Dear World,

Things I will miss when I leave for college: Part 4

Camping.

 

 

 

 

A week tomorrow I leave for school.  I’m going CRAZY, I want to be there now! Most of my friends are off to school and for a whole week I have to entertain myself.  This means lots of running, reading and watching Pride and Prejudice.  Oh, and packing, packing, packing!

Sincerely,

Shea

Dear World,

I present to you, Things I will miss when I leave for college: Part 2.

My best friends.  Some I have known since I’ve entered this world, others since junior high.  All I know is they are incredible people and I’m going to miss them, bucket loads.

  • I’ll miss having thousands of random sleepovers with Amy and Sara where we do nothing but watch disney movies and drive around aimlessly for the heck of it (whilst shouting at strangers that we love them as we whiz by).
  • Working out every morning with Jessika having the conversations that only we can have.
  • Going to free movies with Amster, buying candy at the convienant store because theatre candy costs an arm and a leg as well as your first born.
  • Making doll houses with Sara, I won’t attempt to elaborate…
  • Going bowling with the gang, even though I am a horrible bowler and no amount of practice will ever make perfect.
  • Hiking with the perfect group of random people.  It’s always more fun.
  • Going grocery shopping with A & S.  It may just be food shopping, but you’d be surprised at how easily entertained we can be.

There is a million more things I’ll miss.  When I come home, many of these things will pick up right where they left off.  But life changes, so I’m cherishing all the memories up until this point.

Sincerely,

Shea

Dear World,

I have exactly one month until I will be in college.  As of September 5th, I will be a college student, living in Boston, starting a new chapter of my life.  As Hallmark as this all sounds, it’s my reality and I cannot wait.  I’m such a collegiate, ha ha.  To celebrate these last few weeks I thought about doing something like BEDA (blog everyday August) but I know there are some days where I will not be available to blog (ie: my camping trip).  So to make it more realistic and enjoyable I’m just going to be “blogging as much as I can”.  These posts may vary from what I will miss, to what I am buying to my dorm.  What can I say?  I’m a documentor, I like remembering things.

So to celebrate day one I thought I would list the things that I will actually miss about this small Maine town that I live in.

  • I’ll miss the fact that no matter where I go (the grocery store, the gas station, the lake etc.) there was always someone I knew, whether it was a classmate, a parent or a coach.
  • I’ll miss the beautiful trees and lakes that I have been surrounded by my entire life.
  • I’ll miss driving, as crazy as that sounds I really will.  Though I will be happy not to have to drive 40 minutes just to get to a mall or a coldstone…
  • I’ll miss the familiarity of my neighborhood, living next to the crazy old man, running past the psychotic dogs that will cease to stop barking, the kids that begin screaming at 7:00 a.m., the hum of the lawnmowers and the crickets on perfect summer days.
  • I’ll miss sitting out on my lawn, book in hand, feeling the wind as it swims through my hair (poetic, eh?).
  • I’ll miss my best friends that I’ve known since birth, and others I’ve known since our awkward junior high phases.
  • I’ll miss some incredible teachers that made school fun and taught me that a sense of humor is important.
  • I’ll miss my parents more than words can ever describe.
  • I’ll miss my bed, my pets and the beautiuful silent nights that come along with living in the country.

Look at me, acting as if I’ll never come home.  Pshhh.

Sincerely,

Shea
