Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow…

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 IĀ won’t miss.

Good-Riddance Things:

The people who cram onto the subway train.

Really no reason to cram - there is another train.

The walking lights that don’t sync up.

I really don't like being stuck in the middle.

Crazy Traffic!

Traffic, traffic, and oh look - more traffic.

Traffic, traffic, and oh look – more traffic.

 

Miss-You-So-Much-Things:

Food in a bag, I will miss the convenience and the deliciousness.

Street Rice! Yum yum yum!

Street Rice! Yum yum yum!

Getting mail; for the comic relief of seeing all the mail laid out.

Mail day, pick up when you can!

Mail day, pick up when you can!

High end window retail therapy…yeah it was awesome.

Alexander McQueen store - one day I'll be able to buy a clutch...one day.

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!

I'm not one to talk about myself too much, however I'm a certified nerd and geek. While I used to work at a large company in the healthcare industry, I am now a Global MBA student at Case Western Reserve University. I'm also an avid traveller, reader, and a writer. Last but certainly not least, I look forward to all the challenges that come my way (most of the time anyway).
