Now Playing Tracks

And so begins our wonderful journey.  We have finally graduated from Coe College and are heading out into the wide wide world (maybe it’s a little wider for Christopher than for me, but you get the idea).
Maybe it’s just because we still have this last month together before Christopher takes off for New York, but it was hard to get too emotional today.  But there is that weird moment when it hits you: “I am never going to see these people again.”  Of course, there’s always the chance we’ll run into each other at alumni functions, or even just randomly in a Starbucks somewhere.  But there is also a chance I’ll never encounter them again.  Maybe fate has something else in store.  
I was saying bye to my friend Erin, and when I went to say goodbye it hit me.  This wasn’t just goodbye, it was goodbye.  That’s intense.  I’ll miss everyone — it won’t probably get to me until a couple months down the road, when I would normally be gearing up to move back to campus.  And even then I don’t think it will happen all at once.  But I’m sure, gradually, we all get to the place where we can’t use “I am a college student” as an excuse anymore and “I’ll be on campus, you’ll find me” doesn’t mean anything.  
So, as our journey (and this blog) begins, we shut the door on a lot of endings.  It’s sad to see them go, but exciting to see where we’ll go.  So here’s to Coe, here’s to four years, here’s to the class of 2012.  Here’s to us.
