I’ve had this song stuck in my head for a few day now.
I just can’t get over it.
I’m leaving in two weeks. It’s so bittersweet. I’ve spent the past 9 months here, living with all these people and slowly falling in love with all of them. Everyone I love is here. Not just the ones I met while I was here but the ones who have been in my life prior to coming to Seattle.
Leaving your home is hard, leaving everyone you love is hard. But leaving the place you’ve finally come to know as home, the place you’ve fallen in love with, the place you left everything to come too, is even harder.
Yeah I’ll be back for the next school year, but it’ll be different when I come back. Some of the people that I’ve come to love so much won’t be here. They’ll have moved on, and although we won’t grow apart, distance still takes a toll.
I haven’t had to deal with anything this hard in what seems like forever. I know that I’ve grown and I’ve been through seasons that have prepared me for this, but that definitely doesn’t mean it’s not going to be hard.
It kind of all just hit me in the face today.
I haven’t cried like I did today in a really long time.
But it’s all worth it.
My eye caught a dark form lying on the river bottom. It took me a few moments to comprehend what I had stumbled upon. Lying peacefully in the shallow waters of the river, only a few meters from shore, was a full-grown cougar. The contrast between the serenity of the scene I was witnessing and what must have played out here in the cougar’s final moments made me shiver. It was the first shiver of many, as I stripped down and waded out into the icy water to get this shot. x
HOLY HELL WHAT A FIND. This is one of my favorite photos ever now.
This is crazy
Don’t watch this if you’re soaked in gasoline because it will warm your heart and you will burn to death and die.
