Flowers are blooming and people are sneezing. Spring has officially hit and all of us can tell that the end of the semester is coming quickly. Due dates for papers are approaching and we have many more weekends of traveling behind us than lie ahead. Day by day we feel the bittersweet emotions that come from the thought of leaving this magical place. The majority of us are excited to head home soon and see our families, but we all struggle to imagine leaving as well. No matter whether the desire to leave is there or not, each one of us has something we will miss and we will leave a piece of ourselves here when we leave.
There are some parts of being at Harlaxton that we will definitely miss the most:
Experiencing the cultural differences
Trying the cuisine while traveling
Gazing in awe at the churches of Europe
Appreciating that love is alive and well all over the world
Those incredible sunsets....
Exploring Grantham and all the culture it has to offer us right here at home
Participating in school activities and events with our classmates each week (in a super casual setting, of course)
Waking up to this view each day ( aka feeling blessed beyond belief)
