I haven't made or specifically focused on loss in a while. And because have gone through one of the biggest changes on April 30, I thought I could do both. This is a list of all the things I've lost after graduating.
A wack sleep schedule (hopefully).
The ability to turn towards the person sitting next to me and say hi because we both have literally nothing else to do before class .
A reason to be tired all the time. Now I'll just be tired.
Movie theater discounts until sixty.
Close proximity to most of my friends.
My favorite job.
Homework. Thank god, no more homework!
Not being able to read the books I want because of all the other books I have to read.
The insanity of a turbulent schedule.
Living thirty minutes from family.
The need to stay in West Michigan.
Probably a car because mine won't make it across the country.
My identity as a student.
Published writers encouraging me to keep writing.
The place where I have grown the most, cried the most, loved the most.
The place that has set me up for the rest of my life.
