I miss holy cross.

Every so often I experience the realization that I am not in fact returning to my beautiful college campus in September. Holy Cross was my home for so long, and I am truly going to miss being surrounded by friends all day. I miss that community feeling-- the one you get because you know you'll always have someone to sit with in the library. Or when you walk into the campus center and you ALWAYS see someone who makes you happy. Right at the moment I'm particularly reminiscent of the actual grounds that Holy Cross puts so much effort into keeping gorgeous. It really is one of the prettiest campuses I've ever seen, and now I'm just glad I was so thankful while I was there. I took pictures all the time because there was so much to look at, and they make me happy and sad at the same time. Here's what I mean:

I keep reminding myself that with each new chapter of life come new adventures and new excitements. I'm living quite a wonderful life right now, so it's important to remember this when I start feeling bad for myself. College was amazing, and not that you're supposed to forget it ever happened, but I have to focus on the future. I am starting a new internship at my dream company next week, and I am thrilled. Hopefully this will lead me to a whole new place from where I am right now, because while I don't love change, it's necessary in order to see what I like. I'm definitely not the only one who finds herself living in the past sometimes, I'm SURE this is pretty normal. Especially when such a new part of life begins, it's hard not to wish I were still an undergrad. My mission is to 'be here now,' and be happy with every day I am given. Life is too short, after all.
