Fresh Start

August 16, 2012

The end of summer is approaching and thoughts of school are beginning to stir in people's heads. Tonight is my last night at home. Apartment life beckons me and so tomorrow bright and early I shall answer it's call. I suppose I could sit hear and reflect upon growing up and moving on toward the future and blah blah blah, but I think I have done enough of that already.

The future is calling and a new life is waiting for me in a place I can call mine. But before I think about the future I am going to enjoy right now. The middle of the night, when everyone but myself and my cat are asleep and everything is quiet. I try not to think about anything because the resurfacing of old memories seems to bring tears. So, I just sit. It would seem like a normal night just like any other, and it is. It just happens to be my last one here. I will be back to visit my family and for holidays and maybe an occasional weekend, but my heart and soul now belong somewhere else. And while it is going to take me some time to adjust to a new world, it will welcome me with warms arms.

So as the night ends and I fall asleep I dream about those warm arms and hope that they are waiting when I wake up. Starting new tomorrow, starting fresh.
