|Bettina, Lisa and I|
I head back to the States on the 23rd, only two weeks to go! Right now its still a big mix of emotions. A few weeks ago I was just all sad to be leaving soon. I really love it here and have had the best five months of my life. The people here are really great and I will be really sad to leave them. Recently, I have started to feel a little excited to go home. It will be really nice to see all of my family again. I think we will have a welcome home/birthday party which I am really looking forward to. It sounds weird to say, but this life style that I have been living here can get exhausting. Its been like a big race, trying to do as much as you can before time runs out. I have done a lot here though there is still so much that I want to see and do but I guess it gives me an excuse to come back to Europe! I know that I will be back some day because I want to visit all the friends that I have made and I hope that some people will come visit me in Wisconsin because it is a really nice place to see in the summer.
