Today I’m going back home after a whole semester as an exchange student at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School. It was a busy and awesome time and it lasted way too short. I wish my whole academic experience could have been like these past 4 months. But I know all good things must come to an end and we decided to commemorate the event with one last American breakfast at Denny’s located next to our hotel. Breakfast is my favorite American meal and I went all out with pancakes, hash browns, eggs and more… I don’t think I’ll need to eat on the plane.
After stuffing ourselves we packed up our bags one final time, pretended to make phone calls from one of those typical phone booths you see in movies all the time. Most of my impressions about the States came from movies and TV shows, and I must say after my initial and unpleasant culture shock, this country turned out to be everything I expected it to be. I can’t wait to come back again, but first I’m coming home!
