My last day in Columbus, and I wake up face-down. Not for any exciting reason, though… rolled over in my sleep. Face-down and with a stiff neck, and a completely unexplainable headache. 5:30 in the morning and I’m, unfortunately, awake. I should go back to sleep for another 2 hours. I can’t.

My last day in Columbus? I’ve had a good NBC internship for the summer, briefly ventured into the Kroger cashier business, spent plenty of time sitting around. Nine months and I’ll be done with school, getting a REAL job, sitting around like 2 days a year. I’m not going to like that, but my last ‘free’ summer is done, and in a couple of weeks I’ll be back at school. I knew August was coming, even knew it would come too fast, and there was nothing to do about it.

Married. My freakin roommate from a year ago got married. Two years ago this time he was completely single, just like the rest of us, and the impending doom of graduation was not looming over our shoulders. I don’t even love school – heck, I hate most of my classes – but just like summer, I know school’s end will bringing something harder. And between my stiff neck, patented headache, and cranky 5:37 in the morning mood, none of it seems to matter. And I can do nothing about it. I roll my head around and crunch out some of the sore feeling and fall asleep knowing things won’t seem so crappy in the morning.
