I will miss the west side of the state because of…

…Fremont, a little bit, because of its: old caring church members, safety, family, well wishing customers, home of my dogs, trusted doctors and dentists and mechanics, lake, Baby Food Festival sales, and breadsticks.

…Grand Rapids and its: best beer cityness, giant tire swing, familiar roads, amazing coffee shops, smiling faces, ArtPrize, volunteering opportunities, East Town, art museum, great bars, houses of friends that are my home, amazing downtown, culturally enriched festivals, and clean tattoo parlor.

…Calvin College with all of its: crazy good concerts, commons lawn shenanigans, hikes up the science building stairs, Fish House beverages, Cave Cafe, and hipsters.

…Lake Michigan in all of its splendor.
…lake effect weather
…home
…Amber
…memories
…familiarity

Sequoyah Prep School - About Rain

I miss my college friends. The time spent together laughing, crying, or being silent. The concerts attended, mix tapes made, and music sang. The moments for dancing, classing, breakfasting, or sleeping. I want them back.

Life is Good. Camp is Better: Bungee Cords ›

From the top of the tallest pine tree at camp there are invisible bungee cords that stretch from the very tip of the tree to our hearts. 

Now, bungee cords are elastic; they’re not chains. That means they stretch. They allow us to leave camp and go out into the world at home, school, and work. 

But, bungee cords only stretch so far before they give you a little tug backwards. You can tell when your bungee cord is stretched too far. You might feel sad or lonely and need to remember the friendship, love and support of camp. You might be going through life without remembering the lessons you learned at camp. So when you stretch your bungee cords too much they give you a little tug to remind you what’s really important in life. 

Our invisible bungee cords can be tugged in many different ways. The tugs might be when you hear a camp song, remember a funny thing that happened at camp, see or hear from a camp friend, hear laughter, see a starry sky that reminds you of camp, or just feel the love and support of camp. 

A tug on your bungee cord can make many different things happen. Maybe your bungee cord will tug you all the way back to camp next year or maybe it will simply bring you a smile to brighten your day. However you stretch your bungee cord, remember that it will always tie your heart to the top of the tallest tree at camp and in turn tie your heart to everyone else’s heart forever.

Taylor Swift - Never Grow Up

Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger
And it’s so quiet in the world tonight.
Your little eyelids flutter cause you’re dreaming
So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light.
To you everything’s funny, you got nothing to regret.
I’d give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that.

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up.
Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little.
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up.
Don’t you ever grow up, it could stay this simple.
I won’t let nobody hurt you, won’t let no one break your heart.
And no one will desert you.
Just try to never grow up. Never grow up.

You’re in the car on the way to the movies,
And you’re mortified your Mom’s dropping you off.
At 14 there’s just so much you can’t do
And you can’t wait to move out someday and call your own shots.
But don’t make her drop you off around the block.
Remember that she’s getting older too.
And don’t lose the way that you danced
around in your pj’s getting ready for school.

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up.
Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little.
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up.
Don’t you ever grow up, it could stay this simple.
No one’s ever burned you, nothing’s ever left you scarred.
And even though you want to, just try to never grow up.

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room.
Memorize what it sounded like when your Dad gets home.
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said,
And all your little brother’s favorite songs.
I just realized everything I have is someday gonna be gone.

So here I am in my new apartment,
In a big city; they just dropped me off.
It’s so much colder that I thought it would be,
So I tuck myself in and turn my night light on.

Wish I’d never grown up.
I wish I’d never grown up.

Oh I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up.
I could still be little.
Oh I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up.
It could still be simple.
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up.
Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little.
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up.
Don’t you ever grow up, it could stay this simple.
Won’t let nobody hurt you,
Won’t let no one break your heart.
And even though you want to, please try to never grow up.
Oh, don’t you ever grow up.
Oh, never grow up, just never grow up.
-I just worked my first day at my new job.  Well sort of.  I finished training and got assigned my first 2 cases.  It’s exciting and scary at the same time.  It’s everything I’ve wanted, yet I want something different.  It’s me, still wanting to be a child and go back to the things I’ve missed but also wanting to leap ahead into the unknown.  It’s me being a little girl, but also an adult.  Why does life have to be this way?
