Hard to say goodbye

Today has been an emotional rollercoaster to say the least. It started around 7 am when I got up to go over my fairy tales notebook just one more time before my final, which made me want to cry a little bit, but I was expecting that. Halfway through the final, a little friendly thought popped into my head, and it went something along the lines of this...

la la la Voltaire, and 18th centry french philospher la la la oh snap! I get new yarn from Lucy today! That's way better than Voltaire! I wonder if it's bright red or a deep red.... Oh wait, that's a bad thing! That's right, because I won't see Nadia and Lucy again for a really long time, which sucks even worse than this final. Wow. Today is really the last day.

I'm really excited because I get to go home now, or actually to Ireland where I'll be meeting the family and the g-parents on Saturday morning, then I can let my brain relax and be a tourist for a while, and then come home and see everyone I've been missing. But I'm also really sad to be leaving my new friends behind. Endings are always bittersweet, because sometimes you leave so much behind you wonder if it's really worth moving on. And right now I just don't know yet. I guess we never really do know when it comes to things like moving. We can only hope that it will be all right in the end.
