Time almost always flies. I know! And each year only passes faster. I know this as well. But seriously, this month is just so out-of-the-blue I don't know what to do with myself. Where are all the blog posts from my nutso year in Spain? I just don't know on that one. My plan, though, is to do a kind of catch-up routine which will entail photos and stories from various trips and experiences while here, just quite a bit after the fact in some cases. We'll see how that goes.
For now, I'm here, trying to wrap my mind around the fact that it was NOT a couple weeks ago that I was freaking out about what to pack, if I had all my papers, and where I stood with my Spanish level. And it was NOT just yesterday that I adjusted to a seven-hour jump forward, tapas, and afternoon siestas.
And that said, why not go for Round 2. Right? Yep. I'll most likely be back in Spain for the coming school year. I feel good about it, too. It'll be tough to do another year away from everyone in the States, but I think I'm supposed to spend some more time over here before settling. And that's okay. I'm in no rush.
I must also say... June 16 is coming quickly. I can't wait. I don't want my life here to end, I'm not good at transitions, and although I love change, it often wears on my heart, especially in situations like this. I'm completely torn. I am sad to leave my fabulous roommates, friends, kiddos, and general life in Almería, but I am so ready to hug my parents, be within one or two time zones of old friends, watch baseball, eat janky Chinese/Mexican food, drive my car, and feel some general American love. Coming soon!
In the meantime, ITALY with Martha! And then Kay comes. YES. :)
