I’m unhappy because The Boy is leaving Morocco in a few hours and I just can’t think of many reasons to stay here without him. We’ve had such a tremendous week, but I don’t have any drive now to go back to school. Also, I’ve not seen much of the Moroccan family, and so I am feeling a bit at a loose end, and not sure what to do with myself. I feel like I’m going to need a couple of days of settling back into a routine before I can answer that question.
I know I have a lot to look forward to though, so rather than letting myself slide down the wall into a little sad puddle on the floor, I’m going to try and take this feeling as a wake-up call, to remind myself that I have two and a half months left in this fantastic country to get lots of things seen, get some good grades, and learn a lot at my work internship. And the fact is, that though I am going to really miss the people I’ve seen over the last few weeks, especially The Boy and my family, I don’t need people to support me night and day. I’m an independent young woman, in an awesome position, and by golly I’m going to make the most of it!
