Well, I'm done. Done with classes. Done with my undergraduate education. Done with George Fox. Done living in a town with my closest friends. It's hard to comprehend that, but it's true.
After a weekend full of a wedding rehearsal, a bachelorette party, a graduation & a party, and a wedding, I was one tired, but loved girl. I spent the weekend with those I love most -- I was loved in many ways.
With a weekend so busy, I was lucky to have some extra days to say goodbye and move out of Newberg for good. On the sad side of things, my life was already beginning to feel the repercussions of leaving George Fox -- I had to get a new e-mail address and forward my mail home for the last time. I also had to say goodbye to those who will be returning next fall for another school year. I cried, a lot, but that's no surprise to those who know me. The tears were definitely flowing for the last month.
Will they remember me? Will they want to e-mail/call/say hi to me in the future?
I wish I could say I can count on all of my friends to stay in touch, but I haven't always been shown that. Maybe it will be different this time... I would love to be wrong.
To my friends: Hopefully we'll run into each other in the near future and the smiles and laughs will be endless. Hopefully we'll go back to the George Fox days and reminisce about good times. Hopefully you'll remember me... I know I'll remember you.
