I've had one line from an old Hawk Nelson song on repeat in my mind. The song is about a breakup, I think, maybe two best friends who fell in love and found out that friendship was better after all. That's not really the point though. There's one line in the song that Jason Dunn repeats multiple times, because it's the title of the song, and also because it describes the relationship he's singing about.
"It's over, it's over, twelve days later and I can't console her..."
I took my last final yesterday. It was somewhat of a disappointment as far as finals go, considering we had to drive an hour there and an hour back so I could turn in my last drawing and collect my sketchbook. But that final, the...finality of it, doesn't escape me. It. Is. Over. All of it.
Sometimes I look over this past semester and wonder how it happened. There's a certain feel of irony about the whole situation, at least for me. I was always one of those children who wanted, and expected, to graduate at 16. That's what I was planning on for most of my life. (My brother, at this point, would probably want you to know that he thought I was going to be "Little House on the Prairie" for most of my life, but, thank goodness, I've moved on from that.) I'm obviously not graduated, but taking college classes, which, to younger me, would still equal the same thing.
There's more to this feeling of overwhelming overness, but I'll tell you more about that on the 23rd, because that's when it all officially ends in my mind.
So that's life lately.
I have a crazy-busy weekend tomorrow, provided there is a tomorrow. If not, I love you all very much, you're beautiful, and you mean the world to me.
I'm off to drink tea and read Peter Pan until I fall asleep on the couch. Sleep well, dears.
