Jessica and I camped out on top of a small hill west of Hemlock Hill. We didn’t sleep in a tent; we slept under the stars. It was a beautiful evening where we ate an entire box of Wheat Thins and talked about the simple joys of life. I don’t think I’ve ever known a more delightful girl.
On Friday, Vince and I moved some of my stuff into Tennessee dorm. At 3 o’clock, I left with Amy and Derek to drive down to Charlotte where we visited Abigail’s family and saw STOMP. It was a completely amazing experience. I had a relaxing time just riding in the car and listening to music as well. I haven’t had a car at all during these three years of college and I’m so thankful I haven’t. To depend on others, to hear new music, to stare out the window as the car hums beneath me; oh I love it so.
I slept in this morning and Allen helped me move more stuff this afternoon. We went to see Joseph again tonight. Marjorie was there. I’ve been running into her a lot recently.
Graduation is tomorrow. I leave on Monday. I believe mom and I will visit some family in Waynesville.
I’m only taking some clothes, my Bible, and my Book of Days home with me. I don’t own much, but I don’t even want to bring that with me. I’m leaving my stereo, music, and other stuff here. I just want to see who I really am. I don’t want to be around my usual surroundings for a while. I just want me, the Holy Word, and a blank sheet of paper in this notebook.
