I've always been a stickler for the rules. I've always been someone who lives by a schedule. I've always been someone who likes everything to go according to plan. Okay... that makes me seem a bit lame and scary, but I guess what I'm trying to say is that I like organization and precision.
I for one really dislike this 'season', it will always be really hard to see friends leave, and any expatriate will know the struggle. Especially in a place like Dubai where a lot of people only stay for around 2 years before they move onto their next home. And for someone who's used to being the one leaving, it's hard to be the one staying behind and saying goodbye.
No matter where you come from, your race, your religion, your background, we all live on this Earth. We all eat, sleep, and breath, in the same place that our ancestors have, and I would say will continue to (but you never know with science...) If the struggle of what we're doing to the planet can't bring us all together, then I don't know what will.
