Goodbye Room 108…It’s been real.

Well folks, the end is here. Kidding! Well, the school year is over at least. My roommate went home today, and I’m leaving tomorrow night. It’s strange, I can vividly remember unpacking and moving in exactly some amount of days ago. I didn’t feel like counting, but its a lot. Trust me. I remember crying in my room as soon as Mom and Dad left, and then hiding it when my roommate walked in so she wouldn’t think I was a total weirdo. I think she still does :). I remember my first day of classes, my first day at work, and a lot more firsts. Now it’s my first summer after college. Not sure if I’m ready for this first…There have yet to be tears (I’m saving those for tomorrow), but there has been sadness. Walking into a half-empty room, packing up all of my belongings except for the necessities for tomorrow, and even finishing my finals today have all been just a little depressing. While I was packing tonight, I thought a lot about the year as I put away pictures and notes and tons of other memories into a box. I realized there were a lot of things I wish I had known before school started. I wish I knew that I didn’t need all the clothes I packed (it’s obscene how much I have), I wish I knew that no matter what I use to stick my posters to the wall, either the wall or the poster/picture will inevitably be ruined, I wish I knew that no matter how much I wanted to leave school and to be gone, it will still be hard to leave. I wish someone told me that it’s ok to call school home, it kind of is in a way. I wish I knew that staying up late defines college, and sleep is almost never an option, even on the weekends. I wish I knew that people will be people, and thats just the way it is. Despite all I learned this year, the previous list being only a percentage of it, there’s still a lot I don’t know. I don’t know why it’s so hard to leave school, I don’t know why Garlock food still makes me sick, and I don’t know why I still expect to know everything. I don’t know what I want to do for the rest of my life, or even next year for that matter. I would tell you my summer plans, but I don’t want to plan something, and then not do it. I can guarentee that I will be working, but that is the only absolute promise I will make for now. I have some pictures, but I still have things to pack, so the pictures will go up when I go home. But this is my official last blog from my dorm room in Updyke 108. Though they were not frequent, they were fun to write, and I will continue the adventures elsewhere. Adios,

More later,
