I’m spending the last saturday before summer ends at home in bed. I’m relieved because I definitely didn’t have the motivation after the banshee bash last night.
my last first day of school begins monday! whenever a transitional period is within reach, it brings a wave of bittersweet feelings. I love the friends and memories I’ve made, the campus is beautiful, and corvallis has a lot of amazing things to offer. but the dating scene is lackluster and the perpetual nights of partying at the same places wears on you after awhile. luckily I’m working and school is starting up so I can do more with my life than party. I’m gonna miss this place a lot and I don’t know how I’m going to feel as I get closer and closer to leaving. the reality hasn’t really hit me yet. I hope that everyone decides to move to the portland area because college friends are probably the best friends you’ll ever have.
If I’ve learned one thing by living in corvallis, it’s that it’s the people who make life fun, not the environment. amazing people can make even the shittiest environment tolerable. for example, if in portland, none of us would ever be caught dead in a bar like harry’s. yet somehow, that’s one of the funnest places we go. people make all the difference.
