|I have 12 days left.|
Things I will miss:
Having a car.
Living on campus.
Late night impromtu Bdubs trips.
The two boys who watch over me of me like a little sister, make me laugh every day, and treat me like a gem.
The most chivalrous boy I may ever meet, his kindness, and our frequent baseball banter.
(Stacy and I never were very good at making friends with girls here. Not really at all. Period. Ever. It's kind of the running joke.)
Being half an hour away from some of my best friends.
The Current radio station.
Being able to drive to church in less than 10 minutes.
Having a computer at every workout station, and having Hulu entice my workouts.
As superficial as this sounds, I really like the Mall of America.
The Noodles and Company two blocks from my dorm.
See, the thing is, I'm not leaving because I'm unhappy. I don't have a long list of "Things I Won't Miss" (although there are a few!) I'm leaving because I want to take the bull by the horns and start dreaming out loud, and right now, Chicago is that tool. Sometimes you need to let go of good things and being comfortable to let the great life-changing things happen. Even if that means being uncomfortable for a little while in the process.
And while I'll miss these things,
I know that the impromptu Bdubs runs will be replaced by new late night traditions. I know the awesome people I will miss will still be in my life, and I'll be able to meet all kinds of new people who will be able to teach me so many new things and look at life from a different perspective.
I know that having to commute to school will force me to regulate my routine better.
I know that taking public transportation will teach me patience, timeliness, and provide a daily dose of eclectic people watching.
And finally, I know that not having Hulu everytime I work out will give me motivation to find new ways to workou...... HA who am I kidding. That will make me lazier. I'm an idealist and a realist, not completely unrealistic! :]
Hah, take that BEDA. A real post!
