Time

by lcjonesla

I am refusing to go to bed because

I realize that tomorrow will be my last day in Tucson.

Where does the time go?

Wasn’t I just a freshman going to orientation scared as hell yet so excited when

I got one of those weird plastic water bottles.

And now I am an alumnae?

 

Today, I said goodbye not just to my best

friends, but to my lifestyle in Tucson.

Besides my frequent binge drinking, I said goodbye to

Sixth Street, which I drive on every day to get to class/food.

I said goodbye to the El Con mall, where I would

spontaneously see a movie AKA Twilight and Harry Potter.

These places aren’t really that significant but the memories that I made were.

I was forced to go to the mall and take solo glamour shots after my hellish 4 hour SBS graduation ceremony

Perhaps it is because I am not a very aggressive person, but I always feel like were running.

Not actually, since I struggle with that form of fitness but running to the next part.

Elementary school your worried about getting into a good middle school that will be a feeder for a good high school, which will be a feeder for a good college, so you can have a good life, and then when your finally in college, your searching for a job.

Will there be a point where we don’t think ahead and worry about the next stage but rather just enjoy?

I am hoping that is what life is like after college.

There will be a happier post about graduation but right now I am very sad.
