Summer? So far so good
Well, this summer
I’ve been trying to do as much as possible. Work as much as possible, see as
many friends as possible, play with my dogs as much as possible, and make fun
of my parents (while reminding them I love them) as much as possible. This
whole leaving and going to college thing is going to change the dynamics of our
relationships. I fear my parents won't function correctly for a few months,
leaving my dogs to miss a meal...or four.
I am so nervous,
so excited, so anxious, almost nauseous, and slightly terrified really. I go to
college in 55 days!...not that I’m counting...the anticipation is killing me. On one hand I’m ready to go, I mean like Spartan-warrior ready. On the other hand I want to do that
“get-away-from-me-kick-dance” that Stewart does on MadTV.
I have so many
questions. Do you know about “public bathrooms?” Do you know what people do in
there? They wash their bodies! Naked! I don’t know how I feel about this. I
don’t know where those bodies have been! What about my roommate? What about the
small stuff, like what if we don’t like the way each
other smells? Not like both of us reek, but what if our scents just don’t get
along? Will that be awkward? Am I the only one who thinks of things like this?
Probably...but still these are important matters by golly. And I am not panicking,
Yet with all
these questions, I still find myself writing and re-writing my “Stuff for
College List”, price-checking everything I want about every two days, and
slowly separating out my clothes for college. I’m actually getting in shape before track season. Bizarre right? Oh I don’t know! I guess I just want to be
prepared. I know I can’t prepare for everything, but I like to try. I’m pretty
sure everything is going the way it should and that I'll arrive at Centre
exactly the way I’m supposed to. Perhaps I need to add “relax as much as
possible” to my "As Much As Possible” list from earlier.
