I'm beginning to feel like my time in Singapore is nearly over. I'm headed to Hong Kong tomorrow, coming back to Singapore for a day, going to see Justin Bieber in KL, then it's my last week of class, then I'm going to Bali for a week, then I have finals, then Bangkok, back to Singapore, and finally Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and HOME. Though this is all happening over 2 months, I have no doubt that it's going to fly by. It's pretty crazy to think about considering I feel like I just got here. I can still vividly remember the feeling of my Mom leaving me in the hotel room at 3am in the morning. I was still jet-lagged so my body forced me to stay awake and deal with the emotional train that hit me right when she left. I was all alone in a new country on the opposite side of the world from what I then called home without a clue of what to expect.
I like to think I've come a long way since then. Of course this is extremely cliché, but I feel like a much more cultured person. HOWEVER, I can't help but think that I will be extremely annoying based on an article I stumbled upon about 5 Things NOT To Do After Returning From Abroad - tips for successful reentry to the US after studying abroad. This is a little premature, but I thought it was funny because of the truth in it. I can already here myself beginning every comment I make with "Well, when I was in Singapore/ Thailand/ The Philippines/ Indonesia/ etc...." I think that my many friends abroad right now will find humor in this too. Let's try to not get on each other's nerves when we all get back ;)

I'll do my best, but let me just apologize in advance for everything that I may say or do that is extremely annoying. You have my permission to slap me.
