Movin' On With the Rest of Your Life...

Sad day. My good friend Becca left Provo forever today to work in D.C. I hate good-byes! All of us got together last Wednesday at Chili's for a final dinner group shin-dig. It was fun (and let me tell ya - the food was delicious! Chicken Fried Steak is AMAZING!) and we all had a great time, but it was really sad for me. With Becca leaving today, my roommate Brooke moving out Wednesday then leaving for Taiwan and me leaving for Seattle next week, I don't know if I can handle all the goodbyes. I'd be okay if I was coming back at the end of the summer, but after Seattle I'm planning on being gone for 18 months and I won't see these girls for 2 years. It's a very hard thing for me to deal with, let me tell ya.

And to make matters worse - Becca came over last night to say goodbye because I was going to be on campus all day today. She was busy so she didn't get to stay long, and then we said goodbye and that was it. I was getting pretty teary-eyed! Like I said - I HATE goodbyes! I had this big ol' lump in my throat and couldn't talk and it was just terrible! Then this morning I'm walking to the bus stop and there's Becca! So I'm thinking, "Great - I have to go through that again?!" It was actually really good to talk to her for 15 minutes, but it just made it that much harder. Luckily I was in public and able to control my emotions - but it was a close call.

So, now I'm all kinds of sad getting ready for everyone, including myself, to leave. Growing up and moving on with your life is very bitter-sweet. Why do things have to change?

So, here we all are Chili's for our last dinner. Tiffany, me, Jess, Victoria, Brooke, Becca and Janeen. I love those girls - I don't know what I would have done without them this year. Die, probably. :D

So, reading this as we were hanging up just now, I started BAWLING cause I can not handle not being able to talk to you for 18 months! I'm still bawling.
