Do you guys remember how honest we used to be here? How we weren't afraid to speak our true (TEENAGE ANGST) feelings and use full names?

Crazy huh?

Remember that time I just read my LJ in its entirety over the span of a week? 5.5 years of my life in a week. That's intense!

When looking at pictures... sometimes they'll remind me of a moment. That will remind me of a time, when things were completely different.

This usually happens and I remember how close I used to be someone.
I know it's impossible to be close to everyone forever... but this memory usually leaves me feeling the void.

I think this is also why I'm trying so so hard to stay close to some of my friends who are still at Hollins. I don't want to lose all of those connections.

I also miss making fast friends, like we did at Hollins. I've made a couple of friends here... but even after like 2 months, I still don't know some of the basics about them, nor them about me.

Well, this is properly emo. I guess I just miss being really close to a lot of people.

5 Good Things About Today: (Well, I'll use the last 24 hours, since good things happened last night!)

*Candy Corn
*The fall-tastic weather
*Running into a co-worker and a new gym acquaintance at the gym last night
*New shoes waiting for me when I get home!
*Making mix CDs for people

For the past month and a half I have been wanting to just run into someone I know... randomly in the the DC Metro either. Hasn't happened. The minute I get home, and finish dinner at the Bistro, I step outside and there's Jacobi.

It's so weird how NOTHING has changed. I haven't been away long enough. It was weird for a few minutes, but after I passed Hollins, it felt like I never left. Being on campus just felt like being on campus in the summer... which is exactly what it was. But I don't feel out of place there yet. It's going to take coming back after the new senior class has taken the reins. Ooooh that'll be rough.

I guess that's an argument against Roanoke... that it never changes. But it's just home. I felt at home as soon as I got here.
I miss it, and it's good to be here. But I hope I can put all the missing it behind me when I leave it again.

I think I might hold off on visiting again until fall... we'll see.

Slowly I'll let go of Roanoke... who knew I loved it /would miss it so much?

It's so weird how many different parts of my life are coming together in the DC Metro area... there are so many of my high school/Salem friends up there combined with all of my Hollins friends. I have a feeling the next couple of years are going to be quite the adventure. :)

Remember that time that I was done with college?
And got an A on my psychology Honors Thesis

Also, I realize that the people at this school are the most amazing people I've ever met.

And my Christy is here.

My life feels SO COMPLETE right now.

I found a job that I would be perfectly qualified for on Craigslist yesterday, so I've been doing some serious work on my cover letter and resume. I talked to both Sue in the CDC and Amy, who used to do Sue's job but is now my boss.

In doing these things, I realize more and more every day that I really am becoming the person I want to be. They both keep telling me all these really awesome things about myself that I didn't realize at all. I have grown and developed at Hollins. It's really true that this place turns us into incredible outgoing, personable, strong women.

I can't believe it's almost over. I mean, I'll be at Hollins until the first weekend in June so I've got physical time, but it's almost over. Today was the last day of classes in my undergraduate career. Last class at Hollins, EVER.

I added my Abnormal Psych text to my giant stack of psych books and just stopped and looked at that stack. That is my education. That's my BA. Right there, on the shelf. It feels a little incomplete without Jacobi, but that's ok. It could have been worse.

I turn in my thesis tomorrow...
And for some reason I can't get a grasp on any of it. I feel like I'm floating through it in a bubble and not actually making contact with it. I think it will hit me once it's all over. There will be some nostalgic moments here and there... but as a whole, it will be a while until it hits me.

On a different note- I think one of the most important things I've learned recently is what real, true love is. I've never been willing to be so selfless as I am with her. She makes me believe that it can be easy to make someone happy. And to not be afraid to say certain things or do certain things. I can be myself completely with her. She renewed my belief in love. Just looking at her makes me feel warm and comfortable and at home. And no matter how yucky I feel, being beside her makes me feel better instantly. I realize every single day how lucky I am. And I want to hold onto it for as long as I can.

Now, let me try my hand at the things I don't have to do game:

*sort my photos by the color of the clothes the people are wearing
*mow back quad
*join a girl-pop band and play keytar
*be barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen
*find someone to be frenifits with... hey guys, do you think I have a shot with Cait?
