Saying Goodbye...

(me, Megan, Lisa, Katelyn, Tracy, Michele, Jessie)

I have never had trouble saying goodbye. At the end of High School, I was ready to leave, at the end of my marathon Church History trip after my senior year, I was ready to say goodbye, even the end of my freshman year I was ready to say goodbye. Every-time a romantic relationship ended, I have been able to walk away without too much regret... but not this time. On Wednesday, I said goodbye to all 6 of my roommates and best friends. We have been friends since my freshman year, and we have lived together, eaten together, studied together, gone to church together, confided in each other, played together, and been stressed together for last two years. That has now come to an end, as 2 of them leave for missions in the next two months, and 2 more of them are probably going on missions in the fall... It is a little weird and very sad to look back at those two wonderful years and know that they are over forever. Never again will we all live together, share food, and the same bathroom. Like anything, life moves on and I do as much as anyone. Goodbye Apt #208 and its wonderful memories! I will not forget you.


  1. Landen, this makes me so sad! Glad you've had a lovely experience with them. I love you!

  2. Landen-

    I'm halfway through a post that starts EXACTLY the same way. At least we are not alone in our inability to say goodbye.

  3. I feel your pain! I've said good-bye to more good friends than I can count. With today's technology though, it's pretty easy to stay in touch with friends!

  4. That's great that you have such close friends. But really, you can still be close friends! Don't let the friendship die!
