Saying Goodbye

Josh Kramer on Thursday, 21 May 2009. Posted in Academic Calendar, Coursework, Residence Life

Finals week is almost over! I had a physics final yesterday afternoon, and that was the end. I am officially done with my first year of college! It feels like just yesterday I was unloading the car at orientation, and I'm about to load up the car now to go home.

It's really sad walking through my dorm, seeing all of the empty rooms and blank walls. During the year the walls are decorated by the RAs, and everyone has a nametag on their door. Now a lot are empty. The paper legos and nametags made the place feel like home; now it just feels like an empty hallway.

I know I have to go home, but I really don't want to. As people leave I realize how much I'm going to miss them, and how much I can't wait to come back next year.

Instead of focusing on how sad it is to be leaving, I'm going to look forward to my summer and next year. One of my former high school teachers has invited me on a field trip to the Boston Museum of Science as a chaperone. I'm really excited to go, partly because it is free and partly to talk to him about all the cool stuff I learned this year. He has also asked me to be an official substitute teacher for him on June 5th. Since I want to eventually become a high school math teacher, this is a really good opportunity.  Plus, I'll get $80, which I can't complain about.

I should go pack my room up. My dad will be here tomorrow and I should be ready to load the car then. 6 hours in the car on Saturday!
