High: leaving the Islamic Civilization classroom knowing that all that studying I did? It paid off.
Low: no matter how much I searched my room, with other people helping, I couldn't find my ATM card
High: sitting on the top bunk in a friend's room, eating ice cream and watching this week's episode of NCIS
Low: 12:30 in the morning when there is still hours of homework left to do and that feeling as if the weight is going to crush me
High: checking my email, one last time, at three thirty when I finish the homework and discover emails from my old Japanese teacher and old Japanese host mother waiting for me.
All in the same 24 hours...
