This post is dedicated to the people I am leaving behind for a few months, my amazing family, my close friends, and my perfectly supportive boyfriend, William. In the wise words of Winnie-the-Pooh:
How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
I truly am beyond lucky. As I sit here and write, I am weighed down by sadness at leaving, yet excited for my new adventures.
It’s a dangerous business going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.
— J.R.R. Tolkien
I hope I have a few moments that whisk me off my feet, that take my breath away, and that teach me new things about the world I live in. I am ready for my adventure!
