Laguna Beach has always been one of my favorite shows. I loved watching everyone grow up and see where life took them. I’ve never been able to pick a side, team LC or team Kristin, because both are just so crucial to the show. I’ve always found ways to identify with all of the characters. I can be a bit bitchy, but fun, just like Kristin, bubbly like Lo, hung up on the same guy, like Lauren. It’s crazy how easily the characters were to relate to, but it’s especially hitting me right before senior year. I see all of the fun times of senior year rolling ahead, but I can’t help but realize the inevitable ending; leaving NCSSM, Oxford, and all of my amazing friends from Episcopal youth events… I know college is going to be such a great time, but I’m terrified I will only grow apart from my current friends. I love meeting new people, and cannot wait for the new faces of a new school, but I don’t want the people I love to just slip out of my life. I’m such a sentimental person, I’ll probably spend the last month of NCSSM crying, and I REALLY can’t imagine how I will handle senior CCY celebration. I’ve been going to events since the 6th grade and have had so many of the best times of my life with these people, and the thought of leaving them kills me. Especially since my chances of going to my last Happening are looking bleak… I’m going to make it my goal to create an event in our diocese specific to bringing us all back together.
Alright, done being prematurely sad… I still have one more year of all of these things.
