Saying good-bye

Just a few minutes ago, the last of my friends left after spending the evening at my parents’ place, cooking dinner together, swimming and talking a lot. In a way, it felt much like any other get-together this summer or at any point in my life, but the important exception is that tomorrow I’ll leave for Taiwan and that I therefore won’t see any of my friends here for a year. Perhaps this ought to make it very different, but it doesn’t really. I know that they’ll be here when I return again and that it’s not a big problem to keep in touch using the internet.

Going back to Taiwan also means that I’ll regain a lot of people I’ve been missing a lot during the summer, Vanessa obviously being tho most important, but certainly not the only one. Starting on a new education programme of course also means that I’ll meet lots of new people and I don’t doubt I’ll make a lot of new friends. Barring the slight problem of finding somewhere nice to live, I’m very optimistic about the coming year. To the best of my abilities, I’ll keep you updated on what’s going on, but I suppose there might be a gap from tomorrow and until I’ve secured an apartment contract and a stable internet connection.

Today, only practical matters remain to be fixed. I need to buy another Rubik’s cube and some vitamins, I need to pack everything and I need to say some final good-byes. Tomorrow, I’ll post a more detailed description of my itinerary, but since I leave at nine in the morning, there won’t be time to do much more. See you then!
