CONTACT RYE D. 3350 The time for us exchange students to go home


The time for us exchange students to go home is nearly upon us. And a few from our district
have already left. We are one big international family and it breaks my heart every time
someone leaves.

The topic for this report is how to prepare to go home. I will start by saying that no matter
how much you prepare it will never be enough. This is us, packing up our lives and moving
back to the life we once lived, though it wasn't that long ago, it seems like an eternity.
We have to leave our friends and family and go back to our friends and family. We are all from different parts of the world and realistically some of us might never see each other again.
This to me is the saddest part and the part I'm trying so hard to ignore.

Now to prepare to go home. Physically I will need to fit all of the things I've acquired over the 10 months I've been here into 3 suitcases and a backpack. Now this might seem easy,
but I've gotten a lot of stuff. My family has given me things, I've gotten stuff from school,
my friends have given me things and I have bought some memories of my own.
This will be hard but nothing will compare to the mental toll leaving is going to take.
You can try and mentally prepare yourself, and count down the days until the last one.
But even then it might not feel real. I am trying to mentally prepare myself to leave but
I don't think I will ever be fully prepared. However, I have another month in this amazing
country so I'm going to cherish everyday.
