I was thinking about using a different title for this but since my original blog post was Leaving is weird, I figured I might as well end the main leg of my journey with another homage to that. Because I’m practically done. Sure, I’m going to Ireland and Iceland for the next fifteen days or so but I’m pretty much done. In a few days I’ll have been gone for seven months and I never thought this trip would actually ever end. Time is weird man. Like, I’ve gone through some long days and longer weeks yet looking back now it seems that the time literally flew right by me. Maybe I’ll write a longer post about all this from the comfort of my hotel bed in Ireland tonight or maybe I won’t. I feel like I’m in shock yet again. I know it’s over except I don’t know how to process it. I’ll be leaving a country I spent over two months in with people that I’ve grown to love and care for to going to a country where I’m going to finally be able to drink lots. I’ve just been so used to this volunteering lifestyle, and this constant flux of new people in it and out, and this somewhat routine based schedule and now it’s all over and I don’t know what’s happening next. I don’t even know what’s going to happen in this next sentence. I feel I had all these ideas that just dissipated from my mind the moment I started typing the actual words out. All I know is that it’s crazy for this to be nearing the end. Or like I said, this basically is the end. I’m going to a couple more countries because I’m in the area and I just want to sightsee and keep traveling while I can. But I’m done, I’m done with what I signed up to do. Which is crazy! I know I’m all the better for it and I know I’ll be thanking myself and my family for years to come for supporting me and my desire to do this. It’s sad but it’s happy. It’s so many emotions. Yes, I know I just said it’s so many emotions and that I only said two. I just didn’t feel I had to list all of them, okay? I really thought I would have over one thousand words here and I’m just struggling to hit four hundred. All I know is that I’ve loved my time, I’ve loved my experiences, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Would I change some things that I did or said? Of course because that’s what we all would do. I’m just glad I did this, I’m glad what’s going to happen because I did this and I’m glad that marriage equality extends to everyone. Hopefully, I’ll go into a little more depth about my thoughts and experiences but even if I don’t, I’ve written enough blog posts already for people to understand where I’m coming from. I’ll be boarding a plane for Dublin in around two hours and I’m just excited to enjoy my last couple of weeks abroad. I don’t know what else to say and I’m okay with that. It’s All Crazy! It’s All False! It’s All a Dream! It’s Alright. That album title made a lot more sense when I only remembered a couple of words from it. I’m sticking with it anyway. So it goes.
