The goodbyes are really hard, but then again, I knew they would be. There were people that I knew I wasn't going to see before I left, and I felt that my card was sufficient enough to at least inform them of my departure. But it is the other people, my two good friends, my aunts/uncles/cousins, my neighbor family and of course my family.
I've been crying more than I had hoped. If you saw me, you would wonder if I was being exiled against my will. I know that this is what I am supposed to do, and I know I will be happy so why do I tear up and cry when I hug my friends? I guess it is because I was fortunate enough to find a handful of people that I really like here and I am moving to where I don't know anyone...and to give that up is hard. It is always hard to say goodbye to people you care about.
