Okay. Maybe not so much like that but I just couldn't resist.
I'm talking about my senior year of college!!
Please, someone come console me with ice cream and wine and snuggle for me while I have to face this harsh reality.
This whole past week has been full of emotions. While we have been preparing for recruitment to welcome our new baby 17s (still trying to accept this too), I have begun to realize all sorts of "last firsts" that will happen during my senior year. In poms during my senior of high school this was a constant saying for EVERYTHING. Now this has a whole new meaning.
It was my last first day of work week. My last first day of spending 12 hours a day with my sisters and bonding in ways we could ever imagine. My last first day of moving back to campus that has become my home for the past 3 years. I could honestly babble on and on about all of the "last firsts" that I have experienced and will experience for the next 9 months.
I thought high school went by fast. But that fact that it's been 3 years since I moved into my dorm freshman year, even though I'm pretty positive that it happened just yesterday, astounds me.
I have a lot of changes happening in my life within the next year. Am I scared as all hell about it? Absolutely. But am I embracing the change and excited about what's to come? 500%
