Thoughts on being away
I've spent a lot of time out of the country this year. When I tell people that I've taken a year off to travel and learn, they often say, "Careful, you might never want to go back to school." I can't really imagine why. All the time I've been away, I've enjoyed myself for sure, but I've never stopped missing home. Nowhere I've been has struck me like, "Hey, I want to live here forever," and certainly not like, "Hey, I think I'll stay here right now and not go home." And school? I couldn't imagine wandering around without a purpose for years and years. I can't wait to get back to school.
