I hesitate to write this final blog, only because I know I still have so much more left to experience here in Philly. My time is not up, in contrast to the majority of MCPCers. I will be staying for spring semester.
Part of me is torn by feeling sadness as my friends, my roommates, my sense of “normalcy” will be out the window within a week or so and between feeling excitement for home, a break, and then a rush of newness that spring will bring.
I have so much to look forward to: old friends who are returning to this amazing city, I will hopefully have an internship with Urban Outfitters headquarters, and more than both of those things I will have a new opportunity to spread my little wings and grow, that ever awkward sense of awakening experience I dread and love at the same time. It is painfully beautiful.
With that said, I am sorry to say that I will miss my new friends. MCPC will never be quite the same without Jackie’s laughter, without Dan’s need for late night adventures, without Chrissy and Annie’s absurdities, without the peaceful love and encouragement of Laura, without Maria talking about her trip to Russia whenever the opportunity presents itself, and without Victoria well…asleep.
Things won’t be the same, but I’m not about to get sappy and sentimental about it. We’ve gone through some stuff together, and have been made stronger for it. I am eager to see what will happen to us all after this time together is over, and I am equally excited to see what next semester will bring. The time has come to end great things and begin again anew. C’est la vie.
Thank you for reading my ramblings and musings. You have been much too kind to do so.
