I think the craziest thing about May is just how fast it flew by. It's hard for me to put it into words but in a way I just really wanted to press pause in May 2016 for a little bit. It was surely the month of lasts- the last full month together, the last assembly, the last time walking into the halls of PVHS as a student, the last high school tests I'll ever have to take, the last time I'll sit in my car before school until I see my friends and am socially safe to walk in with them, the last time I have to wake up at 5:30 am to hear an awesome seminary lesson, the last time my student council advisors will try to quiet the hustle and bustle of our class for a few minutes to relay our tasks for the day, even the last time seeing some of the people I went to school with for years. Truthfully I don't know if I was entirely ready for May to end and that's because the next time I write a monthly post I'll have pictures of me and my friends in caps and gowns, my last day with Eliza before she leaves for BYU summer term, and the last time I see Dylan for 2 years. There will be so many things gone that make my gratitude lists all the time a month from now which is tough for me to even wrap my brain around. There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind but in all honesty May is going to be hard to leave behind. I'll always hold these memories close to my heart.
