Friday was my last day at my beloved elementary school. Although I clearly didn't want to leave, it had to be done sooner or later. And, like most people who leave such long-time friends, I cried.
Cried like there was no one around me. Cried like my whole family had died. Cried like there was no tomorrow.
I sobbed into my comforting friends' arms. They supported me through the whole emotional day. Friends truly are like another family to me. Now I just can't believe I can't walk to the one building where memories are made and see everyone I've known since kindergarten. I have to go to an extremely old building where I don't know anyone, where things are completely different from good old White Pine.
And most importantly, the environment.
The atmosphere will feel so different, hanging around kids who are probably nothing like my friends back at White Pine. Who knows if they'll treat me like I have for six years? I have so many questions roaming through my head, it would take weeks just to get through them all. Hopefully Spring Break will calm me down.
For all my friends who read this, I want you all to know that I love you, and I will miss you to the high heavens. I couldn't have earned such a great life without you. I'm so lucky to have people like you in my life.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
