Winding down.

Tonight I said farewell to Flan. She is one of my good friends and her and I journeyed through the whole process of becoming YES scholars together. And by some miracle both got accepted. Tomorrow she is headed off to Indonesia with many of the other YES kids.I'm going to miss that chick, but I couldn't be more excited for her. I've been waiting to tell her I'll see you in DC July 2010 almost all summer. Haha, Tonight I got to!! To think the day we have been hoping for since February 1st (when we first began the application process) is finally coming is the most surreal feeling...
I think Its finally starting to hit that new life is just around the corner. Things here are winding down as the world I'm part of now begins to plans events and activities I won't be here to take part in. Its almost painful in a sense. But in a totally unexpected way. I'm not sad because I'm going to be missing these activities (I'll be doing something much more enriching). It's painful because I have to sit on my hands waiting for these next weeks to pass, while my head is already over a thousand miles overseas.I don't think I'm freaking out, although I've been told otherwise. But freaking out or not, I have two and half weeks left in the states. Until then, all I can do is keep plowing my way through my long list of to dos, and hold my loved ones tighter,tighter, tighter.
Güle Güle, Amber
