I can smell Spring in the air. Here in Waterloo we have finally been blessed with a few days where bombers and cardigans have been enough to keep warm. I can feel a transition coming sooner than I had thought. I’ve been a little scatter brained recently, like the random assortment of fashion photos this post features….. It’s partly due to the overwhelming heaps of term papers and exam cramming, but also partly due to the anticipation of the huge uplift my life is about to endure. The university town that I grew to call my home these last four years is being taken from me and slowly but surely the pieces of my life that I set up here are being dragged into a new space- whether I’m ready or not.
It’s hard to describe the feeling of leaving the four walls that made you who you are. So often we take for granted this place because we’re stressed or life just isn’t working out the way we thought it would. But if there’s one thing I know for certain it’s how much has changed these last four years and how appreciative I am for ending up exactly where I am right now. I guess I’ve come to realize that a home isn’t a home without the people inside who make it what it is. The bounds of this campus aren’t what made me this person, it’s the relationships and soulmates I found along the way. How lucky am I to have found shelter in people I never even knew existed four years ago. As much as my life is about to change, I know this is the one thing that will remain constant.
