As my departure creeps closer and closer, I’ve been saying farewell to various people and places. I visit, and I say goodbye. I’m saying goodbye to places, maybe so that they can be folded into little memories and tucked away for the days that I miss the physical comforts of home. I’ll miss these places for different reasons, whether for the memories, the friendships, or even just the fondness I have for them. Even more than missing places, I’ll miss the people that make them home. I will miss my family, and the friends that may as well be family, but I’m glad that technology will allow us to stay connected so easily.
