|Save the Boxes!!
My first year of college is finally over. Geeze, what a reliefe. Now I can just go home and rest for three months. I'm so glad it's over, but then again I am looking forward to next semester. Emily and I will be rooming together in the new fancy rooms, so that's gonna rock. Awww, I'm gonna miss all my carzy Carrollton music majors, especially after tonight.
A bunch of the music majors decided to get together and go out to eat....man what a wild time.
It started when Daniel came to pick me up. That was at like 6:50 and we weren't supposed to meet at the resturant until 7:30, but we were on a mission. Since we're all packing, of course we need boxes, but don't have any, so Daniel and I went driving behind Publix and other grocery stores looking for "boxes to rescue." It was like a secret mission. We had to be careful because it's illegal to go through people's trash, and we had to make sure not to rescue any "contaminated boxes." So we're driving around and finally, we spotted some poor captive boxes. Daniel quickly pulls over and we run out of the car. It ended up the boxes already had stuff in them so Daniel yelled, "Run away!" and we ran back to the car. As soon as we got into the car Daniel was like, "I wonder if we could have dumped that stuff out." I was like, "Yeah, it all looked pretty light." So we get back out of the car and go for the boxes again. Daniel started to pick it up but it was wet so he dropped it again. We both stood there looking at it for a couple of seconds and then Daniel yelled, "Run away," and we went running across the parking lot again. So we started to drive again. I spotted some good looking boxes by a dumpster and we pulled over again. This time I got out to get it, because Daniel got his hand all icky so he was considered "wounded in action." After I got it in there car I was like, "We should get rid of this one, it smells like trash." Daniel was like, "No, it's because my breath smells so good, you think the cardboard smell smells like trash instead." I laughed and figured whatever, wasn't my car that was gonna smell like trash in the morning. We got one more box that said cheese on it and then it was time to go. All the way to the resturant Daniel was talking to the boxes. He was saying things like "Shh, it's okay...you're safe now." It was so funny.
We got to the resturant and I sat with Jermey. We had a pretty good time and talked about a lot of stuff. I like Jeremy, he's one of those people you just get along with right off the bat. He's switching schools in the fall, meaning I won't be seeing him here at West Georgia anymore. I told him he would absolutly have to come and hang out with me this summer and on the weekends when school starts back up. Awww, I'm gonna miss him.
Fianlly the night was over. Daniel and I were quiet, because our little boxes were sleeping. Daniel said he was gonna feed them as soon as he got home. I told him that the one that said cheese might like cheese....or it has a realtionship with cheese, and that might be canibalistic. He decided against the cheese. You really feel like you've done something after you've saved a box.
Tomorrow my daddy and Carolyn (step-mom) are coming to pack up my things and then I'm leaving for home. Emily is going to come and help too.
I'm going to miss everyone so much. I almost want to say that I'm going to miss this place, but I feel that it's time for me to go home for a while. Come fall I'll be ready to come back. It's like the most amazing balance.
Carrollton and Gwinnett...and the most amazing friends that anyone could ever, ever ask for.
Everything is so beautiful.
Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap
It's time to try
I think I'll try
And you can't pull me down
I'm through accepting limits
'Cuz someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost
I'd sooner buy
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
And you can't pull me down
