I have an app on my iPod that counts down the days to a certain event. I remember when I first found out I’d be coming to Los Angeles I loved to watch the days count down. But now that I have less than 50 days left here, I have the opposite feeling. I hate seeing the days slip away. I feel like a cartoon character watching the hands of a giant clock ticking. I can try to hold them back, but the gears of time keep grinding forward.
Because the truth is that I am not ready to leave LA.
I was afraid this would happen; I knew I would love this city. I knew it was important to make a college plan. But I didn’t know it would be this hard to face the inevitable truth that the beginning of August, I am leaving LA. Really leaving.
Here’s what I have to look forward to:
A school that I really like.
An awesome roommate.
Classes that interest me.
Familiar faces, places, and spaces.
The opportunity to start applying everything I’ve experienced in LA, into my schoolwork and my major.
Despite all of that, I can’t seem to shake the dread of packing all my belongings and getting on that plane. Getting off the plane in Ohio. And staying.
I would appreciate prayers that I will reach a good mental space by the time it is time for me to leave, and that I will have peace as I transition into the next chapter.
A lot has happened in the last couple months, and since I haven’t been very diligent with my blogging, I decide to go back on my earlier words about not having a second post with pictures. Here, rather than reading a novel, you may look at the the thousand words instead 🙂
So that’s a little bit about me lately!
And I plan on making memories and being fully present here all the way up until the day I leave. I appreciate all your thoughts and support; they mean A LOT to me ❤
Until next time,
