The first in a long line of goodbyes came today. I'm still here another month and they've already started. Today's goodbye came at the high school. It doesn't really count though, seeing as I'll be back a few more times at least for conversation classes with the students who are heading off to Canada in the fall. And I haven't even given my official goodbye speech to the teachers. But it's started. I hate this part.
