My weekend and my time is over. I am wrapping up the final bits and pieces of my small little world that has been created over the past four years here in Syracuse. When my worlds do smash and mix together like the nasty cheap alcohol and soda combinations known to many Syracuse students I get confused, excited, and sad all at the same time. When family or friends visit that happens. Just like a kid with too much sugar. I have built up this small existence here in Syracuse that hasn't blended or touched with anything from home, and I slowly have become home here. I remember the newness of the college and the area around Syracuse. I remember how different it was and how out of place I felt. I struggle with letting things go, and I get attached to the oddest little things. That is probably why packing my room was such a ridiculous feat this weekend. I am sad. I am happy. I will always remember this place and this world I have lived in for four years. I have had the chance of a lifetime to build something and experience something many others never will or have the chance to experience. I am lucky and I have wrapped up my experience. I don't know when I'll be back.
It's coming. My family arrives tomorrow, and before I know it this weekend will be over and I'll be in my car driving across the country. I've met many people since I've been here at Syracuse, and also during my travels since I have started at Syracuse. Here is a solid group that I have enjoyed spending my last and most "College" college year with. Cheers to you guys, and I hope our paths cross soon. (Also this is a cool picture... and I need to buy a remote for my camera so I don't have to awkwardly run into the picture anymore)
