Home, Foreign Home

What does it mean when two short weeks spent somewhere else felt more like home than where I have lived for past four months?

Yes, I have lived in that other place for more eight long years before moving here, but the foreign sensation I had when I arrived back here still exists. It felt so distant; it felt like all the other places I went past driving here, but certainly not like a destination, where my home is.

If the thought of coming back home doesn't arouse joy in me, if going to work every morning doesn't excite me but rather makes my eye wide shut, am I in wrong place, wasting my precious time of youth?
