There is obviously no arguing the insanely memorable and fantastic time I have had in New Zealand, but as the date of my departure approaches, there is no denying my excitement about returning home. So many little, somewhat insignificant things that I have had no trouble living without, but that I miss about home and am excited about, keep popping into my head, so for fun, I’ve attached a little list:
Toilet seat covers, full-length mirrors, my own bathroom, my own bedroom for that matter, cell phones, painted toes and fingers, my practically unlimited wardrobe, not having to use an adapter whenever I want to plug something in, my surfboard, my bike, my car, salad bars, 100% whole wheat bread, redwoods, Pandora!! And Netflix! SUMMER all over again, and of course, friends, family and a whole lifetime of opportunities and decisions.
My final papers have been submitted and my final exams completed. I guess that means I’m done with college?!!?!?! We have been living it up for the last 36 hours since our last final exam, enjoying every last moment, and making some final memories to add to the books.
Only one more full day in this incredible country before I hit the skies!
