BYU Bound

         It seems like yesterday that I typed "August 24 at 4:15 pm" into my little countdown and the number 76 popped up with the seconds ticking away. Every now and then I would glance back and see the days disappearing and I wondered what it would feel like when it said 30 or 20 or 10 or 1. I hit my 30 and 20 mark and I have to say that it feels absolutely crazy.    
     I'm going to college in what is now 19 days. I'm excited, but at the same time... I've never liked Ohio and the people here more. There is this quote... "It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives." So true.  
          Ohio has been a fun place (... but I have 19 days and I'm not finished yet!) and I'm sure BYU will be even more fun. Last night I described how I felt to a friend as a train slowly taking off and I'm standing behind it desperately trying to slow it down. So maybe I'm not quite ready to leave Ohio yet. We'll see when that 1 day left comes around. 

For now, this song has been stuck in my head for a few weeks now. :)
