Summer's End

It's Saturday night. I leave on Tuesday evening. Where the hell has the summer gone?

For a while, in the middle, it felt like it was going on forever - maybe that was because we were working nonstop and everyone was having periods of getting cranky. At that point, I thought that I couldn't get home soon enough - I was homesick. Now, it's almost like I'll be leaving what's become a new sort of home.

I take a while to really get acclimated to new people and a new place - and now that I have, it feels almost like I'll be going back in time. Sure, I'm excited to see friends and family again - but I think I'll also be a little bit in shock, going from seeing these people day in and day out to not at all. There won't be a Tiffany to spring into gear whenever someone is hurt or sick; there won't be Renee to have silly, pointless conversations with a million times; there won't be Ris and her refreshingly candid conversation; Bree insisting I need to get laid; Jess being silly and lighthearted; Jen getting into some silly get-ups; there won't be anyone there whose presence has been a constant these past few months.

This past week has had some of the best days of my life. Fun adventures, ridiculous conversations, and some of the coolest people I've ever had the pleasure of getting to know.

I don't know if any of you will ever read this, but I love you guys to death, and I hope it won't be too long before I get to see you all again.

Here's to Porthouse, 2010.
