Last Post From Illinois

Today was kind of a bittersweet day. I'm leaving for college tomorrow, so basically my life here is packed up in boxes and sitting in my dorm room in Milwaukee. I'm in no hurry to leave but at the same time, I want something to happen. And it sure ain't happening here. I said goodbye to everybody last night, but I caught up with a couple of my closest friends for breakfast this morning. We got to Maid-Rite at about 10. We ordered, ate and talked for a while. Unfortunately they all had 11 o'clock classes at Rock Valley so they had to leave around 10:30. We said our goodbyes and went to our cars and that's when it hit me. These people I normally hang out with three or four times a week, I won't be seeing for weeks at a time.

I apologize for being so sappy. Hopefully next time you hear from me, I'll be raving about my new school.
