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.
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.
