Last Day in Spain

And so it ends. This is my LAST day in Spain and it is so hard to believe! It’s weird, but leaving Spain now feels very similar to how leaving the United States did in August. It is so surreal how fast the time went by and now I’m a little bit in denial that I will be back in the homeland in less than 24 hours. I couldn’t be more excited to see my family and friends but at the same time it is going to be another big change adjusting to life in the States after I have experienced so many things this semester. Not to mention everything that has changed at school since I left it! I am at the point where I am definitely ready to go home and get back to “normal” life, I just have a different definition of that now. And as ready as I am, there will always be a huge part of me that wishes I could just be in two places at once!

Overall, I just feel incredibly lucky to have been given the opportunity to come over here and live and learn for so long, with so many great things at my disposal. I think when I look back at this for years to come, these four months will stand out as a defining moment in not only my education but also my growing-up process. I am seeing this as an end to a semester, but the beginning of many more adventures to come. Thank you to all who were a part of making it happen! (Especially the bank of Phillips that has now over-compensated for the stupidity of the bank-that-will-not-be-named)

Also I wrote an article for the Washington College sport’s newsletter that basically sums up my semester and how it affected my life as a student athlete. If anyone is interested in reading it, you can find it here:

Hasta luego España!
