I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. – J. R. R. Tolkien
After three and a half months of shaky academics and amazing travel experiences, it’s time to go home. I can’t believe the time went by so quickly, but as I reflect sitting here in Pudong International Airport, I realize that I don’t regret this decision of mine in the slightest.
I’ve been able to experience so much during this past semester and I would’ve regretted it horribly if I had turned down the opportunity to pursue my graduate education. As always in my travels there are certain things that I will miss dearly and somethings that I won’t miss at all. Let’s start with the things I won’t miss.
The people who cram onto the subway train.
The walking lights that don’t sync up.
Food in a bag, I will miss the convenience and the deliciousness.
Getting mail; for the comic relief of seeing all the mail laid out.
High end window retail therapy…yeah it was awesome.
There are probably many many more things I could’ve said, but these were the top three of the moment. Well it’s 20 minutes until I board, so I will say Adieu for now!
Next post will be from the good ole USA.
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
