I reached a milestone a couple days ago. I finished my first year of college classes and my junior year of high school. I cannot believe that this fall I’m going to be a senior. These high school years go by *SO* fast! I also move in exactly TWENTY days. We are scheduled to leave on the 22nd of this month! AHH! So much to do and SO little time! I’m in the point of the moving process where I’m feeling overwhelmed. Overwhelmed at how many things I will leave behind, pack up, or put in storage. Overwhelmed at how many things I have in my possession. Overwhelmed mainly at how many people I love I am leaving behind.
I am leaving behind some of the most precious people I’ve ever known. These friends have seen me at my worst. They have seen me in tears. They have seen me angry. They have seen me smile and laugh. Most of all, they never left. Maybe I don’t see a lot of them on a daily basis but every time we get back together, it’s like we were never parted. I can’t count the number of times I’ve cried about leaving my friends behind. (choking back tears right now!) The best thing is, I know they will be still here for me. We may not live in the same neighborhood or state, but I can still count on them. So yes, I will bawl my eyes out when I leave but how much sweeter the reunion will be. Plus I will be visiting at one time or another, so I will not completely be out of their lives:)
Off to prom with one of my favorite people ever (aka Anna, pictured above) tomorrow night! Pictures to come this weekend or next week!
