A Long Awaited Farewell

My mother informed me that I neglected to do a farewell blog. So here it is. I am obviously back in the good ole US of A. The journey home was not what I would call "smooth." It is a long story and I don't wish to re-live it... ever. I had a great birthday (the big 21) and a wonderful Christmas, though both were mostly uneventful. I was boring on New Year's Eve and have remained boring (and slightly bored) since my siblings started school again. Basically, I'm no fun now that I'm not in Scotland anymore!

But since this is my goodbye, I guess I should do the rounds. I would just like to say that my four and a half months in Scotland were some of the best of my entire life. I met some incredible people who I think will be lifelong friends. I can't believe how quickly it all went by! Anyone who is considering going abroad should definitely do it. I feel that my time in Scotland aided in some self discovery - not that it was in any way intentional. I think I grew up... not a lot, but a little bit. I'm so grateful for the entire experience and for the people who made everyday amazing.

So farewell Scotland. Its not farewell forever but for a little while. I will miss you and all the wonderment you have. And farewell to my very few blog readers. Thank you for taking an interest even though I know most of you felt obligated because you are family.
