Tomorrow is my last day here at Dickinson. It is so strange, the life I live. I move back and forth from home to second home. I really feel like Dickinson is my second home. It really just hit me, for so long I was homesick and wishing to be in the place I am used to. Now, this is home to me too. I have a whole life here, a family that is made up of my friends and great people who support me here. Today I completely packed up my room, all the posters are off of the walls and all of the clothes are out of the closet. It looks so empty in here, yet it reminds me of the first couple of days I was here. So much has changed since then.
I am the same girl, but with a new twist!!
I have learned so much this year. Not only about academics, although the amount of I have learned in that field is tremendous, also though, I have learned so much about myself. I have learned how to be independent, how to live on my own. Of course, I still have so many people supporting me, but really when it comes down to it, I'm the only one who will always be there!
I am very sad to say goodbye to my friends tomorrow, but I am very excited to see old friends and family. I drive up to New York with Mike tomorrow afternoon after my Final... stay there till Sunday and then fly home on Mother's day! I won't come back to Dickinson for another 3 months.... oh dear..
I will miss my second family - the greatest friends in the world.
