November 24, 2007 at 11:13 PMDecember is only one week away and my mind is left going - where did the last 3 months go? How have I survived cooking for myself, doing my own grocery shopping, commuting on the bus etc. for 3 months?
I've made it. I can't believe one term is already over and that soon I'll be going home for Christmas to visit old friends and relatives I haven't seen since the summer months. I'm sad to soon be leaving the big city and all my amazing friends here. I have never felt as welcomed into a new setting as I have felt studying music here at UBC. Before I was always the music freak and now there's a little clan of us and the people are terrific! Warm, friendly, devoted. My friends come to my concerts and in turn I go to there's whenever possible and there is a lot of laughter and cheer (and complaining about theory and history!) in the hallways between classes. The lifestyle is busy, I didn't realise how busy it would be, but the only think I would change is orchestra rehearsal on Tuesday nights. It should be at 4 instead of 6:30 so that I can get home before 10:30pm. And I might also change the weather a bit.... Snow would be nice. yes. I miss snow.
I love UBC, I love Vancouver. I don't know how I will ever tear myself away from this gorgeous city that's made me feel welcome and as though I belong. I'm definitely in different waters then back home and so far, these waters seem pretty warm!
The good news: you get to go back! (As did I!) I'm so happy for you that you've had a great semester. It's so much fun to read your comments here. And remember, when you're back home, away from your friends, there's always US, here at v.com! : )
