I had a pretty hard time waking up realizing that the day was here, I'd be going home. I woke up, and decided not to eat breakfast. Before we knew it, it was time to say goodbye. Everyone came out into a circle outside the door and after one of the staff spoke, everyone lined up to say goodbye. After all hugs and hand shakes, I got on the golf cart and we drove off. It was hard. I cried harder and harder quietly as I watched the lab disappear. We got to the airport and before we knew it we were off.
I had my fun sitting in the copilots seat on this first flight, headed to Fort Lauderdale.
Once we got there I got a cab, and let a couple join me. They paid their parts of the 30 dollar cab ride, so it was only 10 bucks for me. I used it to get food later...boy was that food good, and boy was I starved.
Next up was my flight from Fort Lauderdale to Tampa.
Dad picked me up at the Tampa Airport and then I was home.
I have to admit, it is very very hard being back. It feels strange, and I don't see anything the same. I am having a very hard time settling in and getting into the groove of things. I went for a walk to the USF Marine Science building (my usual nightly walk). It was weird and hard...hard seems to be the word. I didn't like it, and I don't like it. But what do I do? Just press on and keep going forward...eventually this feeling will wear off and I will warm back up and get back into the groove of things here.
Next up, I start college. But first...placement tests.

I love airplane rides. I enjoy seeing and flying through the clouds...
