What are you going to miss the most, and what are you looking forward to the most?

I’m going to miss the quiet environment of the Fireplace Lounge in Adanti; often, after a long day of classes and studying, I would take an hour to sit and read, watching over the pavilion as the sun set. While I’m sad my journey at Southern is coming to a close, I am very excited to start the next chapter!
