Saying good-bye to friends and packing up is such a strange feeling. It's sad to leave. As the departure date is getting closer, I feel like there's so much more I want to do here. At the same time, there'll always be missed opportunities, no matter how long you stay in a place! My confidence is also wavering. Doubt is seeping in. What if I can't find a job back home? What if Mike and I break soon after I return? Will I regret my decision? One of my new colleagues who is in a long distance relationship as well would rather sacrifice her relationship with her boyfriend rather than miss the opportunity to make a good living in China for the next few years. I was a bit shocked. I'd never even considered doing that. But maybe I'm much more of a romantic than she is. Maybe good opportunities aren't always financial ones!
