Goodbye August

   I'm going to miss August and all the things that came with it. I feel that August was defiantly a month for exploration; I went many places in my thoughts and in the world. It was also a month where things I thought were make-believe became reality. I feel like I'm now ready to conquer the school year and all the obstacles that come with it.
   Exploration has always fascinated me but this month I discovered that along with exploring the world you can also explore your thoughts and emotions too. This month I came to the realization that I really love my own company. Don't get me wrong I do love others company but I feel that being in my company is better for thinking and of course blogging. I just enjoy the peacefulness in being quiet. Emotions of mine got sorted this month too; I figured out how I feel about things that are often discussed and people. Enough said there.
   I also did explore a lot of places in this beautiful world of ours. I went to the Columbia Gorge quite a few times to explore the water falls. The beauty of something so simple is amazing. Towards the end of August I went fishing with a few of my friends on the dragon boating team. We went to a beautiful place called Estacada. I also went to Council Crest for a little with a friend to take pictures, that was fun. One of the last places I went, or was dragged to, was back to Estacada. My mom, moms friend, sister, and I went on a half day road trip which was nice but painful since I had a headache from the start of the day. In the long run of it all I had such a good time getting to explore many places in August.
   Unfortunately, my life has hit a sad turning point and I'm realizing that what I thought was make-believe is becoming reality. On July 14th my family of three (my mom, sister, and I) received a letter from our landlord saying that she wanted her place back because she is moving back in. The letter came without notice and shocked all of us. Our landlord is giving us until Oct. 7th to move out of the place that was just becoming home to me. I thought that it would be a while before we started moving but, before I knew it all of us were packing boxes and moving those boxes that were filled with the living room, bed rooms, kitchen, and bathroom into a storage unit. I am still in complete shock.
   On the last day of August, which was yesterday, I received a letter from a friend that in an odd since I wasn't sure was real. Although we texted all the time and Skyped it was hard to feel more than the connection between the screen. But, she sent me a letter after I sent her one and I have come to the realization she is more than just a friend online. It was a great was to end August!
   Now, it is September and I am two days away from starting up the school year again. I am a little worried about my Junior year of high school but I am hoping for the best this year. I'm hoping that it's not to painful having to move, that I will still go many places, that I will make new friends, good health, and so much more. I'm hoping for the best in this life where everyone goes through many ups and downs.
Goodbye August...Hello September,
Vanessa
