I haven't even left home yet (will be doing so this Saturday evening) and I'm already feeling homesick!

For the first time in 7 years, I'm feeling this way about leaving home. I don't know why. The weather outside completely reflects my mood inside -- both are gloomy and pouring.

Have been trying to pack my stuff for last 2 days now -- don't even feel like touching the suitcase. Every time I open my almirah to take my clothes out, I get this funny feeling in the tummy.

Today morning finally, I started crying. I don't want to go. I don't know why. I have been away from home so many times before, and for even longer periods. But, never before did I behave like I was off on my very first day at school!

My dad started laughing at me, saying I was behaving like I was going to my "sasuraal". Incidentally, I also never understood (until today that is) as to why the Indian brides cried so much when they left their parents after getting married.

I haven't got married... and I'm only going for 4 months... and my dad has said he'll come and visit... but I still can't stop the tears.
