My mother arrived today for the holidays, and my apartment feels like a different place already! Messier, but more home-like. She brought a suitcase stuffed with clothing, gadgets, and miscellaneous items, including a frozen hunk of beef! Not sure about the customs regulations on that one, but it arrived untouched, still mostly frozen, and all proof has since been eaten 🙂 I’m looking forward to showing her what my life in medical school/Budapest has been like, since she left on the first day of the semester and didn’t get to meet any of the people who have become such a big part of it.
On that note, a shoutout to fellow group member and reader, Clare!
ETA: Hours into her visit, my mom fixed the flickering desk lamp that I’ve ignored dealing with, and it took all of 30 seconds. I need life skills, stat.
