It's been quite awhile since I've joined the Five Minute Friday party! Can't wait to jump back in! Here's the deal: 5 minutes, raw and real writing. No edits. Oh and there is community. Great stuff!

Today's word? LAST.
Also, just because today is Friday and I've been a bad blogger the past two days, check back later for another new post! :)
The last time I was here was never. I feel like I'm in such a new place that it absolutely scares me. Yeah, honesty time. I really never thought about life after college. I kinda had this notion while in school that it was somehow going to last forever. Stupid. I never thought of the next step. Of actually finding a job that had to last. Of having to find a place to live. A life to start that was all my own.
And now here I am. Out of school, fresh back from the West Coast, where I was pretty much living a 10 month vacation that included watching and teaching children. Now, I'm back home with my parents. Who I dearly love. Please hear nothing other than that. But, I've lived on my own. I miss it. I didn't cherish those moments as much as I should have.
The past few weekends I've spend with friends and I've felt like I was back in those days. Living up life like there was no tomorow. I was surrounded by friends and community that I miss dearly. We never thought it would be the last time for us to all be together. But that time came.
Life is happening. We are moving on. We are dating. (Some of us.) We are moving cities.
We are becoming adults.
This was the last place I expected to be so suddenly.
It's scary. There are so many unknowns.
But, I can't help but think that something beautiful is right around the corner.
Here's to finding it.
Don't forget to check back later for the other post! :)
