I am leaving in two weeks and one day. This being my third year of college it's really not that big of a deal (in my opinion... I think my mom would beg to differ) that I am leaving so soon. That is, however, until I have to start saying goodbye to people. Now maybe I am just being a little too ridiculous, but really do think that Harry Potter being over might have something to do with how sad I am about all the changes that are happening in my life. I am just a little nostalgic these days. I mean, I am done with CHINA, which I was looking forward to for so long. Victoria is freakin graduating from high school (by that I mean she has already graduated...) and going to UVA orientation tomorrow. Susan will be in HIGH SCHOOL. That's the insane part about this whole thing. I just can't believe I am already done with two years of college, about to embark on my third year and starting to figure out what I want to do with my life, living in apartments and having my own car and all of those sorts of things. Life is just flying by way too fast and I don't have time to think about it! But that's probably a good thing because when I do think about it then I just get way too emotional.

In better news, I am excited about seeing Kristin Friday for the first time since Easter. I think that's why this summer has been more boring than usual: she has not been home at all. I am glad she got to do camp teams but I have spent much more time in my house. Which, I have realized, is not bad at all. In fact I pretty much love staying in my house, having nothing to do, watching TV or reading or just sitting. I have become somewhat of a hermit. But I think it's because at school it is constant gogogo with homework and so on and constant being around people so at home it is nice to just chill out and relax and have absolutely NOTHING to do.

Also, Harry Potter is OVER. OVER. I know what happens in the end. I finished it on Monday morning. I can't believe that I have nothing to look forward to. I don't really know what to do with my life these days. I guess look forward to the movies? But that's not even really the same at all. I just have to say I was completely satisfied with the ending, though it was rather nostalgic and it made me want to cry. But ENOUGH with the emotional business.

We went to the Midnight Magic party at Barnes and Noble (actually and at Borders too... there we saw Hagrid on STILTS... it was pretty intense). Here are some photos:

Here's to life without Harry Potter
