I’m sitting here in my empty bedroom in Santiago with my two suitcases staring at me in the face, waiting to leave for the airport. Today, the day I leave and the day that I have been counting down to for months, has finally arrived and I suddenly don’t want to go. My friends are going out tonight and my roommates will be here too and I suddenly want to stay a little longer to enjoy being with everyone. I made sure to say goodbye to as many people as I could, including my photocopy guy where I always get everything printed. And as much as I’ve missed Wisconsin this year, I know that next week I’ll be wondering why I’m not still in Santiago. The grass is always greener, I suppose.
To everyone who has been a part of my journey this year, in some way or another, I just want to give a heartfelt thanks and know that you all have a home with me in Wisconsin. I hope to see you all again, and even though we live an ocean apart, I know we’ll always have a bond and friends across the world. Thank you all for making this the best year of my life.
Muchas gracias a todos. Os querré para siempre, siempre estaráis en mi corazón <3
Ciao para ahora, Santiago.
