a different track.

Tuesday, May 5, 2009


I did it! I graduated. I didn't fall when I walked across the stage - I made it. Here's to the next chapter. In the words of Miss Rachel Johnson -
I COMMENCED.
I saw.
I
conquered.

We did it. Three years going strong. Who would have thought.

So now, I'm sitting here, on my coffee table watching One Tree Hill, because everything else is packed, watching three movers, who know nothing about me or my roommates or the ridiculous memories they're so carelessly packing away. [And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives...Where we're gonna be when we turn 25] They don't know as that as they pack up my closet they're packing up late night outs, "I'm not going" moments, shared outfits, date outfits, matching jeans and an endless amount of hours spent debating the perfect top. they dont know that when they wrap up the wine glasses that they're packing up pre-parties, girls wine/lifetime movie nights, broken glasses and crazy parties. They don't realize the amount of hours spent in front of this massive tv, crying, laughing, celebrating or competing over mario kart on the wii. As they pack away the christmas decorations they don't appreciate the decorating party or the home baked cookies that accompanied them. They pack it all away, in brown boxes without a care in the world. [But when we leave this year we won't be coming back. No more hanging out cause we're on a different track] They don't reazlie that they're packing away years of memories, because to them it's all just stuff. But to me, its the things that made college, my home. So, I'm gonna pack it all up, put it all away, and never forget. [Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down. These memories are playing like a film without sound] So, it's over, and even as they pack away my belongings, it's not the end.
As we go on, we remember
All the times we had together
And as our lives change, from whatever
We will still be, friends forever
