What makes this so bittersweet for me is that my husband and I will not be attending because he is repeating this semester. That's right. We should be moving back to America in 5 weeks, but instead we will be here another 4 months.
The whole repeating thing was a hard pill to swallow at first. Mostly because my pride was getting in the way. Being a student is what I'm good at. I graduated with above a 4.0 from high school, aced my AP exams, magna cum laude from college.. school is my thing. And somehow, Chris's schooling is mixed in with my feelings about myself. It's a confusing mess of emotions for me.
Even though I'm sad that Chris is repeating, I am thrilled that I get to come back to Dominica after Christmas. Although I complain sometimes about the island, I really do love my life here.
