A FAREWELL ACROSS THE WORLD

Naz left Sydney today. She has spent the last year and a bit there getting her Masters and generally living her new life. Her visa has run out and now she must leave behind her very first apartment, her boyfriend, her friends and her town to go back to Mississauga. She's chatted about her thoughts on this here.
It's brought home the reality that this will be me in about a year. I know that's far away but this last year has rushed by so fast that I can't help but feel this one will slip through as well. So it's been on my mind.
I will have to do the same thing. Leave behind my very first house, my boyfriend, my friends and my town to go back to Mississauga.
I don't want to leave London! Granted, sometimes I miss Toronto with a fierceness so strong it makes me cry but more often than not I love the things I do in London so much more. Because in Toronto my life was stagnant. In London, I am doing things! I am meeting people (awesome people), I am seeing things, I am trying things and I am forcing myself out of my comfort zone as much as I can (much to the chagrin of my bank account).
I can't bear the idea of leaving this place . . .
