***LOUISE POSTING FROM SYDNEY'S ACCOUNT***
I can't believe we have been here for four months. Just a few days left, and I'm getting super sentimental. My time here flew right by and I'm definitely finding a new found appreciation for this city. It's easy to take things for granted when something is a part of your every day life, but nearing the end of my stay I realize precious every minute is here.
I think I have grown a lot this semester artistically in the sense I have started a new habit of keeping a sketchbook. I'm still working on the consistency of this habit, however I'm slowly but surely getting there.
I can't believe I have to say goodbye in just a couple of days. I'm sad to have to leave my home.
