All that remains...

I´m back from my trip to La República Chequia and now there isn´t a lot left on my to do list here. Most of my friends are gone or will be by the end of the week. My only obligations for the next nine days are trying to finish my stupid sculpture projects, heading to the beach, spin class, and packing. It really is a bizarre feeling. In fact, I´m starting to get nostalgic already...

I decided today after the gym that it was time to see what I am up against and begin the extreme task of packing my suitcases. I´ve managed, like always, to accumulate a massive amount of knick knacks, crafty things, yarn, paper, art projects exct. On top of normal things like shot glasses, clothes, shoes, and books. Lots and lots of books.

I would guess that I have roughly 10 pounds of recycled paper I am bringing back...dun nu nuuuuuuuuh!

Luckily, most of my clothes at this point are in such dismal shape there is really no point in dragging/hauling/pulling it back with me. I´m planning on making a large charitable donation to the dumpster aka good will outside my house.

I am excited to see my family and friends and come home but, at the same time I can also appreciate what an amazing time this has been. I couldn´t have asked or dreamed of a better study abroad experience and I really will miss it.
