when you try to be deep but it doesn't work too well...
The overall cheery tone fills me with warmth, peace and delight and a little bit nostalgia. Your choice of language and rhythm effectively creates a relaxing(and slightly nostalgic) mood and vividly portrays the beauty of ordinary life.
My favourite line is "Home is a personal time-capsule buried in the depths of your mind to be uncovered twenty years from now, causing you to fall into a little bubble of reminiscence."
The idea behind this line is really interesting and thought-provoking. I've never thought of "home" as "a personal time-capsule" before. Also, your language use is impressive.
It'd be nice if you can describe your home through at least one more sense. The first two paragraphs are centred on smells and sounds respectively, so maybe you can add one more that focuses on sights? Perhaps about the different colours found in your house? This way, the content will be richer and the transition line of "Home isn't necessarily found in the senses, though" will be more powerful.
Moreover, I'd love to read a deeper and more thought-provoking ending. Maybe elaborate on how home shapes us?
In all, I really love this piece! I'm studying abroad and reading it makes me a bit homesick :) Please keep up your amazing work, and I can't wait to read more from you!
