Before leaving home, I wanted to have a chance to say goodbye to everyone (family, friends, friends of friends, neighbors, etc.) so my parents and I decided it would be best to throw a huge party (it’s something we do really well). So we had a pig roast with kegs of beer, baked potatoes, salads and yummy desserts. It was also the Saturday before I left which happened to be my 24th birthday. Coincidence?
