Rainbow || Rainbow northern lights.

(no subject)

I'm going soon. I'm looking forward to receiving my Mcgonagall hat there, too. It'll be my official reading hat.

My packing this year was so different. Last year I didn't pack enough, this time I undoubtedly packed too much. I'm just so used to packing with the, "Oh, I'll be spending a lot of time by myself" mentality. I totally forget that at Rowe I'm all in for community.

But it was fun anyway. I packed clothes and books and my flutes (one metal, one wooden) as well as my laptop purely for writing (I type faster than I write, so though I do both typing creates quicker stories). Other stuff. Fun stuff. CDs... I don't know.

I guess I felt that when last time I felt as though I had brought so little of my home with me, this time I would need more. But now I'm remembering that 'home is where the heart is' feeling. I remember that it doesn't matter how much stuff I bring, as long as my heart is in it.

Still, I've become a clothes person. With the removal of sports from my life I've noticed quite a procession into the world of clothing. Not fashion, per say, but definitely style. I have my own style (but it doesn't follow fashion, usually). So often I have a lot of clothes. Somehow, they've come to mean a lot to me.

I packed up. My room is still messy and full. It makes me giggle. I wasn't supposed to pack the trunk entirely, I was supposed to 'do it in chunks' so we could move the chunks down the stairs to put back into the trunk. I didn't know how I was going to do that. I have quite a few 'chunks' but the majority of clothing is to the bottom left. So instead, I just brought it down the stairs and out into the living room myself. It isn't too horrible.

I'm tired. I'm excited. I'm nervous. I'm missing people already--when I come home, my work begins in entirety. It's as though it goes Rowe-->school, even though in reality there's a good 16 days in-between.

I would ADORE getting letters. I think I'm going to make a separate post for that. One that's friends only.
