Day 28: The Beginning of Chapter 2

The end of a chapter, but the start of another one. This is how I feel about the end Microcampus. I cannot remember the original reason that made me came here, perhaps it was because of my parents, I will never know, but after 28 days in Xizhou, I now know the reason of why I came here. I came here to try something new, to try something that I have never experienced before, I wanted to find a place to calm down and think before I act, I wanted some experiences on how "Real Life" would be like, and how different it is from SAS. 

I came to Microcampus to try something that was new to me, to experience something that I will remember. The hike really taught me that, to try your hardest, to persevere even when the odds are stacked against you. Finally, and stand tall when there is hardship looming above.
I came to Microcampus to try to experience what living in a part of rural China feels like. Through my experiences and my connections, I felt what it is to live in a part of rural China, the people are more open and kind, and the living portion is not that big of a difference, we still get a roof over our heads, and we still are like a family.

I came to Microcampus for the experience, it is not the end nor the start, I came only for the experience and the learning that I would get out of it. I was not sure of what this was until I came to Microcampus, after coming here, I learnt that the experience is always, far more important than the beginning and the end.
The Microcampus is only a small chapter of my book of life, but this chapter will affect the chapters to come. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and I wish I could do it again. 

I will always remember Xizhou as my home, Microcampus will always have a special place in my heart, it will always be in the back of my head, reminding me of what to do. The people of Xizhou will always have a spot in my heart, I will always remember them as the kindest people I have seen in the world. The teachers and the students at Microcampus will always be remembered as my most dearest memory. 

My name is Norman and I am 13 years old, I was in Xizhou for 28 days, this experience has taught me many things, I will forever treasure this experience, Microcampus will always have a special place in my heart.
