close to my family (geographically as well as emotionally) so I'm staying home myself. I'd just rather pretend it's another day.

BUT if you can easily get home & there are people who miss you then go for it. Without all the hassle of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner it could be fun.

I'm not horribly close to my family either (geographically or emotionally)... but I think I just needed to get out of town. *sigh*
