This week was the official end of my summer. On Wednesday, Brian packed up his stuff and left for his new apartment. Part of me was so sad to see him go, but another part was really excited for him that he finally has his own place. He seems to really like it down there, and I couldn’t be happier for him.
I planned to leave on Thursday, but instead of spending Wednesday packing, I spent it doing fun stuff and tying up loose ends. I got my car inspected and I went out to lunch with my mom and some family friends. I bought my dad a birthday present. I went and looked at a house with my mom. I ate China King with my family (minus my mom) on my last night at home. After dinner I played with my brother’s new flip video camera by performing Disney songs with my other brother. We’re obviously really cool. Then I made an appearance at a neighborhood gathering and got to say goodbye to some of my friends. I rounded out my last night by watching Beauty and the Beast with my brothers and my brother’s girlfriend. It was a really fun last day at home.
I haven’t really accomplished very much since being at school. I’m mostly unpacked, and I went grocery shopping yesterday. Grocery shopping is much more daunting this year because I don’t have a meal plan. I sense some food posts will happen later in the semester. I’ve been going to the gym and I’ve been going out at night. Until today I was alone in my apartment, which I thought might be nice, but it was actually really lonely. I ended up sleeping at my friend’s apartment the last two nights, because I didn’t really want to walk home by myself. I’m glad to have my roommates back.
It’s been fun to be reunited with my friends, and then my roommates today. Some of my friends brought me back stuff from the cool places they went over the summer, which was so exciting and really sweet of them! I’m glad to be back, but it’s been a hard transition. I’m really never good at transitioning between school and home, although going from home to school at the end of the summer is always the most difficult. I miss Brian a lot and I’m trying not to bug him too much to let me visit him… but I think I’ve failed at that already, haha. I’m trying to lay low in my apartment today because it’s freshman move-in day, and I’m afraid of what the traffic is like.
Speaking of freshman move-in, my little brother is moving in to his first college dorm today! I’m sending good thoughts his way today, although I’m not sure it’s working because last I heard they were still stuck in traffic. Good luck, little bro!
