thank you all for your sympathies!  just about to sleep my last sleep in my dorm here (lol, for three hours).  just said goodbye (or, see you later) to my best friend here (who has become one of my best friends in general) and um it was basically like four hours of cuddling and an hour of tears.  I’m so sad to be going, but so, so happy about all the stuff I’ve done and places I’ve been and people I’ve gotten close to.

now just gotta make it through a long day of travel and then I’ll see you on the flipside :)
