And It's Over!

This is officially my last week in the U.S.

Last year, I was dreading this week and almost didn't want to think of it. Yet now, it all feels so odd! I'm just not sad about leaving at all. It is like there is something in me that doesn't believe I'm actually leaving, or it's more like a feeling that I will be back here someday. It's not that I plan to come back or anything since my primary goal for now is to get a job back home, but I feel that somehow I will be back.
In any case, I'm so happy about going home and can't wait to get there! I'll be leaving the US next Saturday on a flight right to Jordan (fourteen hours or so, yuck!), then spend a night there and take my final flight to Baghdad on Monday the 29th. It will be an exhausting trip but it's worth it for sure!

There is so much to talk about, especially the past two years that went like a blink. So many incidents passed, so many lessons learned, and so many faces met. I hope that once I get home I will have more time to blog as regularly as possible and talk about all of the things I've seen here.

Wish me good luck!
