Last Day Here

Man, the countdown has gone fast.. it went from one week left, last weekend, to my very last day here.

Are you ever afraid?

I am so nervous.

I know I have already been to school and so I know how everything goes, I have a wonderful group of friends to be going to and I have so many great things going on once I am there. I am just so nervous to leave home. It is scary, leaving the comfortable cradle that I have lived in for so many years. Finally, I have to suck it up, and become an adult. I am scared to wake up in a place where I have no family anywhere close, nobody who has known me for more than a year.. I am scared to not have a my moms bed only one floor above mine to go crawl into on those nights where you just can't sleep.

It is scary.

But it is a challenge that I know I will face and learn and grow from it. I know that once I get into the swing of things back at school, i will look back on this entry and laugh... no great success can come without risk. And I think going to school half way across the country was a good idea, I am experiencing a new part of the country, with new kinds of people and I am learning!

Well for now, I am going to enjoy a nice evening with my friends for a final dinner.

The past couple of days have been so wonderful with friends! I am going to miss them a alot! But I know that they are all going to experience their own new things, just as I am experiencing mine.

Here are some pictures from the past couple of days..





Have a great day!
