Any way, we were all hanging out at the party and music was playing. One of the things I will miss is hearing the silly songs that are so popular here. This is hands down one of the most popular songs here and I cannot even begin to count how many times I have heard it. And it just makes me want to laugh and dance at the same time.
Friday was the first time that I got really sad about leaving. I will miss everyone in this program, after seeing everyone almost everyday for a semester and travelling around with them, and then not knowing when I will see them next is such a sad thought. I will miss Heredia, and seeing my gringo friends while I am out and about in a country of ticos (BTW gringo is no longer a derogatory term so don't take offense. It's totally okay to be called gringo). I will also miss Spanish everywhere, even though it is sometimes confusing. I was at a copy shop this morning trying to print something out for class and my professor showed up. The lady at the store tried to tell me something and I had no clue what it was (I am blaming it on the fact that I only had 5 hours of sleep). Thankfully my teacher was there to clarify it for me (although I am positive she was probably thinking I should have understood what was going on). I am definitely gonna miss my host family. There is no way I can express enough gratitude to them for sharing their home with me.
I won't miss my classes, or the trash, or the fear of being robbed at gunpoint. I also won't miss the lack of refrigeration of products that in the US are always refrigerated.
The countdown is at 10 days as of tomorrow. And I am satisfied with this semester.
