Coming into this internship I knew that I'd be living with 12 strangers from over and that in 7 weeks the odds of ever seeing them again were slim to none. At first, you try and resist getting close to them. You'll try and save yourself the pain of becoming attached just to lose them in a short amount of time.. Well, let me tell you, it's pointless and a waste of time and energy.
These people will come into your life, change the way you think, get in your way, annoy you, challenge you, tell you that you're wrong when you know you're right, use your stuff, invade your personal space, and it'll be the best thing you've ever experienced. You'll grow as a person, become more open-minded, and learn more about yourself than you ever expected.
I've loved every second of this crazy, wonderful, unorganized, life changing, beautiful, internship and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
Now, I only have less than two weeks with my FosterClub family and I don't know what to do. The thought of leaving my roommates and possibly never seeing them again makes me SO sad and I'm not quite sure how to handle it.
Even though I'm sad to be separated from these people that I've grown to love and care about, I'm so grateful to have loved and lost than to have never have gotten close with them at all.
