In about an hour I will begin my final final (I’ve always loved saying that…I’m such a nerd).  I cannot believe that after four years of being in the community college system (starting in high school my sophomore year) I am finally leaving.  Admittedly there have been some really good memories; I met a lot of interesting people and had many wonderful teachers, but I’m ready to move on.  It looks like I know where I’ll be living next semester and I’m really excited.  After getting a taste of independence in Japan, it was tough moving back in with my parents.  I love being near my family but I feel like such a freeloader and I’m looking forward to living on my own again.  Life never ceases to be interesting.
