19.9.12

a walking contradiction


Yesterday morning felt like fall and we walked to class holding hands, Lando kissed my cheek, he went into one building and I went into another. I bought a bagel from the bookstore and sat in a quiet little part of the building and read 2 chapters from a book for my cultural psychology class. I felt suddenly and completely nostalgic for the very moment I was in. Can you do that? I thought about how so very quickly all of this will be over. Rexburg. College. Kate & Lando as the only units of the Lines family. I wish I could slow time down and speed it up all at the same time. I wish I could be blindfolded and look into the future all at the same time. I wish I could revisit any moment that's ever made me feel this way.

I'm so happy you recognized one of those moments. You'll miss them. My fiance and I have been out of college for a year and a half now ... and we miss it. Terribly. Probably more than we are readily willing to admit. It was so easy, then. (But the paradox is, no matter where we are in life, we will always think that a particular time was easier. Happier. Trouble-free.)

Love this post, and I ate a bagel on campus yesterday too.

I definitely understand what you mean. This is our last year in college, which is awesome, but I know that I'll never be able to see him more frequently than I do right now. And even though homework can be a beast I love sitting next to him ,both of us doing our little projects.

I remember a particular moment when I felt this way after having just moved to Portland. I was at my school's library and it was snowing outside of these absolutely huge floor-to-ceiling windows of the three story building - and it practically never snows in Portland. I just sat there staring out those windows and ignoring my book. It was so beautiful and everything in my life was new and happy and sad all at the same time and I just wanted to hold on to that moment forever.

Mmmmhmmm. This is one of the reasons I like blogs - because I can write about a moment such as this which further cements it into my mind, then look back on it and experience it all over again.
