Thursday, August 21, 2003

Okay. So, I've been packing a lot. Err... I've been pretending to pack a lot. I've been procrastinating a real lot.

Because I'm leaving tomorrow.

TOMORROW!!! For college! Except, I'm not old enough for college. I'm 12. I'm twelve years old and in sixth grade. There is no way I'm 18 years old and going to college. In Iowa. Who picks to go to college in Iowa?!

I'm meeting my roommates tomorrow evening (we move in Saturday morning) at the Dari Barn right outside of [---town] Iowa. The Dari Barn, they spell it like that. I'm going to college in a Iowa, in a town that doesn't even have it's own Dari Barn, I have to go right outside of town to get to the Dari Barn.

And, ack. I don't know. I'm going to college. It's so weird. I can't get over that fact. Because, after college, everything will be different. I won't be a kid, I'll be an adult. And I'll have to make money. And that means I'll have to get a real job, and not just my camp counseling job which pays next to nothing. And I'll have to do my own laundry. And go grocery shopping. And remember to return my books to the library. (Every time I check something our from the library I end up with a humongous fine because I forget to return it.) Every single thing I get I will have to pay for with my own money (and for that reason, I am determined to go for as long as I can without getting a car). I won't be able to grab a dollar from the change bin, because any change in the bin will be mine! I won't be able to ask my mom to take me shopping, because even if I do, I'll have to pay for my own clothes! (Well, maybe not always, but most of the time).

And one of the most annoying things is, every adult I talk to is like, "so, watch out for that freshman 15". Blahblahblah. I don't want to gain 15 pounds! I really don't think I'll gain 15 pounds, but everyone else is convincing me that I will.

And my friends are all leaving too, which is weird. One of them just leave of University of Illinois the other day. One of them will soon leave for Israel (yeah, the country) in a few weeks. She's not going to be back until next June.

And it's not like I don't feel ready. I feel completely ready. I have had more than enough of high school and am ready to move on to college and be able to study what I want to study. And I am ready to move on from my friends too. It's just that, I don't feel old enough. Oh well.


*I wrote this yesterday, but I never posted it. Now I posted it and I'm leaving. Bye-bye house. Bye-bye room. Hello everything else*

One of my friends was over, watching me pack. As she was leaving she looked over at the kitchen counter, which had a peach sitting on it.
Friend: That looks squishy, is it squishy?
Me: I don't know...
*She pickes it up and squeezes it*
Friend: Oh! It's a peach!!
Me: Yeah...

Tonight we had a goodbye-[R]dinner. Family came over to say goodbye to me.

My uncle said:
"You may be saying goodbye to a daughter, but we're loosing a babysitter!"

My cousin walked into my room. My room had just about all the clothes I own piled on my bed, and bags and bags of other random stuff all over the floor. She said:
"[R], your room is such a mess I can't even clean it."
