... anxiously waiting to leave old school grounds...

I had said my good-byes to my 2nd graders, and I was so surprised that certain students had expressed my leaving with their tears and hugs. I shall miss them too. During the last semester, every day when I waited patiently for my students to return from their exercise sessions, I was usually welcomed with their hugs of me being there. Each embrace was a genuine gesture of affection and I, with the same sincerity, expressed the same in return. I will truly miss them so very much.
Presently, I'm still on Guagya Campus with plans leaving the grounds at the end of January, and remain in Chengdu till my departure, or find a hostel in Dalian to stay before arriving at my new school by 24 Feb, I want to enjoy Festival as possible.
Granted, I'm slightly stressed for I had my request for bus transport into Chengdu and stay the night before flight since middle of November, and when I wanted to confirm my transportation 31 December, the scheduler was throwing a verbal fit. Again this week, I'm requesting for my transportation which Headmaster stated that I should have no problem in obtaining, but getting headache from the administrative portion.
Officially and technically, I've been free from school since last week, now I'm saving money and finishing whatever provisions remaining in tis apartment. Gee, four weeks remaining before I can really enjoy my full freedom from tis school grounds. Got to continue thinking positive and know that faith is on my side.
Before closing, my GF had sent me the following passage below in which I'll keep reminding myself everyday the best is yet to arrive.
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.
