Ah. I really hate this question. Because honestly, I am in the middle with this one.
Will I be sad to leave behind my awesome roommate, floor mates, and wonderful friends here?
Obviously yes. They are awesome, lovely, amazing, and beautiful people. I will be making an absurd amount of care packages when I get home so that they know that I miss them and love them like crazy.
What about finishing courses at AUB?
I loved them. So I’m sad to say masalama to them (well, okay, not that heart broken). I learned a lot and that was one of my goals so yay for that.
Will I be sad to leave behind tubs of Lebneh and jenbna and tabbulah and kebbeh and manousha and pita bread?
No amount of pita bread will soothe my aching heart of leaving behind such wonderful food items… (I mean, really, now I’m going to have to drive all over the California and Colorado state to find the best pita breads).
Will I be sad to leave behind the constructions and power outages?
Nope. Not even a little bit.
Am I excited about the summer?
You can’t even imagine. I get to visit both of my home towns (yup, one of those who has multiple ‘homes’) and travel around before I start my awesome internship. Plus, I get to learn more about webdesign and running wordpress thanks to my new job on campus next year. PLUS wonderful friends are coming into Colorado and I’m so stoked for that!
Am I excited about senior year of COLLEGE?
YES! I am unbelievably excited to be an RA next year. I love my co-RA to death, I’m going to be in an awesome dorm, I’m going to be taking great classes, ALL of my friends from study abroad will be back, and so much more. PLUS, there will be an additional member to the family and am so excited for that. Though thesis and job searching and fellowship applications are probably going to be the worst…
Really, I’m going from one awesome thing to another.
Sounds about right.
