This semester went by so fast & in a little over one month I will be reunited with my close friends at the Green Mountain College graduation ceremony! Being in a new place and forming close relationships over the semester has been an incredible experience and I have learned and continue to learn so much from all the people in Arizona that I have been working with, talking with, and meeting!
Leaving the East Coast and Green Mountain College meant that I was leaving behind very close relationships and keeping in touch with my friends while I am thousands of miles away has been important for me. I have found that phone calls are my favorite form of communication to keep in touch! It is so nice hearing from my friends and hearing about all the exciting things that are going on with them. While it takes time and energy to keep in touch I think it is important to put in the work and living thousands of miles away from those that you love isn’t easy!
Leaving Arizona in a month is going to be very bittersweet and it will be hard to leave…but returning to Green Mountain just in time to see my friends graduate and spending time with my friends who are staying for graduation will be so nice & exactly what I need!
