I'm a really sentimental person. Standing in my (nearly) empty room today (in my apartment) honestly made me want to cry. I had a really, really good school year and I'm genuinely sad to see it end. I can't believe my time in this apartment is already over. It literally feels like just weeks ago that I moved in.
I was packing up all my clothes and thinking about all the times I wore them this year (I wasn't kidding about being sentimental), and it almost scared me that time can move so quickly. I feel like this year went by in the blink of an eye -- even more so than previous years. I kept saying to myself, "This is the last time I will ___________ in this apartment" about EVERYTHING. I kid you not, I even thought to myself, "This is the last time I will turn this hall light off." College is such a weird time because I'm rarely stationary. Just as soon as I was really loving all the quirks of this apartment, it's time to leave it. I don't know, I guess most people probably feel like this when something special comes to a close. I will never live in this apartment with my three girlfriends again, and it just made me feel really sad. Of course I'm excited about all the things coming my way in the near future, but sometimes it feels really good just to savor all the last bits of something. Even though it makes me feel really sad, and I'm tempted to distract myself with things like going to get frozen yogurt or watching a movie, I think it's really important to let all these emotions sink in. It makes me feel so connected and human. Have a great night. xo, R.
