one hundred


This is it: both my 100th post and the last words of wisdom I offer to you from abroad. I am leaving France in two days, and disconnecting my internet in a few minutes. Thus, my 101st post will be direct from the Pacific Northwest. I should mention that July 14th was also Serena Abroad.com's first birthday. France celebrated with fireworks and declared the day a holiday, thus post offices and government buildings were all closed. I was touched.
The year has been good, bad, great, terrible, educational, I feel like I've regressed in so many ways. Above all, I don't want to return to the States, but understand that that is the plan laid before me. I have never been one to argue with "fate." I return hopeful that the year will truly be full of "lasts." And, I get to see some people I have missed (glass half full), but will be forced to mingle with those I left trying to escape (glass half empty).
Looking back on the blog, some of the things I've experienced/written about still make me laugh, while I feel that other posts would've been much richer (and possibly much shorter) had I been willing to share a little bit more of my real identity. Dommage. I also noticed several spelling/grammar errors and am happy to say that I really just don't care enough to go back and fix them. Desolée.
Well, friends, I will be back to post on my re-entry next week, but until, thanks for reading, your comments, and support.
Á bientôt,

Serena
