today was a sad day… I’ve become so used to Romania that I totally forgot that we had to go back eventually. Today was the day of our departure.
In the morning we went back to the school to say goodbye to everyone. Most of the Romanian students promised to come to Belgium and many of the Belgian students promised to go back to Romania. Everyone was quite emotional and we didn’t want to go home.
We have made so many beautiful memories, met so many interesting people and have gone through so many emotions. I’m happy to know each and everyone I’ve met during this adventure. I’m proud of every single thing I’ve done and I wouldn’t change a single thing.
This may feel like an end to something wonderful, but I’m sure I’ll see them again and that I’ll talk to them again. I never thought that I’d miss someone I’ve only known for two weeks but I do, I really do. I’m sure that this is just the beginning of a new chapter.
I’d really like to thank our teachers for giving us this opportunity. Keep fighting for this project because it’s worth every penny and every piece of hard work. The Humanistic Sciences has to keep this going, this has to be our signature. I can honestly say that I’ve never been so proud to be part of a group then at this exact moment thinking about what we’ve achieved.
And to all who say that this was just a fun trip, it wasn’t. What we did may have been a drop in the ocean and there still is a lot of work but when you saw their eyes lit up with joy, I swear, you felt like nothing could stop you. You felt like a superhero. Even more, in their eyes, even if it was for a short time, you were a superhero. So this is also a shout-out to my classmates: be proud. You changed lives.
I guess my part in this ride is almost over. I don’t know what I’ll do with this blog, maybe I’ll post something every now and then but maybe it’s time to pass it on to the next year…
I’ll miss you…
