Hasta Luegito Mampujan


The last few days have been a flurry of activity: packing, cleaning, finishing, last minute paperwork, handing out over fifty photos of my face, saying see you later, and eating rice. It has been full of the last time (at least for a long time) I will:

So, you may ask, how do I feel? I am still processing all of that, and will be for a very long time. This has been the most difficult thing I have ever done. Part of me is full of an overwhelming sense of relief- I did it! And I don’t have to do it anymore! I’m ready for life to be a little bit easier. But I am also so thankful for the chance to live here and experience what I did. It was hard, but I am (hopefully) a better person for it, thanks to this little community. So Mampujan, this is not goodbye, this is see you later. Hasta luego!

(Now, back to packing!)
