7 days from today I have to grow up. Sort of...I think. Haha I leave for Michigan and drive for four days to my new life. Well my life for the next four years. As it gets closer and closer I'm getting so incredibly excited. Last night with Abbey I looked up all the different places that are near my new home in Ann Arbor, like New York, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Chicaco, St. Paul, Washington D.C. and they're all super close! I'm so excited to be close to those places and experience this whole new culture that is the North country as my dad calls it ha. It has also hit me however that I don't know some things. For example I was sitting in the car with my dad and realized I have no idea how to take care of a car in cold weather. No idea whatsoever. At all. Ha and he started to tell me then got distracted by the different places I need to take my car this week. I still have no idea about grad school, what I'll be researching or what classes I need to take but I'm not so worried about that. I'm pretty sure my advisor is really involved and will help me out with that. Other than the not knowing though, I'm really excited about starting this new 'job' and starting school again. I'm excited to learn new things. Another thing that I am SUPER excited about is the cool fact that I got season tickets to Michigan football. I LOVE football and I think it's going to be so cool to go to those crazy games. I'm excited to be in a college town and move into a new place and have a new home and explore a new town. It's going to be so much fun I think!

Also kind of sad about everything I'm leaving. Well not everything because I'm not leaving things but I am leaving people. It's nice because I've been able to see so many people before I leave but I'm still sad I'm leaving. So! They all had better come visit me in Michigan. It is strange though to realize the people that I miss. Some people I didn't expect to miss I miss a lot, and other people I don't miss so much. It's a funny realization. But it's really amazing to feel this nostalgia I guess for leaving because it reminds me of the amazing people I have in my life and that they are so quality that I do miss them immensly when I leave. So this is just my little shout out that while I miss you so much, I miss you because you're flippin amazing! Loves! And here's to growing up!

Yay for growing up! You're quite a fine grown up, if I do say so myself.

And I certainly hope I'm not on the "people I'm surprised I don't miss" list . . . ;)

Well thank you : ).

Of course not! I miss you just as much as I thought I would. (Which is a ton by the way!)
