As Ms.Karla told Anna as she gets mentally prepared to go home:
“The best life is one when you like where you are, but you also like going home.”
Her words are so simple, and slightly awkward, as to be understood by the exchange student, and they describe my internal struggle with being away from the Bay Area until NEXT YEAR. Ugh. I’ve been consumed by and connected to SCU, SF and the entire area.
