Here in this diary, I write you visions of my summer.
It was the best I ever had.
There were choruses, and sing alongs.
And that unspoken feeling of knowing
that right now is all that matters...
So this is where I get all sappy and nostalgic about this summer.
But to be honest, I did have a lot of fun this summer. Even though there were times I complained abut how much it sucked, looking back on it now, the good times outweigh the bad.
So maybe the first month was a little...well...rough. Right after graduation Fran left for Australia, Carden left for Mexico, people were working, taking random trips away. And I'm not gonna lie here...it sucked. Cause I was sitting around, working and waiting for everyone to get back. At times I felt like I was just wasting my summer waiting for people to get back. But once I got out of that funk I actually did have fun...and it seemed to make the days go by faster. Like Kathryn said in her journal, this summer really did go by way too fast...and it was probably cause we knew what was coming. And instead of sitting around wasting time, we made the most out of each day we had...and yeah, we really did. I've gotta say, I'm going into college having no regrets about this summer and realizing that I probably have the best friends in the world right now. Maybe in college we'll meet new people, maybe even move on and never speak again. I hope that doesn't happen, but I know that I have some of the best memories with them and they mean the world to me. I'll never ever forget the times we had and even when I'm 30 if I hear "Living on a Prayer" you know I'll bust out with the singing and hand motions. Maybe it's just me, but while change does make me sad, I love the fact that even if I have moved on, even when I'm in the worst of moods, I can look back on something and it can make me smile even if it's just for a second. Call it living in the past, but it's how I deal with things. Life moves on and of course you have to move with it, but I know that there are some things I could never forget and friends that I'll always have there for me no matter what. And I like having that sort of comfort.
While I did work like a mofo this summer...I'm glad that I still got to see all of my friends before we all left. I had so many awesome times with not just The Club, but other people that I hadn't hung out with before...and we had a lot of fun. The ton of fieworks we must have set off, the late nights, stargazing, the parties, "Wednesday Night" Part Deux, Wednesday Night Part Twois, Chinese Fire Drills, driving around, sinks, Team DMal, "Two in the bed...", Steam Roller!, Dare I say....lazer pointer (lol), The bent stop sign, The golf course, rolling down hills, Swimming in fountains, ass tag, Ding dong ditch, Shaving Cream, Tubing, gosh I can't list it all. Just know I had some of the best times this summer. And I'll never forget them.
Honestly...I wish everyone the best of luck in college. It sucks we all have to go out separate ways. Senior year was probabaly one of the best years and I don't want to forget a moment of it. When I was stargazing with Fran one night we were talking about how whenever something's going really good, something always comes along to ruin it. And I feel like that's what happened. I mean, I knew college was going to happen, but things really did seem to be going awesome, then BAM. It's over. Well...not necessarily over...but things got all messed up. But hey, what can ya do? Everything happens for a reason right? But I'm going to miss everyone and I really do hope everyone has fun at college.
And with that, I say that I'm excited, and I'm so ready for college...Bring it.
