My Life (In as many posts as it takes) #42

Saying goodbye. 

Its been a packed weekend and I wish I had had the time to upload photos for ya'll but I'll do it next week. =) 

On Friday was the last day of the Co-op I've been apart of for 12 weeks. It was really sad because the directer who has been their for 13 years left this semester and were not coming back either. It was an amazing 12 weeks, I learned how to make architectural drawings, I wrote a book, I made a quilt and I preformed in two skits. I made some new friends and it was really amazing.
On Friday, I said goodbye to that. 

These are photos I took of Rebekkah for fun. I was experimenting with no face photos. =) 

On Saturday I spent 2 hours and 45 minutes waiting at a subway for some friends to pick me up. I hate being alone, but it was totally worth it to spend time with them. The girl I met up with was Lauren, one of my best friends. We've known eachother for eight years, emailed almost every day and now shes moving away from Texas. 
On Saturday I had to say goodbye to her for what may be years.

I'm not great with goodbyes. Any of my friends will tell you when I have to say goodbye I get uncomfortable with all the somberness and usually make a joke which makes for an odd goodbye. I find them hard, but goodbyes are part of life and right now I'm trying to look forward to what's coming next. But theres always a sad feeling when I have to say goodbye to something I loved.

Do you find goodbyes hard?

  1. Yes, I find goodbyes very hard! And it never gets easier. But yes, that is also the time to look forward to what comes next. Very heart-felt post!

    P.S. The pictures are A-MAZ-ING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love them!! They look like book-covers!!!!!

    1. Thanks! Its always good to know that someone feels the same way! Hopefully that will have not been our last meeting before you leave. =)

      Thank you!! =D

  2. Awwh, I'm sorry Mikayla. =( Goodbyes are so hard. <3

  3. Goodbyes are so extremely hard, aren't they? I'm so sorry about your friend moving. A couple of years ago, a family that was our family's best friend, moved all the way to Seattle, so I feel your pain. It's really hard to get through and I'm horrible at goodbyes as well.
    Oh by the way, I love these pictures :)
    Followed your blog too, by the way!
