I absolutely cannot believe the year is nearly finished. With less than two weeks left, I feel like I can't possibly have already completed half of my UWC experience, but also like I've been here forever and learned so much and had so much fun. Looking back on it all, I can't help thinking how unbelievable UWC is, and how lucky I am that I get to live it. And comparing the person I was at the beginning, and who've I've grown to be is strange- on the one hand, I don't feel like I've changed radically, but on the other, I definitely feel more mature and ready to take on the world. I see the same changes in my classmates. I'm excited to continue next year, to meet our firsties, but first we all have to get past the next couple of weeks. First years have kicked off final exams this week, and second years are in their third week of IB exams (shout out to my IB Buddy, good luck, O! :)), and once testing finishes, packing, graduation, and saying good-bye will be here much, much sooner than I would like. I guess that too is part of the UWC experience, but hopefully we'll all still stay in touch and visit each other and continue the legacy. But for now it's just important to study for tomorrow's exam. Wish me luck!
