“I say a pressure drop, oh pressure, oh yeah, pressure drop a drop on you.” Pressure DropToots and the Maytals

I knew this was coming; the pressure would would start to close in the closer it got to our time of departure and then the reality would start to set in. Well folks…it’s definitely setting now! I will say that I’m having a bit of stress at the moment. It seems like everything is happening at the last minute. I have my last two classes this week ending on Thursday, I have to meet my advisor at UNCG Friday, grade final projects over the weekend and fit in some cleaning in between all of that. There’s some extra things I have to do as well and then we are out of here next Wednesday, May 14!

I want to share with you all some info that some of you are not aware of: my parents live in Paradise. This place is absolutely gorgeous. The view of the water is breathtaking and often when eating at the dinner table we look out of the window and call it, “The Moving Picture Show.” 

 
   

 

It’s just so beautiful. It will be sad to leave this for the summer because the beauty spans across all types of days, not just sunny ones. 

  
The nights are fantastic too.

   
 
Who wouldn’t love this right? Please don’t take my talks of beauty as being boastful, it’s just hard not want to share it with others. Plus, I just want you all to know what I’m leaving. Even though I’m going to be exploring A LOT, I will still long for warm days on the creek, and wish I was smelling that wonderful salt smell blowing through the air on windy days. 

It’s home.
