Planning My Return
I was talking to a few people about my plans for the rest of school and I was telling them how I was going to extend my undergraduate career just so I can have the opportunity to return to Cape Town for a semester. The first thing everyone always ask me is when did I decide. Every time they do I can't help but Smile as I say, "My first day here." Its hard to explain to my family my new goals in life, because I know they will never truly understand why a 3 week seminar could change all of my goals in life. The hardest part is letting go of everything I've ever known and all of my relationships, to pursue my new goal. Next spring semester I plan on coming to Study at UCT and making even more friends than I made this time. I'm still so appreciative and happy that I got the opportunity to learn more lessons in these three weeks than I've learned in my whole college career. So today as everyone else is sad as they say their goodbyes and farewells to Cape Town, I'm personally not sad at all. I'm excited to go home and see my family and friends and tell them about my wonderful experiences here and all of the new friends I've met, the kind of people I've seen, the customs I've been introduced to and the sacrifices I've learned to make while on my trip to Cape Town, but of course I don't have a reason to be sad or regretful, because for myself this isn't a goodbye or a farewell. Its more like a see you later because I know theres no way I could leave and not return to my wonderful new home.
