Over Goodbyes

Okay so I have to say that this goodbye thing is wearing thin. I have got to know so many great people over the last year and about half of them are about to go home.

My family has meet so many interesting people from over seas, who come as visitors or exchange students, that I have come to know how hard it is to keep intouch. Everyone gets so busy once back at home that emails become fewer and fewer. Having said that, I must say the emails that make it through are even more cherished and special.

These people (and I am included) who get so busy will always be there with open minds and homes. I have been lucky to visit a few places and catch up with people after such a long time of little communication. Is is nice to fall straight back into friendships where they left off.

So it isn't that crazy to say "see you" to someone who is going home. That see you will sit in limbo until you really do see each other again. It is nice to know that you have friends all over the world. It always makes me feel close to friends and family.

Yep, it's nice to think the people you shared good times with still remember you.
You will regret saying these things when I am mooching around your house in Melbourne!
