I am crazy. I admit that.

It's 2:20 am on Friday, May 6th.

I have been up for almost 20 hours. And yet I can't sleep.

What does one do at this hour when one has just arrived home from college for the summer? Why, unpack, of course!

Ah, home.

The irony of all ironies? I wished I was back at Campbell with my friends about 10 minutes after I left.

So yes, here's my day:
First off, I didn't finish preparing for my exam till 11:30 last night, and then couldn't fall asleep till after 2:00. Keep that in mind.
6:30 - wake up
7:15 - breakfast, surprisingly run into Ryann and Kyle
8:00 - Stats exam
8:50 - back at my dorm, throw wet towels from fridge defrosting into dryer, head to bookstore
9:00 - return books
9:40 - go to business office to put money from returning books in Creek Bucks account
10:00 - back at my dorm, finish packing last few things I used that morning
10:25 - Tyler arrives, begin loading bags into his GINORMOUS van
10:30 - Ian and Kyle arrive
10:50 - finish loading all my crap into Tyler and Kyle's vans and Ian's car, Kyle goes to get Ryann from a meeting, Tyler heads to storage place, Ian and I head back in for the last bit of stuff where we realize we forgot my bookcase and are thankfully able to fit it in Ian's car
10:57 - Ian and I arrive at storage place where the others already are unloading
11:05 - finish unloading (YES, in forty minutes!!!), talk for a minute, hugs, head in several directions, Ian takes me back to my dorm
11:10 - lunch
11:45 - begin taking my stuff outside in preparation for Mommom's arrival
12:00 - Mommom arrives, load my suitcases and three containers, TV, and computer in her car
12:05 - check out with my RA
12:15 - leave Campbell

All of that to say I did more before noon today than I did in any entire day all semester. I should be exhausted! And yet, now it's 2:35, and here I am.
I have amazing friends. Tyler, Kyle, and Ian were all so adorable about not letting me pick up ANYTHING heavy. Even Ryann made me carry the light trash bags!! Which is probably a good thing, since I was plenty worn out with all I did do. And they refused to be paid for helping me. Ian told me it was payback for tutoring him, Ryann said there was no way she could accept money when Mom has missed so much work from being sick (she's doing better, thankfully), and Kyle actually laughed and told me not to be ridiculous. Tyler, well, I didn't even know he was coming until Tuesday at our final! I hadn't asked him because I figured the other three were plenty, and he was like "Well, they're going, so I might as well come, too!" All righty then.

from left there's Ryann, Teri, Kyle, Ian, me, Dr. Steegar, and Tyler on the last day of class

So as you can see, Ian is NOT a big guy. Imagine my surprise when I turn around in the parking lot and see Ian carrying out my brown recliner. My huge recliner. He only made it halfway to the van as I stared in bewilderment before he couldn't take any more and stopped for Kyle to come help. Kyle, on the other hand, is 6'3 and can carry my recliner by himself. I asked Ian why he did that when there were two other guys who could help. His response? "I don't know. It was there." Boys. :p

Best welcome home present EVER, though? When Mom got home from work, she took me to get mani-pedis and to dinner at Las Fincas. :D

So yes, I miss my friends, but I'm home. Home is good. Home has Blake. And home is where Matt will be tomorrow night. :D

  1. Isn't funny how you think that when you get home you will just crash for days, because that's what your body tells you it needs... then you get home and find this new found energy in everything. :)
