getting ready to go home

There’s around 9 days until I go home. 9 days.

There are some things that I miss about home and that makes me count down the days until I go home.. but it also means 9 days until I leave Seoul, and 9 days until I leave all the friends that I made here while on exchange. It’s really bittersweet, since I’m going home to my family and work and everything that makes Vancouver home to me, but I just spent 4 months with these people and we’re parting, just like that.

I said for a long time that I’m probably the only one who’s looking forward to going home (I still probably am) but… I now know that I’ll be missing Seoul and exchange a lot more than I thought I would.

I’ve started packing already, I’ve filled my larger suitcase up already, but I also went shopping today and I’m kind of worried about how I’m going to get home. I’m already throwing out some of the stuff I brought here, and my carryon is already full of snacks for my friends – meaning I can’t buy snacks for myself… which is not necessarily a bad thing.

I really hope I’ll be able to get home, and I really hope that I’ll be able to use these last 9 days in Seoul wisely – even if I have to get through finals first!
