It’s such a bittersweet departure. The next seven months will be the longest time I have ever been away from my family. I take comfort in the fact that I am my mother’s daughter. She taught me that I am strong enough to make it through whatever hardships come my way and if I ever get lonely (and she isn’t on Skype!) then I look to Orion in the sky and know my mom is watching the same constellation.
I chose this life, for the good moments and the bad, come tears or smiles, I will make it through.
That said Lord help the first person in my class who complains about their parents living two hours away.
To my fellow Southerners (and Americans): I’ll see ya’ll in July so stay safe!!
To my fellow Londoners: get ready, I’m coming back in town ;D
