Life is pulling everyone in different directions.
Mason left for his internship in Chicago. Ryan and Jp left for their internship in St. Louis. Gabbie is in New York for her dad’s wedding, then she’s backpacking around Europe with Alicia. Zak is actually still working as the dairy guy at HyVee and playing soccer for Doane. Josh and Morgan are disgustingly happy and planning their future wedding at a winery in California. Erika has a steady job and a steady boyfriend in Lincoln. Ben is about to come home and make Jenna the happiest woman alive for a month then he will be deployed and it will be shitty. Rachel is dating an old guy with a daughter and is about to move in with him. Blake is spending the summer researching at Cornell. I’m researching in San Antonio. Life is pulling everyone in different directions.
This seems like the last supper. I don’t think we are ever going to be back in the same place doing the same things like we have for the past six years. Everything still feels the same, but everything is changing. We officially sold the Broadwater house. I no longer have a home in Nebraska. I no longer have a reason to drive 14 hours up here. Not that anyone is here anyways. Life is pulling everyone in different directions.
This is where I grew up.I found and lost my love for volleyball here.I discovered my love for science that I am still developing. I had my first shot of vodka here. I lost my virginity in my basement bedroom. I fell in love here. I made amazing friends that truly care about me. These are amazing memories, but they are only memories. They are memories of people and places that no longer exist. Life is pulling everyone in different directions.
This is my last couple of weeks to make memories that feel like they fit here. Once I leave, I may never come back. Life is pulling everyone in different directions.
