When I try to explain my situation to people, they don't seem to get where I'm coming from.
For the international students, like myself, they are excited to go back to the embrace of their loved ones after a fun-filled semester.
"I've had the best of experience here, but I can't wait to go home!"
For the locals, a handful of people will give you a little pity pat on the shoulder combined with some comfort words, and watch you go. The other handful of people, the ones you are closer to, will genuinely feel sad to send you off.
But will any of those people ever really understand your frustration?
