The Very Last Moment

June 10, 2010

It’s 7:30 in the morning on Thursday the 10 of June, 2010. I’m finished cleaning and packing and got absolutely no sleep last night, due to the way my brain is working at this point. Maybe that’s good, get me back into the swing of MN time! WHOA. Even saying that I get nervous excited anxious–all of the above!

I can’t believe it’s actually coming to an end. I’ve had such an amazing semester here, I don’t ever want to leave-but at the same time, I am dying to get back home and I cannot WAIT to see my loved ones.

This is just a short post, letting everyone know I’m on my way home TODAY. My parents are picking me up in Minneapolis at 5:55 p.m, and 3 of my besties are going to be there as well. :)  I fly Trondheim, to Oslo, to Iceland, to Minnapolis (cheapest route). Ingri is bringing me to the airport, and I’ve already said bye to all my other friends wahhhhh :(((

I cannot even express in words how much I have loved every second of my time here. I’ve been crying nonstop and I doubt that will stop when I get home or any time soon!  I’m leaving behind a lot of things in Norway; clothes, curtains, old food, shoes, books, etc. But mostly, I’m leaving behind half my heart.  This place has truly changed me and become even more a part of who I am than I could have ever imagined. <3

Okay, that’s all for now. Time to pack up the PC, put my boots on (heaviest shoes lol), load Ingri’s car up, and hope for the best!!

I’ll be writing more when I get back home, both on the two visit trips I had while here, as well as being back home and adjusting to ‘normal’ American life again.

Wish me luck with my flights!! I plan on sleeping as much as possible to get ready for a big weekend of welcoming home and a party just for me on Saturday :)

xoxo For the last time from Trondheim, Norway,

Klem fra Emma Kristin Volstad
