Move in Day

Today marks the official first day of my adult life. I moved out of my parents house and into the dorms at my school. After hardly sleeping for most of the night, I woke up early this morning and started to load last minute stuff into my parents cars. There was a lot of tears (mostly from leaving my dogs) but it hasn’t been a horrible day. I moved everything in within an hour and went out for brunch with my family. In fact, my dad just left fifteen minutes ago. I’m sure the silence is bound to set in soon, but for now I’m going to watch some Grey’s Anatomy while I wait for my RA to host our floor meeting.

Commencement

 

Exactly a week ago tomorrow was my the day of my high school graduation. The seventh day of June in the year two thousand seventeen won’t go down in many history books as a significant date to remember, but for the five hundred and fifty six students in my graduating class, it will. Walking across that stage felt surreal almost, and I definitely expected to shed more tears. However, I feel content with the way high school ended for me. Those last few seconds before the fireworks started and the graduating class of 2017 threw their caps in the air are seconds I will cherish for the rest of my life. I’m proud to say I graduated from my high school, and I can’t wait to see what the next chapter in my life has in store for me.
