To my long time family,
Today is my last day in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Tomorrow at 5:00 am i depart for California to attend college at UC Berkeley. I leave my family of five behind and plenty of loving, supporting, and amazing friends. I tend to play myself off as stoic, but as the date looms: i'm terrified. I've had way too many people cry on my shoulders today- nagging mother included. So, i come to this community for words of encouragement. You guys have always been around and God knows today is a day i could use it.
