As the semester draws to a close, I’ve come to the conclusion that there are a few things too crazy to be true.
- I’m leaving Europe in 25 days (last time I checked I had like 100 days left, so what the heck??)
- I’m going to be in America in 28 days (everything will be in USD not NOK and I’m not sure how I feel about that quite yet)
- I’m going to be a junior in college next year (I don’t want to be an adult)
- None of these things listed above can be true, right? (they must be false)
I am pumped to head home and see my loved ones, especially since Ciara is graduating, but at the exact same time, not being able to get a $30 flight to Amsterdam is too weird for me. I’ve gotten used to a mindset of travel, travel, and a little bit more travel, so being stationary at home for an entire summer is going to take some getting used to. Looking at flights in the United States, too, is driving me bonkers. $300 to travel across the country?? Why?
I’m getting pretty bummed out thinking that the days of walking down the streets of Moss are coming to a close, and way too quickly. I won’t be living on the coast anymore, and I’ve grown to love seeing the water every day. There’s also still so much more to be explored, here in Norway, and in the rest of Europe! I don’t know how people do it, honestly. I’ve only been able to explore eleven countries (which is still a lot), but honestly none of them thoroughly enough.
Studying abroad is one of the best things you can do to grow as a person, but when it’s time to come home, there are going to be about a million mixed feelings.
I’m just hoping I can get a lot of free food from all the graduation parties I’ll be crashing.
