Coming back to Puerto Rico, I remembered what I missed and didn't miss about my home island.
I missed being able to walk outside without three layers of clothes.
I missed all the good food.
I missed the great music with lively rhythm.
I missed my family and friends.
I missed not getting static shocks dozens of times a day.
I didn't miss all the road traffic.
I didn't miss the sun in my eyes while driving.
I didn't miss feeling sticky all the time because of humidity.
I didn't miss the hectic drivers.
I didn't miss not having my own car.
I am happy to be here in Puerto Rico and I am happy to be studying in Minnesota. I guess the trade-offs are worth it both ways.
