It’s finally hit me, fittingly at the near halfway point; I’m here for four months. The honey moon phase has passed as the assessments rolled in one by one; first a midterm, then a few reflective papers. Given the time of the semester, it’s most undoubtably appropriate. Simultaneously, there’s a realization that my time abroad is already half-way over. Part of this gives way to concern as I realize the limited time I have left, as well as the applications I must complete with law school and next summer looming. Yet there’s excitement as well, compiling stories of my time abroad and the places I’ve visited. There’s still time to make new memories though; making these remaining weeks essential in their own right.
