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.
