Last Days at Home

This is it. My last night at home, my last day before I move into the dorm. I know millions of people have done it before, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting or scary. Or surreal. I’ll admit, I’ve spent most of the day acting like I’m not going away tomorrow.

The last few days have been a lot of fun. On Sunday I got to see Guardians of the Galaxy with my family, and then on Monday I went up to a lake with my best friend and her family.


It was so gorgeous up there. A perfect break from all the craziness of trying to get everything sorted out at home. Unfortunately, their boat had a leak so we couldn’t paddle around in the lake ๐Ÿ™ But we got to talk for hours about all sorts of nerdy writer stuff, which was a lot more fun in my opinion.

Yesterday was a bit torturous with a dentist AND doctor’s appointment… But they’re both out of the way for a long time and dad took me out for dinner to our favorite Vietnamese restaurant.

And of course today was a bit frantic. One of my closest friends came over and helped me finish packing, which was a huge help. (Thank you! <3) The car is mostly loaded up and ready to go!

Avoiding looking at the camera as always.

He’s been such a blessing this last year and it’s going to be hard to see him go.

Tomorrow morning is the start of a new chapter of life; one I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. The face of change is always a little scary. But at 6:30 am I’ll be on my way to college. Hooray!

Until next time!

    Wishing you the best of luck with school and settling in! I know several people in our household will be missing you and praying for you. Take care of yourself and enjoy your new journey!

    Fun, scary, exciting, challenging, and all the rest. God bless you, He is there too. The one friend who will always be there while you are making new friends- which sometimes takes a while- to find the really good ones ๐Ÿ˜‰
