The next few days are going to be crazy! I need to officially pack, run tons of last minute errands, and see and say good-bye to several people, including some of my oldest friends.
I am so worried I'm going to forget a small detail, or forget to pack something! Yes, I know I can buy almost anything over there, but I will still be upset if I forget something that is meaningful to me.
I keep trying to remember the old adage: "It's not good-bye, it's see you later". I realize that this sounds incredibly corny, but it's true! Most of my university friends are moving within three hours of the city in which we attended university (my hometown). I will hopefully be able to see almost everyone when I come home next summer. I expect the year will fly by, and with technology being so prominent in our everyday lives, I know I will be using Facebook, Skype, Twitter, FaceTime, WhatsApp, and Viber to keep in touch with my family and friends!
