Here I am, 6 in the morning staring into my computer screen wondering where the past few months have gone. Or perhaps where the last six hours have gone. I have class at 10 AM, then I head to the airport at 2 PM and on the plane at 5 PM to LA… followed by a plane to Hong Kong. A two day trip.
It sucks taking that long to get home, I don’t think many people understand that. Sorry let me rephrase that, I know lots of people here in Emerson that doesn’t understand what its like to go to college half where across the world. Wait, what am I saying? I sound like I’m complaining but I’m really not. It’s just the “I haven’t slept at all” mind talking.
This has been a good semester. I’ve really enjoyed being back in school. My classes have been great, and I don’t want to admit this but it was bittersweet after the last class of some of them. I have met great friends and now that I am leaving for Christmas, I can say that I will miss my friends here in Boston. I am really thankful for the friends I have met. My close friends here in Emerson are from all over the world and that to me, is so special. Some may say we have an “international clique”, maybe that’s true but hey, we get along, we click, we just happen to be good friends!
No, I have not gotten use to the weather. The snow is beautiful when I’m sitting inside looking out at the white weather but I still don’t like being out in it freezing my ears and nose off. I still want to brag that I live on the windiest corner of Boston. Boylston and Tremont. You try walking from Chinatown to Emerson! It’s crazy!
Anyhow, I am not looking forward to the long trip home but I will be home soon. I am anxious to see my family and friends. I can’t wait to eat all the food I’ve been craving, go to bars, clubs and drink legally, and to go to my home church!
