Goodbyes & Realizations

March 16, 2012

Mine & Kat’s first picture together (along with our friend Molly)

So, my roommate, Kat, just left to go back to the U.S. Her program is over and now I’m all alone in our little room. Along with her, my friend Kortney and a whole group of people who came with me in January are going home. And I don’t want them to leave!

And while this makes me sad to see them go, it also makes me realize how fast time has gone by. I remember when Kat and I first met in Madrid we were talking about our programs and that even though hers ended in March it was still “so far away.” Now it’s here and it seems like Madrid was a few weeks ago.

So far, I’ve been here for two and a half months and I cannot believe it. February flew by (1 month ago I was in Sevilla, and classes had just started). Oh wait, it’s also already the middle of March… AHHHHHHHHHH!!!

And while I haven’t regretted any of the things I’ve done here, there is still so much more that I want to do and accomplish — namely make some more Spanish friends so I can practice speaking more. Oh, and passing my classes would be nice, too.

And with that being said, I am making a promise to myself — here on this blog so it’s public and I can hold myself accountable to it — to seize even more opportunities, take more risks, make myself even more uncomfortable, and work my butt off in my classes.

And lastly, goodbye Winter 1! We’ve had some good times together, & I will miss you guys! Here’s some pictures of some memories we’ve shared. Oh! and if any of you are ever in LA (like I told Kat) dime (that’s dee-meh for all you English speakers out there & it means “tell me”, not “dime” as in the coin).
