The End

Well here I am at the end of my exchange experience sitting in the airport.  Its such a bittersweet feeling.  The past weeks have just been finals, and spending as much time as I could with my friends who I may never see again.  Overall, I did well in my courses, which proves I can keep up with the Chinese haha.  I do wish i had done a bit more traveling while here, but I feel like I made the most of my time in Hong Kong.  I really feel a part of this city, and I've grown so attached to it.  Returning home will be a bigger shock than coming here I think.  There won't be anymore MTR rides, or catching mini-buses, and conversations always going on around me that I don't understand. And that view from the atrium at UST was still breathtaking till the last day.  Pictures can never convey the beauty of that view and the campus.

I feel like I've experienced more in these 4 months than I have in my entire lifetime.  It went by in the blink of an eye.  I have never felt more grateful to be able to do this, and I have no regrets about this experience. 

I will greatly miss the friends I have made here.  They are the most unique people I've ever met, and if I never get the chance to see them again, I will always remember them.  They are lifelong.

Although I am going back to the US, I feel that there is a part of me that is staying in Hong Kong.  Something tells me I will return someday, I don't know when. 

Well, this is pretty much the conclusion of this blog.  So thanks for reading, and i hope it was useful to anyone looking for a similar experience.  If you have any questions about Hong Kong or UST, feel free to contact me.
