Peace out Milano its been realMilan, Spring 2010
Well here we are. My last night in Milan is over and I leave for the airport in approximately seven hours. I should probably be sleeping but here I am blogging instead. I must say, last week I was ready to leave. Maybe it was just because I had so much work to do but I was pretty ready to go. Ready to be done with school work and see all my family and friends. But now? Now, I must say I am really sad to be leaving. I’ve had an amazing semester and every other day I was asking myself: How is this my life? However, at the same time I was becoming accustomed to living it. Tonight we had our IES farewell dinner and it finally hit me this was truly over. It was a great night and a great end to this experience but, at the same time, it was really sad. I had to say goodbye to the people I’ve gone through so much with and say goodbye to Milan. January, and the beginning of the semester seem so far away but I also can’t believe these five months are over so soon. I have such mixed feelings about all of this but, in the end, I suppose all I can do is embrace the memories. I can very honestly say that study abroad has been one of the best experiences of my life and I would do it again in a heartbeat. It was truly once in a lifetime, and my advice to anyone debating whether or not to go abroad? Do it.
So, arrivederci Milano and ciao amici! Time to get some sleep and head back to the States, but I’m missing this already.
