Hello. This will be the last time that I’ll be blogging from the comfort of my own bed (well, until winter break, that is). Tomorrow at approximately 7:25 AM I’ll be departing from San Diego to go 2,000 miles to Savannah, Georgia. Well, we’ll have a layover in Atlanta, but after that it’s off to Savannah!
Georgia is pretty far away.
Everybody I talk to keeps asking me, “Why are you going to Georgia?” And I guess it’s a fair question. It does seem a little random. But I am just so ready to be out of Scripps Ranch away from everybody I know and on my own. In a perfect world would I be headed to Savannah? No. Probably not. (Well, let’s be honest here. Definitely not). But that was the option I had and the school is a good one, so it made sense to go. And I am excited. The idea of a quaint town is starting to grow on me more, and I love that I get to go to art school. You know, I was having a tough time deciding between SCAD and SFSU until I went to the eye doctor and the assistant was making small talk with me about it. I told him that I was having trouble deciding, and he just said, “Why WOULDN’T you go?” And he’s right. I have this incredible opportunity and I’d be stupid to pass it up. And I’ll be fucking honest, and I know that this is bad to say and elitist and shit, but it’s my blog so I DGAF: I’m fucking glad that I’m not going to public school.
So anyways, as I sit here in my own private room, I don’t really feel nervous. Maybe a little. I guess. I’m worried about obvious things, like making friends and shit, but, I don’t know. I have a good feeling about this.
This has been such an amazing summer. Seriously. Staying out past midnight, co-ed sleepovers, first drinks, first cigarettes, good friends and good memories. Not to mention the big things, like Bye Bye Britney or our trip to Seattle. Shoutout to Josh, Forrest and Nishita for making this the best summer ever!
And naturally, it only makes leaving more bittersweet. I’m sad to be separated from good friends, and I know that this isn’t goodbye, but it’s definitely the end of something. But I’m ready for a new beginning. Let’s go.
Do you mind if I end with a Britney quote? Do you really expect anything less? (Some things will never change).
She's gonna pack her bags She's gonna find her way She's gonna get right out of this She don't want New York She don't want L.A. She's gonna find that special kiss She don't want no sleep She don't want no high Oh, like peaches 'n' cream She's gonna wish on stars and touch the sky Ah, you know what I mean She wants a good time No need to rewind She needs to really really find what she wants She lands on both feet Won't take a back seat There's a brave new girl And she's comin' out tonight She's gonna step outside Uncover her eyes Who knew she could feel so alive Her M.O.'s changed She don't wanna behave Ain't it good to be a brave girl tonight
