Packing up!

Wednesday, May 15th, 2019

One of the most shocking things I’ve experienced in the US as an international student is how quickly they kick you out of the dorms after you finish finals. This is the third time I experience it, and I still don’t get used to it. The worst part is that it seems to be common practice, and the fact that they charge you significantly to stay additional nights is only more aggravating.

This year

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

I can’t even believe how fast this year has gone. I say that every year, but I swear each year goes faster and I think a lot of people would agree. I was just going through some pictures throughout the school year and I came across some from when I first moved in. I used those pictures in a previous blog. The only thought that came into my mind was how messy this place has become! It’s pretty crazy. But after all those pictures it pretty much went in order of the months and the things I did within those months. It’s one of those feelings that make you really happy, but at the same time sad. I won’t lie it’s not easy looking at pictures from months ago and knowing that next year I won’t have that because I’ll have a boyfriend in Canada and my friends up here while I’m at home because I really want to stay at home. It’s weird to see how you have ups and downs with your friends, but all it takes is one thing to revive that friendship. All in all, it’s hard to accept that people are leaving, I’ll have a relationship between two countries, and a lot of change is coming. I’d rather go through the couple of days where I’ll cry a lot, because at least I had it. Knowing that for the past three years I never thought I could have a great year because of the previous year and I was wrong helps a lot. Every year something has happened. Freshmen year Sam, Kayla, Sarah, and other friends became some of my close friends are STILL the same today. Sophomore year I met Brett and Addy and Rochelle. One became my best friend and roommate, one became my boyfriend, best friend, and basically a partial roommate (me at his house). This year I still have every single one of those aspects that I have gained throughout the years. So I’m sure next year has a lot in store. It will be hard at times without Brett, I won’t lie. But I have ways to get through because of all the other years I have been here.
