I am sitting in the Doha International Airport now blearily awaiting my flight to Singapore in about four hours and trying to block out the children screaming behind me...is there a playground there or something?

...Okay, just turned around to look and yes, there is a playground there indeed. I would move but I'm too tired and anyway I need to sit right by the TV sets with the departure gates information because as of now my flight has not yet shown up...

Anyway, this means that my time in America is officially over and it's weird because I seemed to take forever preparing for it and then it flew by. Which is not to say that I'm not glad to be going home because I am, I've done so much in the States and I'm quite willing to go back now. Regardless of how well you assimilate in a place, it's always home that you look forward to *___* 

It has truly been the most amazing time and I think I've changed quite a fair bit - definitely a lot more independent now, and probably more confident, and friendly (lol), and generally just a lot more comfortable with being in a foreign country all by myself. I've also learned how great people can be, because all the friends I've met in the States have been really fantastic to me, from my Buffalo friends sending me everywhere and entertaining me and bringing me out, to my LJ friends who housed me and fed me and took me places. So, a more specific thank-you: 

- To Lib, [livejournal.com profile] ununoriginal , [livejournal.com profile] sinonymity , [livejournal.com profile] irisated , [livejournal.com profile] rodiy , [livejournal.com profile] pregnantcigar , [livejournal.com profile] taoyan, for putting me up in New York and taking time out to be with me every single time I went into the City...you guys are the reason why I kept going back, time after time!

- To [livejournal.com profile] where_wordsfail for housing me in L.A. and then in NorCal, and tramping all over L.A. with me!

- To [livejournal.com profile] wobaozhewo for giving up an entire week for me in San Francisco and climbing up Telegraph Hill with me!

- To [livejournal.com profile] mawaru_berry for housing me in Rochester and being so sweet and adorable and just generally a joy to be with!

- To [livejournal.com profile] meiface for driving me two hours to and fro the beach in NC, and sitting with me for hours watching videos!

- To [livejournal.com profile] ky_rin, [livejournal.com profile] trivialaffair, [livejournal.com profile] xplodey_di, [livejournal.com profile] soratoufu for being brilliant company in Ann Arbor and driving me four hours to and fro Chicago and being insane and lovely and adorable and making my stay in AA a wonderful thing that I will remember for a long time!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU I am so, so happy that I met all of you and that we had all those long talks and good times. You will always be on my list of Precious Friends :DDD
