Back in the USA

I'm back in the states, visiting my folks for the first time in almost a year and a half.

Everything seems smaller to me for some reason. I thought my old bedroom was much bigger than this, but it looks like a shoe box to me now. The bathtub looks half the size I remember it as. Even my parents seem smaller, if that's possible. Maybe I got bigger? Or maybe I'm just severely jet lagged and having distorted perceptions. My brain is also getting tripped up on having to go full-on English, which is something I didn't expect – words like danke, entschuldigung and tschüss have become my new defaults and I have to stop and think before I talk.

I'm going to sleep sooooo well tonight.
