As cliche as the phrase is, every hello always ends in goodbye. Did you know that goodbye means I’ll never see you again? So never say goodbye, always say bye.
Today was my last day with my supervisor, Hala, because she doesn’t work on Fridays, and tomorrow is my last day at Hayman. Oh how quickly time passes, it literally felt like yesterday when I was nervously looking out the bus window on my commute home, to make sure that I got on the correct bus going in the right direction. It’s weird to say, but I actually feel like Sydney is home. Some days I’m excited for California, but other days I just want to stay in Sydney forever. Today’s one of those days, I’m going to miss this place like no other. I’m not excited to say more goodbyes to my Hayman coworkers, I’m probably never seeing them ever again; my goodbye to Hala was hard enough.
But hey, I’ve got to keep moving around in life to learn more about the world I live in right? Sticking in one place for too long never helped anyone. Less than two weeks till I’m in sunny California.
Every time I watch this movie, I feel a new emotion. This time it felt like an accumulation of them all. Tonight I also realized how unprepared I am to go back to SJ, even slightly scared. But on the bright side, I had some bomb noodles for lunch today.
It’s nearly 3am, and it’s now the third night in a row I’ve stayed up till this late. I’m exhausted. But I just spent the last hour and a half sitting in McDonalds, or “Mackas” as Australians like to call it, sharing some large fries and talking about God to John, a homeless man I met. He told me that he knows that he’s never going to win the lotto because he’s been blessed beyond anything already, what a guy. He also gave me a little book about Jesus to read, God is too good.
