So. I could go off on a long sappy post about what I've learned in about ten months, how much I'm gonna miss everything in Lima...yada yada yada.
But I won't. Not now.
Instead, I dedicate this post to my dear Kara, who has made this semester so much better than I'm sure it would have been otherwise, and shall henceforth be either an ocean or several states away.
I'll miss our face-to-face conversations, like these:
Kara: I wouldn’t want to be you. (When I had a bunch of essays. )
Me: I don’t want to be me either. I want to be you.
K: You don’t want to be me.
M: Why don’t I want to be you?
K: I dunno. (Pause) You’re right. My life’s pretty f***ing fantastic.
And I'll miss our long philosophical discussions (we weren't arguing, we were discussing!)
K: Ugh. Men are stupid.
M: I agree. Can that be an intrinsically male quality?
M: Oh good. The only one.But I still mean to have these conversations, which occurred via Skype:
Kara: He's a boy, not a man, that's the problem.
Me: I think "man" is a myth anyway...
Kara: Does that mean all women are pedophiles?
Kara: Or motherly
Me: Disturbing, both of them
Kara: Except for lesbians
Me: The only truly mature relationships
Thanks, Kara dear, for putting up with me so much this semester my dear! I'll see you again when you come to visit next year. . . .
And as for you all, I'll catch you again on the other side!
