I don't think there is any other word for this relationship other than family.... I felt really emotional tonight saying good bye to everyone, this has been a great journey.... I don't really have the words to express how meaningful everyone is to me and how I value them in my life. but I do... It really hit me that, this program is over today when I returned my bike. and yeah.. I really feel like a home with everyone, my Dutch friends, my host and my American friends...
I did not realized how everyone in my program had an impact in my life until tonight when I started to say goodbye... and I did not realized on how I have impact other people's lives.
Well I am going to bed, tomorrow I start a new adventure. Madrid... for 4 days and Paris for 4 days.... let's see how this goes. After that, it's time to head home... one thing I know is life will not be the same again once I return home. I won't have my old UConn life anymore, it will be a different UConn life, since this experience has changed me a lot. it changed who I am and attitudes.
