Ah, the blanks of Summer

Today is my last full day living in Colorado for a long time (perhaps forever). I’m not feeling mopey or anything, but I occasionally get these strangely nostalgic flashes of “this is the last time you’ll see ____” as I’m walking around. Man, those were some great blanks. 😉 Not that I have much time to walk around today.
I have to finish packing, clean the bathroom, and probably clean the kitchen. I don’t want to leave Katherine with all the cleaning– that would be pretty jerky of me (and no matter how good I would taste, I still have to do it). Then all the little things like paying the last bills, yada, yada, yada.

So am I looking forward to California? Oh yeah. New people, new home, new chances to learn, ocean to explore, and te chance to finally become what I’ve dreamed of since I was like twelve years old.

Okay, I’ll admit that it’s entirely possible that I am the last person to learn about this website*, but it’s really addictive.
