The ICG. The end of another great experience.

The end of another great experience. The International Children's Games came to a close yesterday (Sunday). Most teams would only leave on Monday. My team left yesterday evening, soon after the Closing Ceremony.
I woke up this morning and my first thought was of my team, their faces flashed across my mind: "I'm meeting them today." Then, I realised, no, I'm not meeting them anymore today. Nor any other day, probably. I might not see them ever again. :(
I'm quite surprised myself to realise that I'm actually missing them, and missing the overall atmosphere of the Games, in general. It felt strange waking up this morning and realising that I won't be walking around campus with my team, accompanying them to their sporting venues, meals etc anymore. What would I do now?? :P
I'm sure I'll find lots of activities to keep me busy soon. But at the moment, there's just this tiny feeling of being "lost".

I've not made as many new friends as I would have liked, but I've certainly met some wonderful individuals from whom I've learned lessons of life from – particularly, in the art of communication, and the general good spirit of celebrating the unique differences of the world's people.
Being a Team Host and working alongside the Games' organisers, team coaches, VIPs and delegates have taught me the importance of being responsible for one's actions and speech. The urgency and challenge of making sure that what I convey to them is true and what I promise to do will be done. The maturity to interact and work with them in a professional manner, and to gain their confidence in me.
I have given my best for my team, and for the Games. For that, I can be happy with myself. I can only hope that I had been of some help to them and that they had really enjoyed their time here for the past week. Good Luck in your future endeavours, and may our paths cross again some day :)
And to the organisers, thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this great experience, and well done for a very successful Games!
