I AM STILL IN THE US

Posted on July 11th, 2010 by Lindo Lindo

No, I am not, sadly.

I cannot believe—even at this moment of typing—that I really am home. Sigh.

It has almost been a month since my arrival here in the Philippines. I still remember the excited faces of my family when they saw me in the airport (although they had to wait for another two hours because my flight was delayed). Anyhow, I had my celebrity moment. My paparazzi-like siblings were taking pictures of me while I was having a hard time maneuvering the gigantic cart that carries my two overstuffed luggage. We made a scene… seriously. :P

Hugs and kisses… hugs and kisses… non-stop hugs and kisses. I guess they really missed me a lot. I did too. I love my family!

The world you live in moves on even without you. Yes, it is true, however you realized that nothing much has really changed… except for yourself. There are so many things I have learned from my US experience. So many that even words cannot describe how much I have improved as an individual. I do not even know how to continue this entry because I am at a loss for words.

My six months of sojourn in the US has really ended. Sigh. I am in my denial stage, undeniably. Even so, I will say this loud and proud:

THANK YOU US of A. Till we meet again! <3

PS
My original flight was cancelled. The airline had to rebook me for the following day.
It was unfortunate, but it was okay. They upgraded it to business class. Lucky!

Somehow we were treated like babies… except that our strollers can’t be pushed! lol

Lindo Lindo- say it twice!

MY DEEPEST GRATITUDE TO InternationalStudent.Com YOU GUYS ROCK!
