I can say with one hundred percent certainty that in 9 days I will not miss my mom's random singing or my dad's jokes. I definitely am not going to miss laughing til I cry with my siblings or late night Steak n' Shake runs with my squad. I will not miss my high school or my job or any of the other things that I am used to seeing on a daily basis.
(Okay I'll admit, that entire paragraph was a lie.)
Despite the fact that I'd love to pretend I have no feelings, I really am going to miss everyone and everything that I love here in Ohio. I have to admit that it's going to be really hard to move away (1,748 miles to be exact). But that's not a bad thing. I'm so grateful for the people and experiences I've had in my life because they're truly what made me my quirky, ambitious self. As a Pinterest addict, it would be impossible to not live by a quote I see on there so frequently--"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." Yes it's ridiculously cheesy, I know, but it's still good advice.
I am going to my dream school. I can remember being on the campus at seven years old and saying "This is where I'm gonna go." Well now I've made it, I've accomplished that life-long goal. So when I leave Ohio I will take all the wonderful memories with me, and go after my dreams.
Thanks for reading and go Cougars!
