Missing You, Etc.

Ohhh how I am beginning to feel it. I'm not going back to Hillsdale! I am parted forever from the joys of undergraduate life. The excitement of moving back into the dorms. Seeing friends for the first time after a long summer. The sweltering heat of Michigan in mid-August. Catching the first glimpses of favorite professors. Long lines at registration. Bewildered freshmen. The bookstore. The glorious few days before classes begin. All no more. I think I'm going to go cry.

Maybe the attractiveness of the new school year is what keeps me coming back. I have always looked forward to it, no matter how torturous the previous year was. New beginnings, new resolutions, new possibilities, new things to learn. As much as I love summer (and I love it a whole lot) I couldn't linger here forever. And this fact prevents me from despairing in my laziness.

One more day at Sonic and two more at the pool before Hilton Head Island with the family. Then it will be time to repack for Aaron and Tiffany's wedding and meeting my host family in Georgetown. When I finally return to Kingsport the pool will be on school hours, i.e. only weekends. I'll have a haircut and a couple more weeks at Sonic, then it's off to DC. Off to the unknown. I have such a long to-do list, but I can't write it down since I don't have a planner. Buying a planner is like number one on my to-do list.
