Departures

This is one of the busiest times of the year, and not just because of finals, moving, and summer plans. This is the time to say goodbye. All the seniors who have just graduated and are moving on with their lives, all the people going back home or to work or to grad school or to adventure...This is the time to say goodbye. We can't all just stay college students forever, after all.

Yesterday, my friend Nanna flew back to New York, after finishing up her optometry externship this semester. Tomorrow, Virginia is going to fly to Kenya for her mission trip. This weekend, Crystal will be flying back to Hong Kong, and then to USC next year. Irene will be going off to Ohio...

It just feels weird to see all these people leave, without knowing if I will ever see them again. Before, it would make me sad that they were leaving Berkeley. I really wished that they could stay and be with me, but this is unrealistic (not to mention possessive). I can only wish them the best, try my darndest to stay in touch, and hope to see them again in the future.

To everyone leaving Berkeley, possibly for the last time, I say goodbye, and thanks for everything.
