Monday the 20th

Strange thoughts on this night in East Lansing. Wandering minds are a dangerously wonderful thing. How does one go about saying goodbye to so many people?

Knowing that I am soon leaving and realizing that there are many people who I will never see again has put me into a weird state of mind. I waffle between nostalgia, excitement and nervousness…mostly all at once. In reality, despite the fact that there are many people I want to see one last time, there are a few people I really truly need to see before I go. I believe this would be a similar feeling for anybody who was to go far, far away for a long, long time. In middle school I heard the saying that if you have 5 really good friends then you are lucky. I guess that makes me lucky.

I suppose my feelings can all be summed up by her. She needs no name. She is just her.

Her is the proverbial microcosm for pretty much everything I want to say

I want to see her one last time before I go and our paths possibly separate for the last time. This may not be possible. I maintain a sense of calm and peace though. Our last encounter put to rest a number of questions I had, and while some are left unanswered and a few new ones have been aroused I hardly believe that there will ever be a time when they will all be answered. That is simply not the way life goes. All I know is that I want to see her again, but if I can’t, I still walk away happy and contented. And isn’t that all that life is about anyway…being content with who you are?

Besides, there are adventures to be had and a life that, as far as I know, I have only one shot to enjoy.

I want to do it all.

So lets just keep our feet moving forward and our eyes focused on the road ahead…

I’ll keep you posted on how this goes

  2. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Thank you!

  3. I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether this
    post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed
    about my trouble. You’re wonderful! Thanks!
