I have lived in South Florida my entire life. In two weeks I will be leaving home and everything that I know to move to Tallahassee and start school and the next chapter of my life. I've realized that there are many things I need to do before making this move, and I have to start now.
1- Clean Out My Room
In packing for school I have realized how much stuff I have that I truly do not need. So as I continue to choose what my necessities are, I know I want to get rid of what I no longer need.
2- Go To A Drive In Movie
Going to the drive in is such a key summer experience that it makes sense to go before starting school.
3- Watch Movies With My Mom
My mom and I have a long list of movies that we say we'll watch, but we've never gotten around to it. I want to start on that list and appreciate this time with her.
4- Watch The Sunrise At The Beach
This is another summer activity that I still haven't gotten around to this year.
5- Spend Time With My Best Friends
None of my closest friends are going to the same school as me. With this time remaining I really want to appreciate our time together since we may not see each other for a few months.
6- Write A Letter To My Future Self
This is a period of time that involves a lot of self reflection for myself. In four or five years, I'll be able to appreciate looking back on this time in my life.v
7- Finish Packing
Although it isn't very fun, packing is a very key step in the whole moving process.
8- Play Cards With My Dad
My dad and I have had a running game of cards since I was in middle school. We never go very long without a game so we have to cram in some extras while we have time.
9- Spend Time To Myself
I'm about to share a room with someone else for the first time in my life. Even with setting boundaries, I won't have the opportunities for alone time like I have right now.
10- Try To Appreciate South Florida
Growing up in South Florida I have never been able to truly appreciate it. Now as I am leaving though, I am doing my best to acknowledge all that my home has to offer and how much I'll miss it.
