Sad or Glad?

H asks:
Are you sad or glad that your trip is coming to an end? Or both?
My answer? Yes.

Yesterday (I think it was yesterday), I was thinking how, even though I've really enjoyed my time here, I felt satisfied and that it was time to be going home.

This afternoon as I packed up "my" office, I felt a real pang.

Is it okay if I feel both sad and glad at the same time?

I think it's normal to feel both! I feel that way every time I leave somewhere I've lived for a while (even "just" a month). :)

Didn't you feel that way leaving Chapel Hill? :)

I think it's _best_ to feel both. You had a good time, so you feel sad, but you have somewhere you missed to go back to. What could be better?
