It’s my last day here at NAPCO.
My internship is ending, my classes have wrapped up, my off-campus experience is over. Next week, I am leaving Philadelphia and heading back home to Michigan.
On one hand, I’m exited to get back to the friends, the family and the homemade cranberry sauce that await me this holiday season.* On the other hand, I’m sad to be saying goodbye to this office, these people and this city that I’ve called home for the past four months. I’ll be trading in the gray of the city for the white (at least, if Mother Nature gets her act together) of the rural area from which I hail. Leaving Philadelphia will be weird, and it’s weird that it’s weird. You know?
