May can be summed up in one word: whirlwind. Everything has changed, ended, begun, continued, stopped, started…. Everything is the same but everything is different.
I moved away from JBU, Siloam Springs, and my first “house.”
I moved home.
I realized I am a nerd and an athlete.
I had a week of random and mostly unidentifiable anxiety.
I went to and played in DIII Ultimate Frisbee Nationals in Appleton, Wisconsin.
I played my last game as a college ultimate frisbee player.
I added two states to my travel list: Wisconsin and Iowa.
I leave for a new adventure tomorrow.
I have spent and will continue to spend far too many hours in a car.
Whirl away May.
I am a college graduate, as of May 8, 2010.
I am happy and content. I’m sad to leave this season, these friends, this time of my life. But this season is over and it’s time for a new setting.
And to any friends reading this…you’re stuck with me. In all the change that is swirling around us…we’re still friends.
I have more words about this whole graduation business, but not now. It’s time to rest.
Good job May. Keep it up.
Well that was interesting. April had mixed results. And May just suddenly appeared as I drove through Texas. Well, as I rode in a 15-passenger van through Texas.
If you’d told me a year ago that I would have gone to 5 Ultimate Frisbee tournaments as a PLAYER, I would have said you were insane. Instead, I am insane.
April could have been better…but it was mostly better than March. So Jackson trip, consider yourself to have happened in April because I would like you to not be associated with March 2010.
In April I finished my senior project, had a lovely birthday, presented my senior project, creatively wrote a short story, and finished my undergraduate career with the exception of finals week. Some unpleasant things happened too.
So May, you’re going to be different. I have different expectations of you. Mostly because I have no idea what May will do. Everything’s about to change. Which is both fabulous and horrifying. I hope it’s more fabulous than horrifying.
On an unrelated note, I found digestives at World Market. !!! Digestives are British tea cookies. And they’re amazing. And I don’t understand why there isn’t a World Market any closer than 5 hours away from me. Just like I don’t understand why there are no Half Price Books near me.
