Sweet two-ply toliet paper of heaven! Never again will I take for granted thy strength, durability and comfort. And I get to use it for 3 some more months!
I am home now. My sister is graduated from college now. The weekend was enjoyable with my family in Adrian Michigan for the celebration of my sister’s accomplishment. It was a good transition back to ‘home’ life. It was also interesting to experience – as much as I could – a college graduation knowing I had friends experience one yesterday, and I will be experiencing one in a few short years. Too short years. I’m not ready to stop being formally schooled, nay, I don’t want to leave formal education, nay, I don’t want to leave the people with whom I am formally educated. If this is being read by someone besides myself, it is probably one who goes to my school(I don’t think anyone from home reads this much anymore.), and it is the one(s) reading this that I don’t want to leave, or leave me. This year was amazing. Any regrets are more than covered by wonderful experiences of and with wonderful people. People to whom I don’t want to have to do what my sister did today, and what some did yesterday – say good-bye for more than likely ever this side of heaven. This is why I didn’t want to go away, because I never want that inevitable moment to come. I was writting in my head my own baccaloriate(sp?) and commencement address while listening to the ones given today, and I got a little watery-eyed while doing so because I was writting how I will actually feel.
I look forward to next year. I think it will be a good year. Though with far less people of whom I currently call my friends. And even less in subsequent years. It is rather bitter-sweet. And I do love being home. I dearly miss those whom I love in Michigan. I had an opportunity to see some tonight, but for various reasons chose not to. One of the things I chose to do was catch up on my Car&Driver on the couch while listening to the likes of Unwed Sailor and The Kings Of Convience. The couch is where I’ll sleep tonight because my room is small and my bed is covered with things from school. And the couch is where I’ll now return.
