Day 365 of 365 - Goodbye

Newer Older

better scan. I don't want to replace this one because it will mess up the current links.

I know this is kind of corny, but I figured it would be a good place to end what's left of my 365 days project.

It would've been ending at about this time anyway, and really, in kind of a funny twist, I'm ending it the day before I go out to Oregon for college... I started it the day before I left Oregon to fly home last year :)

It's been an interesting year (I'm going to count a little beyond the project in all of this, but I don't think it matters).

I drove across the US with my father at the beginning. I've been to twelve different US states and three new countries. I spent ten weeks on the opposite side of the earth. I've been on 13 different airplanes.

I met about a thousand new people (that's exaggerated, but not by much) and it's felt as though I've been constantly saying goodbye.

I have an amazing boyfriend who I'm going to miss very much for the next four months :)

I thought I'd developed a pretty clear concept of self, but the person who was sitting in the airport in January at 6 am, watching the snow fall in the dark and waiting to go to the Philippines, seems foreign to me now. I've been so many different things in the past year. When a familiar backdrop falls away from you, you learn a lot about yourself.

Anyway, I'm leaving for college tomorrow (Lewis & Clark, in Portland, Oregon), and while this isn't a goodbye to flickr by any means, I think it's time to put this particular project to rest. I know I was pretty sporadic for the last half of the year, but it finally felt like I was absorbed completely in life, instead of waiting to be able to stop biding my time.

And now... I need to go finish packing, since I'm leaving for the airport at 5:30 am... eek!
