Today I did some shopping for school in the fall. I spent my entire day buying things that I will need when I go off to school. It was of course fun but yet also saddening because I realize how close I am to starting something new and leaving behind the past. All summer I have been trying to spend so much time with friends and family. I don’t want to forget the past too quickly because I know I will forget. I just dread the day I am on campus at IU in my dorm and I start to reminisce of the past and I ball my eyes out. I know I am ready though, I just have a strange coping technique. Are there any words of wisdom out there waiting to be heard because I would appreciate any that are floating out there?
