High school ends in three days and I am extremely excited. In only a few months I will be a student at New College, which makes me so happy.
But I started thinking about the fact that I have grown so close to two people and I realized that in three months I will go from seeing them almost everyday to seeing them once every few months. And it kind of breaks my heart because this time last year, I wouldn’t have missed anyone to the extent that I will miss these two people.
“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” - Frida Kahlo
