Last Day & Departure

Lauren Tindal, Bocconi Exchance, Fall 2012

I’ve been putting off writing this post for a while now, because that would mean fully accepting that I’m leaving. It’s crazy to think that very soon, I will be waking up in my house, in Ohio, in America.

It’s bittersweet, leaving. Saying goodbye to new friends. Walking around, doing my favorite things and realizing how many good memoreis I’ve made here. Realizing that I may not be back here for a long time, or at all. Yet, at the same time, I can’t wait to be at home with my family for the holidays.

Milan has been the best four consecutive months of my life. This experience has made 2012 unforgettable, and it’s one that is indispensable to who I am, now. Milan, I think, now has a small piece of my heart with it. And this experience: I can’t imagine my life without it.
