Jenna read Jonathan’s letter tonight at church, but she must have thought it was funny because she didn’t seem to take it too seriously.
We went to Christi’s tonight. Christi and I played cards and we all ate while watching some musical. I had fun. And Christi and Amy made up. Don’t worry about why they were at odds, it’s over now.
Well, it’s set. Everything is clear with everyone. I just have to say goodbye. I have 24 days remaining. The 27th of August is actually my last day because I leave real early on the 28th.
It seems like I’m just waiting. There isn’t much for me to do.
Joel wants Marcus and I to spend the night with him Saturday night. Hopefully we’ll have a good time. Cheryl is in Ohio, but she should be back within a week. Jason will be back in two weeks. Jonathan leaves for college on the 21st, a whole week before me.
I can’t believe we haven’t gone swimming at Megan and Shelly’s yet. I hope to get to see Nana, Trish, and Brian at least once more. The same with Kristen, Hannah, Bradley, Glenn, Lisa, Tony, Leslie, Kim, and Kenny.
Misty was staring at me in church tonight.
I haven’t seen Scott in a while.
The Neals are in Tennessee.
Jenna and Tenielle are themselves. I still hug them.
Ryan and Amy? Well, I know where they live.
Veronica? I will stop by and give her one last hug.
And I will drive by my High School one last time. I might even call a few people from there.
I’ll go to Kiwanis Park and San Lee Park. I’ll look in th window at Mr. Gatti’s, and remember the Valentine’s dance that Jenna and Tenielle went to, as well as the one I went to with Veronica.
I’ll listen to some of our old skit music once again and I may even try on my old uniform.
I’ll walk the railroad tracks again and I’ll serve more people at McDonald’s while everyone calls me “Fry Guy!”
I’ll go skating one last time this Monday, I hope. And I just might borrow the roller blades, again.
I will sing background vocals in front of my church, and play my different mime character in Faith Street.
And I will remember how long I’ve been here and all of the things I’ve seen. I’ll remember Freeze and Justify. I’ll remember all of my Carowinds trips. I’ll remember Brandon.
The best days of my life.
U & I.

Perhaps I was right.
