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!

Wow, it seems like just yesterday that you were waiting to hear if you'd be able to come to the USA!

I am sure you've learned a lot in your studies, but I am sure you have also learned a lot about yourself and about the USA and our people. Hopefully some of it was good. :-)

Safe travels back home.

I hope you will have smooth flights home Morbido. Have a very happy homecoming reunion with your family! :)

I will look forward to some regular posting by you in the near future!

Take care and good luck!

Can't believe two years back we were sitting in that hotel room where it was too awkward to say good buy, shed a tear and prayed for a better future for both of us.

All the best Morbido :) can't wait to here all about this journey.

Have a safe flight home.

The last time I checked your blog, you were coming to the US. Wow now, you are leaving. I am now a former fulbrighter as well.

Morbido,

I'm so happy to see that you can now re-unite with your family -- in fact, as you read this, you must already be back home with them.

Please keep us posted on how you're doing back in Iraq.

Morbido,

Hey, I just rewrote my "New Iraqi Bloggers" section for 2005. If there's anything you'd like me to change or add, let me know.

From one Morbido to another!

I just found your blog, and I spent quite a lot time reading old posts. Unfortunately you haven't updated this blog for almost more than a year, I don't even know if you'll read my comment... but I thought that it's worth a shoot, since I was so excited finding your blog. I'm a 26 year old young lady ^_^ living in Sweden and my major is literature as well. Oh well no need to write down my entire biography, hehe... Just to say, I'd love getting to know more about how things are going now, what are you doing? Are you teaching literature? Whatever you are doing, I wish you the best of luck!

Lots of love from a pretty Morbid girl too :)
