goodbye... i will be away for 4 years. i have been accepted to study in the USA beginning the fall semester of this year in an electrical engineering undergraduate program. the classes will start during the last week of this month of august and i should arrive there on the second half of this month, the latest to attend the mandatory orientation. as a freshman according to the assistant director that i spoke with, i am required to live on campus for at least 1 year. i do not know if the means of communicating with you again friends is being provided.. maybe, i should concentrate first with my adjustments until i can manage and used to everything inside the campus... i will miss you all.. my roommate here who is crying and hugging me all the time upon learning that i am embarking to the US. he said, he should have pursued his plan not to come back here anymore and find a nice job in egypt during his annual vacation...i will miss this guy and am so blessed of having him.. sure, he became a part of my life now. to my mylot friends who always read and give their says on my discussions, Ravisan, ThatGirl, Alvaro/starsailover, Neildc, Hatley, Richnai, Urbandekay, DavidOrback/jerusalemfolk and many more, i will miss you all! Soon, if i come back, i will let you read my Transition from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United States of America. i've learned a lot from mylot and it is my first alma mater i can say! i love mylot! to be honest, while typing this post, i felt so emotional already so please avoid a tear jerking response.. i can still read your responses here until tuesday. my flight is on the 10th.. thanks!

No goodbyes... you are in a good path, and it will only be temporary... Say see you soon, rather than goodbye. It is a wonderful opportunity for you and I know your friends are happy that you are studying in a good place. They will miss you, but at least you may get back. Who knows? You can find time to still mylot once in a while when you arrive there ? You can still speak with them if you really want. For now. God Bless you on your journey.

Goodbye for now. I hope that you will be back on excellent My Lot in the future. Well done for getting accepted to study electrical engineering in the United States of America. I hope that you will have a very enjoyable and interesting 4 years of study. Studying abroad is very exciting and worthwhile. I studied in the Netherlands for 4 months when I was on a university exchange program. I wasn't into computers in those days. You might be able to hop back on My Lot from time to time when your studies allow I hope. Best wishes for your trip.
