The end of my Junior year that is!
So as I start the last week of classes at PC, I can’t help but find it bittersweet. After all, Junior year feels like it just started and now it’s almost over! As the next two weeks come to a close, the summer begins and so does my time being a Senior.
Wow, I’m going to be a Senior. Crazy right? It feels like yesterday that I moved into Raymond Hall, into a triple, as a freshman. So much has changed, but one thing has stayed consistently the same. I still love Providence as much as I did when I got here three years ago.
This, I’ve found, is a rare thing. Many of my friends are excited to leave their colleges and get away from their mundane lives. But me? I’d be perfectly contently staying here forever (if only!). I have a few friends staying in the area over the summer, and I am definitely going to be using them as excuses to visit PC.
But, as all great life changing things do, they come to an end. This means we must enjoy the time we have left, and embrace every moment like it’s the last. I will be partaking in many goodbyes in the next few weeks (something I am not looking forward to) but it is not all goodbyes. Tomorrow and Wednesday I will be saying a few hellos as well!
Two of my best friends in the world, one being my roommate and another being someone I’ve known since the first week of Freshman year, are coming back from their semester abroad. I can’t eloquently state how excited I am to see them. The past few months have been life changing and breath taking for them, and as much as it stunk to not have them around I was glad they had the opportunity. But now? Well now I’m going to plan out my slow motion run at them (just like the movies) and I am planning our excursions and shenanigans for the next two weeks.
Even when things come to an end, new beginnings arise. So with the newness of summer ahead of us, and two of my favorite people coming back, I can’t wait to see what the next two weeks bring!
Have a great week everyone!
