I think this month with exams happening has made me realize that school this semester is almost over, but it hadn't really hit me that I am going really soon. Don't get me wrong I am definitely excited to go home and see Scott, my family, and my amazing friends, but leaving here is going to be tough. Tomorrow Val, who I have hung out with a ton while here, is going home and it just makes me realize that I too will be leaving soon. Val is luckily from South Dakota (which I never thought I would say someone living there is lucky) so I will get to see her while I'm home for sure. Megan, a girl on my floor, also went home today and thank goodness she'll be back to hang out but still to see her leave was rough because we got close throughout the semester.
