So I’m moving to Kingsville for pharmacy school now. Mostly excited, since it’s a new start, and another step towards my goal, but at the same time, frightening. I haven’t been away from Houston for longer than a month at a time since I moved here as a kid. I’m so accustomed to big city/suburb life that I’m not sure how difficult it will be to adjust to small town/suburb life. I’ll manage somehow. At least there will be fewer distractions, or so I hope.
I seem to have more to bring up this time than when I used to dorm up at UH. I think it’s probably the thought that I’m not coming back every weekend that’s causing this. I don’t think I ever realized how much… stuff… I owned. Most of which are things that invoke old memories with friends and family. It reminds me exactly how blessed and fortunate to have met all those I have met in the past 21 years of my life. To those of you that fall into the above category, you have my sincere thanks and gratitude.
The most common question I’ve gotten in the past month was “So what were you up to for the last few months/weeks? It’s like you disappeared off the face of the Earth after school ended!”
For those I didn’t have a chance to answer, I’m sorry. To make it up, here’s a short recapitulation:
1) I went to San Antonio with Cougar Kendo to volunteer for the AUSKF Iaido Camp.
2) Went to Las Vegas with family for my father’s birthday, Fathers’ Day, and the HP Tech Forum.
3) Went to Lake Charles with a few friends in celebration of our turning 21.
I could elaborate more, but honestly, it’s 2 AM. I have seven hours before driving. I really should sleep :/
