I have a short break from the box office.
Abigail came to visit her circle of friends today: Ann-Marie, Jeni, and Tracey. They all came by the box office. I hugged her. I have gotten taller I suppose, for I had to reach down further than before.
It is cloudy outside now. I walked to Allen’s room this morning. It seems as though Lees-McRae College and Banner Elk do not really exist. It seems as if this place will vanish after I leave. As if all of this came into existence just so I would have a place to live for four years. I know it’s not true and I know it’s strange, but still, I feel as though this place is mine. But perhaps that is what the world needs, more people like me, who truly feel at home.
But yesterday I met so many new freshman. It saddens me that I will not be here for their entire four years. It doesn’t matter that I am remembered after I leave. It only matters that I will remember this time and this place.
