I know things have been a little quiet around here as of late. The first two weeks of summer have been crazy busy with moving, switching jobs, and so on. But in the midst of all the chaos, I’m thankful for my sister who’s down for silly photo shoots and marathoning New Girl.
It’s going to be a good summer.
As this turkey feast
comes to an abrupt, bitter close
may we survive finals.
Obviously, I am no poet. I am, however, hoping that each and every one of you had a restful break; full of food, family, and zero politics (excluding those sublime Joe Biden memes. What a glorious man).
I also hope that you spent today wrapped in a post-turkey radiance. I personally spent this afternoon basking in the glow of Christmas lights, while my dog and I caught up on all the Netflix we missed out on over the semester. Sometimes there’s nothing more delicious than letting yourself have a break.
Until next time,
I graduated today. It was bittersweet. (Though mostly sweet.)
Although the ceremony took place more than eight hours ago, it’s just now hitting me that it’s truly over. My diploma has been signed, my tassel swung, and my cap has been thrown. I am officially an alumni, as well as a freshman in college.
I’ve kind of shuffled my way through the past semester. Work, school, and even dance has felt so pointless up until this now. I think the last semester of senior year is like that for everyone though; it’s hard to care about high school things when you know you’re going to be at college in a few months. Everything felt sluggish and strangely underwater-like for me.
Until prom. As soon as that was over, finals and the election hit. Then graduation. Next comes the senior trip, (we’re leaving on Monday,) which will be followed by my last dance recital, and my open house. Then it’ll be time for the Junior Leader’s achievement trip to Chicago, after which will come 4-H fair and State Fair, and my last family vacation to AL. And then I’ll be moving into a dorm on August 17th.
August seems so far away right now. But I know that the summer is going to fly by scarily fast.
It’s all so strange. And new. And exciting.
p.s. My senior pictures were taken by this gal. check her out because she’s incredibly talented and a super awesome human.
