In 1 month and 9 days, I will be on my way to Shanghai. Yesterday when I was at work, I felt it very strongly .... that I will be leaving really soon. It is something I am looking forward but also scared of. I feel heavy-hearted about leaving all that I am familiar with, and people who are dear to me. My friends and relatives as well as my students - have been a big part of my life and I will miss every single one of them, even those who irritate me to no end.
